Except for the 20 kilo Spanish mackerel I lost off the stones yesterday.

Thursday and Friday are shaping up to look pretty nuts. 6-8 foot of SE/ESE swell. Must be due for some sick leave.

I've surfed every day since autumn started. Been insane fun waves.

Yep. Will take either the Thursday or Friday off. Will decide by Tuesday based on the forecast. There'll be lots of options down south based on the looks of the forecast.

Thinking the same thing. Missed all weekend and can't surf early this week - i'm not missing this swell or these conditions.

will give get to give this 6'10 puppy it's first run in the 6foot plus region. based on how it went on saturday (cutting like a scalpel through bumpy double overhead peaks) it should eat it up no probs.

Autumn has started beautifully. March has been ultra consistent.

the last one we had when it went for 7 odd years back at the start of this century ... i still remember all kinds of waves. the drought was terrible and had a massive impact on general life, for sure. but wave-wise i still remember a number of full blown swells.

eg: that damon harvey 8-foot wave from outside snapper to little groyne kirra happened bang in the middle of it.

I'm just casting my mind back to 2015 and remember there were quite a few south swells, which would have been good in your neck of the woods. Not so good this side of the border, unless you want to duke it out with 500 people on the points.

this autumn has got me completely flummoxed with respect to the pattern change.

It was supposed to be a La Nina tendency spring/summer and we got record dry conditions and an endless spring. now the pacific looks more like a quasi El Nino and we are in record flood territory.
There seems a complete and total decoupling of actuality from the expected pattern based on pacific basin tendencies.

Hasn't it been fairly classic La Nina except for this Debbie disruption?
