Howling SouEast Wind, tons of swell. Looking really ugly on the Eastern Beaches. Nielsen Park had one lone SUP rider floundering around. Manly Ferry was getting pumped crossing the heads.
Apparently there was a bull shark out at Bondi at 2:45 as well. Didn't think they liked wild surf conditions.

Big long period swell kicking in,, lulls big enough to read a full description of a Steve Shearer surf.

Meanwhile I am hiding down the south end of Manly on low tide (due to other duties)....on these days I apply my motto of knowing one's level of incomptenence

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.
