Does anyone know of a surf report website that “didn’t” get the forecast for southern NSW so appallingly wrong ?

Pulsed at 6-8 for 1 hour down here Steve. Including a 15-20wave set where every wave was whitewater from the tip of the point to the Bommie.

Well the one I went to this morn was 6 foot + out the back. Possibly the same one Wyre is talking about,got a few good ones but missed the early low and it got swallowed by the tide.
Probably was pumping outside of high.

Fiji looks like it’s copping some swell. Very tasty piccies doing the rounds.

Woo, winds out near NZ are stronger than last week, 30-40 knots blowing straight back at us.

Let's see if the forecasters go this one.

Well sayonara to the worst summer the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney has seen in many a long day. I've had fun here and there ......usually there rather than here.
Autumn allready looking better.

pretty good summer here.

Really high quality uncrowded E swell through the beginning/middle of Dec.

Shithouse XMas/New year and into the start of Jan.

Big, winter calibre S swell second week of Jan- 10 foot.
Lots of different swells through end of Jan and into Feb including TC Fehi.
TC Gita swell in Feb.

I'd give it a 7.5/10.

0/10 for me as I only had my first surf since Nov on Saturday.* Contrary to Rustt, excellent conditions prevailed at Gunnamatta. Scored a couple of good ones, but paddle fitness had totally deserted me. Rip fcuked me over a few times

* Same argument, still summer

Nah, it is what it is. Felt good to wear a shortjohn and thin vest. Gunna buy a good 3/2 and try it with the shorty through winter. 4/3 is getting too hard. Besides, I can't get out of the chest zip without assistance

Got a barely worn 4/3 Excel top of the range for sale if anyone is interested

Size LS. Pretty much the same fit as RC
