Kirra needs twice the swell snapper needs... I don't think we'll get that.

Dunno Braith....I know your up there but I;m seeing another sustained tradewind swell pattern forming as of this weekend with potential for a Kirra finish if any (potential) tropical developments come to fruition.

Forecast glass deffo looks way more than half full to me.

Sand might be the biggest issue but as long as there is some kind of SE bias to the wind they can pump.

I don't think the banks fared to badly actually. I took a few screen grabs from one of the cams that shows the banks before and after the storm. I tried to get them all around about low tide.

Not sure what its like behind the rock but I reckon if it stays around this size it will be pretty good.

How many aliases do you have Matson? :lol:

The bank's deteriorated heaps, the CW camera shows it much better ... Go watch it on high and the left is starting break.

be interesting to see the Kirra effect on the superwank if there's any. Rainbow used to be a natural lagoon while the sand all sat out deeper in the bay and lined the old headland at greeny.

As Kirra takes a little more shape from the rock extension and little groyne starts exposing herself... I wonder if the lagoon at rainbow will reappear and with it, will greeny come back?

Be good to dream.

Yeah. Even watching it this morning at dead low it's fast, almost a closeout thru little M and all through the bay.

Greeny still looked good though.

You surf it? I'm gonna have a look at the beachies after lunch. Maybe on the high they'll be good?

I was on the beach at Snapper this morning. Some exciting 50 metre rides from behind the rock, though most waves didn't really do it. Nothing really much from outside Little Marley thru to half way across Rainbow Bay. Then some walling waves from the half way mark and into Greenmount. Looked pretty, a grand spectacle, but not breaking hard, guys just cruising trying not to roll off the back. Until a bit of a faster section as you entered Greenmount. Really crowded.

Um, Braithy that is the CW cam and Ben wouldn't be posting screenies of their cam, haha.

Also, you're correct with the reverse current on east swells, but.. all the wave action is pushing down the points to the north and this is where all the sand is being transported.

The reverse rip is a small channel running the other way which would be insignificant in relation to the amount of sand being transported by longshore drift to the north by the wave and swell action.

no my ankle is fucked from that big fin cut, haven't surfed since saturday.
spewing cos when I surfed Kirra on friday I blew it on the wrong boards (a 5'9 was too small), wanted to take my old 6'9" T&C thumbtail out for max paddle power.

looked kinda fun just down the road from mine this morning too.

Haha. I knew that. Ben's the only guy I know who screenshots and archives cam footage. Well Ben and now Scot.

You reckon there's any chance greeny rocks will come back if little groyne is? And would that mean the big gutter and lagoon at rainbow?

I can't see how extending big groyne could have such a big effect... But maybe?

I didn't get wet today. Had to take the daughter to the docs and by the time I was done if missed the high tide. Tomorra on the beachies near you might be the go.

I did mow my instant jungle though. So there's that.

finally had a surf, pretty fun even on dead low tide.
you know the brazzos are in town when you see packs doing retard stretches and calisthenics routines on the sand for 30 minutes while the wind turns onshore

Brazzos are known for pre-surf stretches?

up here some are, and the Japanese. The smaller the surf, the more the Japanese surfers stretch it seems
