The June 6 2016 swell was fkn monstrous. Did you not witness it? And wedding cake is only about five minutes from where you live and have done for decades as I understand it. You've never seen it get huge out there?

Minus 2 ft obviously Trev.
I find the big part of the....how big is the surf scale? Discussion the oddest. I don't think Ive ever seen a wave in Australia that I'd call bigger than 15 ft......maybe 18ft as in wave face size. That presumably would be 6-8ft on the Iggy scale.
Head South, old man

Every surfer I know uses the Iggy scale. Pretty much called at peak wave size - which is usually at takeoff

well beans you do realise that just because you haven't seen something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Well no Davros in this case it's more like if some crazy swell bombs somewhere in Oz but beanpole didn't see it, did it really occur

Lol. Sure. Speaking of I'm looking at a blown out DY just now

Asked you and others a question about the Stab guys in the general surf section. Find it almost bizarre who Beachgrit attacks Stab. I've read about the former owner who works for Surfstich complain about it but he doesn't give a reason.

Nope.

Re today, it came up to 6-8' then backed, then late this arvo filled back up to a solid 8', v groundswelly as opposed to the morning's semi windswell, I think it'll peak overnight down here and carry up the coast through Friday

It's always fine to add 2 foot when you're excited I reckon

Re: South Coogee....I've seen some of the biggest waves I've seen in Sydney breaking on that outer reef. I've seen people surfing it at that size. I've seen footage of Queenscliff Bombie that probably looks to be 18ft faces but I haven't seen it that big myself. I'm sure WA and Victoria gets bigger but NSW?
How often would that happen?

Cronulla point. 2-3 foot. Inconsistent but still a few ok ones coming through. Loofy will be happy to know that I christened his bonzer with its first official tube. Well, more of a 2 second head dip through first reef, but christened nevertheless
