yeah, but that isn't the only stretch that picks up S swell....it's just the biggest.

few other corners and coves that have been making beautiful music with it over winter.

Yeh, I know. I have been driving too. But when I said 'around here' that's what I was talking about.

Bondi....swell swing right around to the south overnight. A bit onshore but worth a paddle. Waters cold.

I'm in Noosa. These northerly winds could drive a man insane.

You've got to turn your back on it this time of year.

Spring sucks I reckon. You can get surf but it's usually windy and cold. Got a cramp today. Haven't had one since this time last year.

there's a place nearby which is good to great and possibly even epic in ENE swell with N winds.

Trouble is the swell isn't getting in.
And the little bit that's there is swamped in surf schoolers and SUPs. #*!

Dawn tomoz. 2-3 foot ENE swell at 7-8 sec with a light WSW wind with the tide running out. peaks will be ripe for the pickings.

Pretty ordinary but still worth a paddle. Surfed it from before first light til about 7am. Was a touch bigger earlier on with a few overhead sets. Wonky and fairly weak but still some ok runs.

Got this pic just for Steve Shearer. Storm water bank with seagulls bathing in the run off. Breath it in Steve.

looks boring and crowded, but still much better than what I got today, which was 5/8's of fukall.

few little sniffs of an early season tradewind swell coming this way next week. If so, I have a little fun park of wedges in the back pocket you might be interested in having a look at.

Some fun chest-high peaks all to myself for an hour on the NB's. Gotta love NE swell.
