They are just using a WW3 wave model like everyone else but with no enhancement for local anomalies nor bathymetry, and normal imperial feet.

kJs are only 6,500 because of a pretty short period, not significantly more than the 4,500 of the recent modest Indo swell

I took my boyo out for his first surf at the Point today. really, really hard offshore. we had a corner to ourselves. it was quite amazing.
I said go in past the hut and he went straight in and clambered up like a little monkey and claimed it.

Temples early. Only one person out at 6:30am. Got a few nice fast little waves and a cover up. The crowd had slowly increased to 20 when I paddled/reef hopped in at 8:30 - tide just about too low to surf it anyway

Dodged a bullet this time Cranked. Minimal effects, minor debris clean up.
I think where Trev is/was in Canada visiting his daughter, is getting hit now.

Yeah. We got out of NS just in time.
Serious issues there today with massive power outages, flooding and a collapsed crane.
It's my son, offy.
My daughter and other son are in Brisbane.

Such a great day here, solid 4-6’ SE swell totally cleaned and polished by a fresh to strong WSW that relaxed a bit through the early arvo, I went back to the 6’1” ten channel singly and switched the fin for one with depth but a bit less base/overall volume, the thing was so good for the conditions.

Why the single? Was it down the line type surf?

(I surfed a single also and often do if it’s overhead and walled up)

Was the east component in the swell due to some type of refraction around your local reefs? Nulla was about as directional south as ever
