I'm just casting my mind back to 2015 and remember there were quite a few south swells, which would have been good in your neck of the woods. Not so good this side of the border, unless you want to duke it out with 500 people on the points.

this autumn has got me completely flummoxed with respect to the pattern change.

It was supposed to be a La Nina tendency spring/summer and we got record dry conditions and an endless spring. now the pacific looks more like a quasi El Nino and we are in record flood territory.
There seems a complete and total decoupling of actuality from the expected pattern based on pacific basin tendencies.

Hasn't it been fairly classic La Nina except for this Debbie disruption?

unless you count record dry conditions for NENSW and SEQLD as "classic La Nina" then no. They are supposed to be the areas most affected by la nina, which is a wet signal.
Ballina had under 300mm for the whole spring and summer.

We've had about 700 for march alone and it shows no sign of relenting.


Saltman, doesn't look like it. Last couple of days has been semi-clean 4-6ft- no-one out.......surfable for sure but no way on gods earth am I going to surf alone in that floodwater.
I think it'll be at least a week or two before the water even remotely clears. But by all means if it you're up for it there is uncrowded surf.

Maybe Nate Silver is doing some temp work on the ENSO desk to get over the Trump debacle?

Well....we've just had record heatwaves followed by record rainfall. Maybe a 28 day swell on the way.

Mm kinda thinking of a Friday morning -post daylight saving - OX feast -as the pass will probably be packed
Still undecided as open beaches may have calmed down by then with some new banks
Am in Sydney till tomorrow so am guessing

2 guys out right now, which has been about the average all week. It's all yours if you don't mind paddling around in floodwater that smells like dead cows and catshit.

I'd say your immune system would thank you for it.

hard to say at this stage....there's been incredible amounts of sand shunted around, possibility of some total hall of fame sand when it settles, but alot of what was pretty epic sand looks to have been pushed wide. It's still there but needs time to settle and come back to papa.
