Oh yeah. Fantasy forecasts of it peaking at nearly 14,000kJ next Wed/Thurs and a 10 star rating.

Have all the surf forecasting sites succumbed to false news syndrome? It has been noted by the surf forecasting industry that when large swells are forecast their number of hits (and presumably income) doubles for around two weeks. Are they indulging in accepting somewhat low probability swells to significantly boost their income?

We need a Royal Commission to get to the bottom of this recent trend.

We will have to use paddle boards. It's the only way......unless we use bikes. Nothing under three grand gets over the Spit Bridge.

We can all pile into Loofys Porsche Cayenne for the journey over the Spit.

Oh god! There'll be surfers flying in from all over the world. I'm going fake an illness when it peaks. The Sunday protest on Nick's front lawn is cancelled.

back on planet earth
the ocean was lovely and glassy this morning with what looked like little peelers up and down the beach
close inspection and 30 minutes of paddling up and down the stretch, revealed an swell wilth underlying power of 1.5 joules at 2.5sec

water was warm and clear though
