All hail the numberless report!
Quite so. I for one am loath to put any number at all on a surf report, its all much too controversial now

Cranked, I think maybe shadow puppets or mimes are the way

big pushy S swell with a ton of wind and current here.

Cronulla point at 4-6 foot. Low tide, tricky roll in and fast and sectiony with the south swell often running too wide across second reef. Got slapped fairly hard in the trough on a too-late too-deep take off, as the wave pinched off in front of me.

A bunch of blustery swell and peaks up greenhills. Looked easily 8 foot. But not a single ingredient to focus the swell energy, with the takeoff zone shifting all over the place.

Nice little swell getting in to my local this arvo.
Got about 10 waves in a bit over an hour and got the hell out of there at 3, leaving it to all the schoolies and teacher.
Just about a dozen of us. By the time I drove away at 3.20, there were about 30 and more coming.
Hope for an early tomorrow.
