Continual NE wind, out of 10 surfs only one was good.

Rename this thread Bummer.

I’ve still been surfing twice a week just to stay sane. Aside from a couple of semi pulses of mixed in south swell here and there it’s been well below ordinary. Can’t remember the last decent swell we’ve had down here.

Pumping NE winds from 9-10am.
1-2 foot junk. The odd small pulse.
Deja vu all over again.

I am Victorian :)

Anyway, I've hunted out decent waves for the most part this whole summer on the FNC, including today.

I have been missing a decent groundswell with a true offshore morning though.

I might be Victorian but I've only surfed westernport once, and that was on a mal at the pines.

With all the baby boomers and their grandkids I'll bet :lol:

Truth be known that place can get pretty big maybe a couple of times a year. I've surfed pines when the swell was cresting over the outer boat markers (would have been 3 metre swell on average) in the dead of winter in a storm and it's pretty amazing.

But there are much better places than there in Westernport, Second Reef and Honeysuckle which are all near the Pines and down at Flinders/Cape Schank way

Nah mate I actually forgot about this till I just read your post!

Funny enough I may end up at Pines next week, according to Swellnet because now I decided to pay there is some big swell coming

Massive storm came through yesterday evening. I watched it coming from the attic for a while. A big band of low heavy cloud with spectacular sheet lightening underneath. Pretty big dump of rain.

I mean, tastebuds? WGAF?
