Dunno, I'm across the street from the beach being caressed by the easterly.
You should have called, we've just finished some u-beaut BBQ'd Barra fillets accompanied by a pawpaw and mango salad, washed down with a refreshing white wine sangria.

Its not the done thing to ingest stout with seafood and fruity summer salads.

Any fairy worth their salt would know that.

looking a bit hoaxy and over-hyped now.

Everything moving too quickly.
Swellnets saying 4-6ft by mid-week in Sydney.

It's not really the strength of the low I have a beef with; it's the dissipation of the supporting ridge, a constant feature this summer.
That allows the low to speed through the swell window obliquely to the circle paths.
Any one snapshot in time can look stupendous but with the speed of the fetch any swell generating potential is severely duration limited.

You know what I'm saying?

This is a swell that should have a leisurely entree, a massive main course and a long, lingering dessert. Instead we'll probably get a wham bam thank-you mam moment somewhere in amongst a confusing melange of disappointing and fast moving swell pulses.

Current ASCAT passes show a pretty weak and lacklustre tradewind coverage of the central and southern Coral Sea.

yeah I know what you mean, so irritating. If the ridge braces itself against the low, happy days. I think there looks like a hell of a lot of back up SE swell behind it though.

I'm not putting any faith in the end of model runs, but it does look juicy.

Anyhow, was fun as hell here this morning with no one around.

Was shit early Steve, so people probably flagged it. I saw the wind went offshore around 8 but I was in Lissy. Was that a local front?

Just a little glass off wind switch as the morning sickness settled and the tide ran out.

Speaking of morning sickness. As I wandered up the track yesterday, for an apré surf shower, there was a young pregnant lady heaving the contents of her stomach out onto the grass next to the aforementioned shower. I am assuming that she was preggas, there is of course another possibility, maybe she was just fat and hungover.

well God help all the hippie loggers out the Pass. They're about to be washed to Belongil.

shearer's spot is either gonna be all time or just disappear in a cauldron of algae foam, bluebottles, and 12' easterly groundswell

And I'm probably gonna drown.

There could be some serious erosion up here looking around my local this morning. Super high tide, shortish period, Easterly sets and a serious South to North sweep in close.

Might drive to that over popular northern point tomorrow and see if I can get a park.

Now now, it may well have been one of the other options I was referring to.
