If the wind drops on the low tide tomorrow night it could be one of those surfs that makes it worth living here.

Late shift cronulla point. Some screamers but lots of wind and scratching around to contend with. Head and half high and bigger. Tonnes of swell out on the merries reefs.

Cronulla point is sheltered. Look at google earth. Merries reefs looked to be eight to ten feet or bigger.

In Warrnambool tonight. Nothing much yet. We so often get bigger swells that aren't hyped online

It's biggish not massive. Lots of movement in the water and windy as Fcuk. Guys were surfing Bronte. Pretty ordinary though.

Cronulla Pt is heavily shaded from south swells.

It's solid as here today. Nothing but groundswell. Cleaner, but smaller than yesterday though. That southerly wind is hanging in! Fcuken impressive effort for mid January.

Gonna scare myself on a beachie.

The Alley - heaps of fun on the 8-0, jagged 2 set waves early on
started to fill up a bit with the tide but some solid sets still

Clean up set at Lennox. You can see the bloke just behind the first wave. He had been sitting out the furthest for the last hour on a very big board. He had been knee paddling so you know it was big, and it even looked like a huge board from the carpark. Didn't see him realistically paddle for any waves though.

2nd shot shows where he bailed his board only to snap his leggy. A bloke down near brocky's saved it and waited for him.
Sorry about the shit quality from my phone. :)

i was thinking of doing the same yesterday. however some of those inside bowls up greenhills looked like total backsnappers. shifty shutdowns mostly. probably ok for a windsurfer with no regard for safety or life.

mid-lengths are the tits out at the alley, drawing big lines covering ground down the line as it passes across the bar before linking through to laceys.

Alley at dawn on a 6'11" tracker single, first paddle in three weeks after a shoulder injury, snagged a set wave and made it past the lifeguard tower at Laceys, so went in, shoulder seems OK!! :B

Almost breaking a left hander into Gordon's Bay from Clovelly Car Park. One lid rider out at the Bombie but it looked crap. Quite a few out at the Bra which was missing most of the swell but closing out 50% of the time or more.

Thats Rusty Miller, he was coming in down the Bream Hole as I was going out.

A humbling experience he said. Not bad for a bloke in his 70's.

For scale, you can see the shark listening buoy clearly in the background and that thing is a half K off the Point.
