why not go in October, for eg, when Indo is pumping and it's sheer misery here.
Wife is the queen of finding the cheap flight
Return for $260 each and so booked em 10 months ago
Any primo waves are a bonus Looks like a good long period swell hitting the chain around 13th


Have another trip booked in August

Thursday and Friday are shaping up to look pretty nuts. 6-8 foot of SE/ESE swell. Must be due for some sick leave.

Yep. Will take either the Thursday or Friday off. Will decide by Tuesday based on the forecast. There'll be lots of options down south based on the looks of the forecast.

Thinking the same thing. Missed all weekend and can't surf early this week - i'm not missing this swell or these conditions.

Autumn has started beautifully. March has been ultra consistent.

the last one we had when it went for 7 odd years back at the start of this century ... i still remember all kinds of waves. the drought was terrible and had a massive impact on general life, for sure. but wave-wise i still remember a number of full blown swells.

eg: that damon harvey 8-foot wave from outside snapper to little groyne kirra happened bang in the middle of it.
