That sort of storm would bring Kirra into the equation

Looks more like a Noosa system to me. Maybe north of Noosa

Can't see the image, but I was surprised at how much the sand has changed at Kirra recently

I saw this in MP's shop during the Ola swell and couldn't help myself.
Of course it dropped as soon as I got my sweaty mitts on it but it looks like I might be able to christen it real soon.

AB made the most beautiful surfboards ... I miss his presence in the lineup.

You can still get a Burning Spear ... fantastic sticks ... made by a student to the master and a close family member. Do it.

I think this will be complete shit. Nothing but chaotic unrideable storm surf, flooding and erosion, with murky water for days after the event.
All it's going to do is ruin a potentially good run of trade wind swell. #*! :-?
