I just hope that local wind doesn't spoil the parade when both swells arrive.

Maybe for you down there Steve but for me I need straight offshores to enable me to get uncrowded beachies.

it sucks. you got 13 kt S winds, while we have NNE at 13 kts ... according to the bom forecast, the S change isn't going to make it this far north either?

Pretty ordinary.

Surfed gurgly overhead pointsurf with power and shape on a slow building swell.

it was mediocre quality, uncrowded and fun.

Offshore up here at 4am (non DST :mrgreen: ). Big, heavy, peaks and long walls.
Mooloolaba buoy is down a again but I suspect a brief pulse overnight. Started dropping off by 7am.

Spring hasn't been too bad. What I am worried about is the apparent trend like last summer for us to enter a deep Nino type state. Dry, northerly pattern , no tradewinds.

That might last until March, like last year.

Agreed about Spring not being too bad....but the outlook is dire in the short term let alone your concerns for the medium-long term Steve!!!

And I can tell you, my plants and grass are screaming El Nino at me!!!!

There are the start of dark days.

All I can suggest is move near the nearest wavepool, build a bunker in the backyard and start hoarding ammunition, tinned food and iodine.

The only bright spot is the warm water anomaly off the NE/MidNSW coast.
