Yeah, that last S swell blunted a few sharp banks... but there's still some good ones around.

V interesting setup ahead, hints of a baby black nor-easter.

Lots of E swell inbound.

i fear it's too much swell, and a bank busting clusterfuck is in the midsts.

Very south swell. Bronte was holding if anyone could get out....but no one looked like trying. Lurline Bay was Fcuking ginormous in the sets with six guys out and sitting wide. Huge set came through and snorted everyone. One guy snapped his board and then had a very dodgy paddle into the rocks. Still trying to get in when we left. It's dodgy getting in there at the best of times. He spent about fifteen minutes going nowhere once he got anywhere near the rock shelf after a fairly long and slow paddle. Hope he is fit.

you left him there without offering assistance and making sure he got in safely?

Saw one of those helicopter rescue shows a while back with surfers stuck outside in Lurline Bay.
I curse their head & all the hairs of their head; I curse their face, their brain, their mouth, their nose, their tongue, their teeth, their forehead, their shoulders, their breast, their heart, their stomach, their back, their womb, their arms, their legs, their hands, their feet & all their body, from the top of their head to the soles of their feet, before and behind, within and without

There was a helicopter there plus quite a few onlookers.....and of course his six mates. Someone jumped in to paddle out near him. They didn't seem too concerned. Watched it for a while though and contemplated calling the ambos. I guess it's no heavier than Ours like that though. He wasn't waving at the chopper or asking for assistance as far as I could see. About the biggest I've seen Lurline break.

I remember a few years ago a bunch had to tie there boards together and try to make it to Coogee. About five klms away.
