fuschia!
I know a spot that will be unreal early next week, and I have some leave to burn, but I'm the boss at the moment and can't get away.

Pretty much.

I've surfed 7 days straight up to 3 times a day and haven't had a bad surf. Summer has redeemed itself and it's only just begun.

Goldie might not like it much, all that nice point sand blown up?
I don't think it will get that big.
And even if it does, plenty of time to do a reno.

Cheeky swell this morning - great waves, no crowds.

There's been a sneaky little swell in the water all week.

AcessG prog looks (slightly) better for southern NSW as the fetch orientation slides southwards and aims up at targets to the south of the Hunter curve.

GFS is just a total dream for the whole East coast as the descending tropical low gets captured by a new cradling high and reintensifies in the lower Tasman.

It means a barrage of swell through a 180 degrees of swell window.

So much going on eh. There's even a really distant easterly fetch of 25 knot winds blowing out near Tahiti right now that should funnel some swell into the gun barrel just in time for the low to get going on it.

Jump on a cross country bus, mullet.
