My call is a horrific el Nino pattern until mid January then a big monsoon season bringing us back to slightly positive SOI.

Anywhere south of you and west of longreach to be in a generational drought that forces hundreds of families off their land, with banks selling to corporate farmers.

Barely any spring time thunderstorms down in Sydney so far.

Been some nice Sth swell with NE winds lately. Clean morning surf. My lats are still sore from Monday haha, haven't paddled so much for at least a year.

Yeah and so far no crazy October winds.

Good, I love a big thunderstorm.

Darkening skies, watching the radar, the rumbling in the distance slowly getting closer, the change in wind direction & then BOOM! Chaos, destruction, wind, rain, hail, lightning & thunder.

I'm always disappointed when they miss my area - which is more often than not :cry:

250000 was not my figure, read it properly, personnel abuse sorta negates any thing you have to say. I have to doubt now that you have surfed any good waves yourself let alone uncrowded, so you have limited understanding.The only contact some guys have with good waves is through blokes like steve.
Full set dodging kooks , what are you el? doubt your much better, learn to embrace your inner kook, life in the surf will be easier, stop trying to be hot when ya not :-D-: Steve does this to make money at other peoples expense, he only came back here cause Nick left.

The other blokes are right, not all journos are the same, I never seen Nick Carrol write travel brouchers.

Everyone told me Keramas was insanely busy, violent, jap infested etc. just had the week with 5-8 ft to 3-4 ft. Bigger days 10-12 guys max, smaller days no probs as well.It depends I guess. And if you wanted the waves you got them.

Everyone who was interested in surfing Gnarloo already knew about it a long time ago. It has it's own website and is a well-publicised local tourist attraction, FFS.

I can't see what the problem would be.
You might like to think you could tandem naked belly slide on a 10’2 finless without shrieking like a little girl, but really it's not possible.
