Far out, I think it is already starting to come through. Gonna be a fun couple of days! I'm dearly hoping a good night's sleep will help my back heal and quick. Compressed it on a nothing wave today that collapsed on me.

Northern crew, how's it going up there?

I worked in tweed all day. Checked snapper at 7.30pm. Some nuts waves, only one guy out back. Then it went wide so the rest of cooly was a reform.
Didn’t check kirra. If I had time I probably would have had a crack at the bombie bank rights and lefts on a gun, snapper itself a bit heavy and critical.

The sweep at snapper looked like hell this afternoon on the cams while this morning it seemed non existent.

Easy 10ft sets at some beaches at lunchtime. Pretty out of control. Some outer reefs looked interesting. Some I hadn’t ever seen before.

Yep, very solid. Not many options, it is absolutely heaving out there!

Surfed the point which had some good ones. Not as big there. Crowded, for sure.

Gonna hit a certain big left near me tomorrow morning, with my big old 7'2" 1990's gun.

A few guys jumping off the North Side of Maccas to paddle out and dodge big messy lumps rolling gradually around to Bronte which was one big dredgy close out. Water looked filthy. Waves were sectiony but only breaking halfway down the face so the more capable were stringing a few sections together. Looked like a mal would have handled it better.

Yep. Manly had a massive peak breaking way out in front of the pub. Broke way further out than I've ever seen it break before, from the beach it nearly looked to peak in line with Shelley. Looked potentially rideable if you could get out to it and you had the nuts to have a crack.

I've seen that break a few times when I was out at The Bower. No way I wanted to be anywhere near it.

Around 10am a lifeguard on a rescue board was out on up near that wave mid Manly - it sure was big. He caught one and got smashed on another for a long swim in. The wave looked like a great left hander but everyone I saw seemed to be all under gunned.

Dawn session at south end Maroubra. Easily paddle out. Six to eight foot. Plenty of water moving. Tricky conditions, hard to position, but some screamers coming through. Only 3 out

Dropped off nicely for me. Scored some cranking lefts at the deep water bommie near me. On my Outer Islands 6'1", which is such a good paddler.

Apparently point is off it's head

Great to hear you guys on the east coast are scoring big time
