Was rubbish down south, too close to the source probably. 3ft sets at best, closeouts everywhere. Wind went s/e and put a decent chop through it by lunchtime. Went out anyway as the tide came back in and the closeouts weren't quite as closey outy. Wasn't a bottom 50 but certainly wasn't anything worth writing about, except to let you know that while the surf may have been pumping in your neck of the woods, around here, it wasn't.

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
Well it seemed like there were two swells, one a bit shorter interval and one - bigger - longer interval and refracting a bit off bombie reefs

That longer interval one was magical and gorgeous. Very much a perfect winter's day in spring. Fcuk I'm sunburned.

God it was pathetic here, just about the worst example of straight south swell you could imagine.

I reckon Nicks local was one of the few places to work on the NB’s. Manly to Narra not much working for the early, plenty of size but a shitload of wind to deal with.

Bronte was looking good this arvo. Junior said it was pretty good this morning as well. Comp on and super crowded. About the maximum I'd have a crack at if I was feeling keen and it wasn't Sunday crowds. Plenty of close outs.

Yep, Bronte is a pretty solid club. General surfing standard is pretty high. There's actually a lot more grommets surfing there and at Bondi these days. Ten years ago there was a real tendency to ride lids.

Chest high this morning, 30 out, a bit lumpy but the offshore will fix that soon. I think I'll wait for the 22s swell due mid afternoon though.

Had a bash at Bronte. Mainly dodging close outs. Saw some very nice waves though. Managed to get one in.
