A lot of people out and about frothing over this swell this morn, but it's four foot and onshore. Looks pretty powerful but.
Just need the wind to go more sth.

From the Goldy today. If you go to 1:02:50, there's a pretty epic barrel.

And the jet ski step off guy immediately before him does an epic barrel dodge.

That'd be Brenno Dorrington in the epic barrel.

I dunno who did the step off but I don't think he dogged anything, that section collapsed and he couldn't get around it. Probably more a case of Shit Board Syndrome.

I don't understand this swell, or lack of, yet. Did the dawn run on Saturday, DY barely breaking and Manly really inconsistent. Flagged it for the early and hit it just adter midday. Saw a few rogue 5 footers but really a consistent and comfortable 4 foot. Sunday, felt like the south swell was bigger than anticipated and south facing beaches had a few overhead ones coming through.

This morning Swellnet saying Coffs and Port Mac regions are 8 foot or so but Sydney this morning was smaller than all weekend and no sign of any increase by lunch.

Well crescent is 4 ft for the most part. Every now and then there's a 6+ set

Does anyone know of a surf report website that “didn’t” get the forecast for southern NSW so appallingly wrong ?

Pulsed at 6-8 for 1 hour down here Steve. Including a 15-20wave set where every wave was whitewater from the tip of the point to the Bommie.

Well the one I went to this morn was 6 foot + out the back. Possibly the same one Wyre is talking about,got a few good ones but missed the early low and it got swallowed by the tide.
Probably was pumping outside of high.

Fiji looks like it’s copping some swell. Very tasty piccies doing the rounds.
