My surf-obsessed Swiss mate has been frothing on it for years.
I tried to point out they have mountains.

Meanwhile Otway is riding a man made (well, enhanced), river wave in Austria.
One of several apparently.

Down south will be larger than Sydney, looking at here this evening I reckon maybe 4-6' plus Syd, slowly dropping through the day, and maybe a foot or so on that south of Wollongong.

Very sea-statey, ie some larger but shorter-walled waves and the length and value in the mid sized ones.

Water is a deep brown here.

And lots of dead animals floating around for Narks I’m guessing

….this was pushing off the wall not diving in.

...running out of breath underwater hasn’t been an issue. Not too bad for a 62 y/o who surfs irregularly.

Pretty clean at Bondi. Killer rip today. Still nice little banks but I’m getting a bit stiff and sore from so many surfs. Always start to cease up after three days. Might do a few stretches before hitting it again this arvo.

this swiss wavegarden video is pretty fun to watch: https://fb.watch/4t1YJ-5N66/. i find josema odriozola nice to listen to - a semi-mechanical, semi-mellifluous kind of tone.
