He has studied that coastline more than just about anybody, including photogrammetry and surveys back to the 1880s.

It's also just geometry/geography.

A certain often maligned Mid North Coast Point Break has been receiving the Easterly Swell very nicely for three days. Just turned onshore this morning. Crowds very moderate to small. Pretty surfed out. Sorry for the lack of updates as it's very poor internet reception around here.

Had stinking overnight northerlies for almost a week.
Swell jumped up a bit overnight.
Got a few at that "secret" left that works in northerlies this morning.
Just me and my 50 new best friends.

SECRET! 🤬

Hush.....all the hipsters hanging out of their vans in the parking lot will recognise me. Actually plenty of suitable imaginary beanpoles out in the surf the last few days. It really is hypster Central when theres a swell running. Doesnt effect the rest of town though. Pretty quiet.
Shocked to see Steve’s dial when I checked Coastalwatch this morning. I hope he is going to start including kilojoules in his reports.

Missed your updates on the Bondi Covid queue - apparently police were booking the mums using their phones while waiting in their big SUVs.

Public service....or revenue raising?
Can they book people in the car park or only on the main road line up?

Either way.
If they're lined up and just crawling forward every so often, that's a shit act.
Why not just walk along and say, "put the phone away".

Half the people that cross the tweed cooly border access their permit on their phone while queuing then hold it out the window to show the copper.

You must be the only surfer that telegraphs it further in advance than Medina.

Strong offshore and some east swell around, pumping for the late surf.
