Pambula again.
I know a guy who got heavied by locals he knew down there for exposing the break back in the 80s. He had got a photo he took of the rivermouth going off framed and displayed on his wall. A visiting surf photographer took a photo of the photo and published it in a surf mag.

I know, I hate for the poor bugger to face a Spanish inquisition over his home breaks.

You think Pambula is some undercover spot? In 2020?

Nah, just pointing out how times have changed....young fella.
Bull shark just cleared the surf at Crescent. 2 mtrs and about 200 metres off shore according to the chubbies with the drone.
Nice conditions but very small and not worth losing a leg for.

Come on Trev, they usually attack from behind. You hang ten on the front, safest place on the board.

Sharks are simple creatures, like league players.

I was reading about some league player who was about to marry some hot girl but was busted texting a young staffer at the club.

Definitely tempting, one bloke started going out after we all came in. For some reason his bravado seemed to slip and he went out down the end near the creek rather than up the point where everyone had been. I missed the only good wave to come through before a clubbie with a loudhailer came up to tell us. Funny watching a crew of mal riders scamper onto the rocks on mass.

Well since 9am today it’s been at 295-315 degrees with a 28-41 degree spread. Yesterday was more like 250 degrees with a 14-28 degree spread. Hope that helps
????

Everything from 230 westwards looks completely cock-blocked by Ireland to me.

Any photos?

I make the southern tip of Ireland about 360 k's from Llangennith, and its definitely south of due west.

does it wrap in ?
I just ride the waves steve, I have no interest where they come from

All that info is from the cefas wavenet site. It gives you swell, period, direction, spread and water temp for each buoy and even a five day forecast for most of them

There ya go http://wavenet.cefas.co.uk/Map

OK, so if the M3 buoy has a peak wave period of 13.7 and the South P buoy has a peak Period of only 8.3 then it must be mostly windswell from the Celtic Sea?

Just help a brother out here.

There’s an afternoon recap of the Langland cam if you’re interested in what it was like there yesterday. Click on the horizontal lines top right of the image to change from live to the recap https://www.gowerlive.co.uk/webcams/langland-webcam/
