Photos from Tropical Cyclone Lusi
OK, yeah, it's been pumping on the East Coast. The forerunners from Tropical Cyclone Lusi made landfall in Queensland Saturday afternoon. The points at Noosa jumped in size, but more tellingly they jumped in period. As dark fell the waves were thick, well-spaced, and incredibly long-lined. The anticipation was heavy for Sunday.
Daybreak saw cyclone swell from Noosa to the NSW South Coast. Unfortunately for those north of the Mid North Coast the winds played havoc. South of there it was champagne conditions from first light till last. Here's the photographic proof.
If you've got photos from the day send them through to [email protected] If we run them here we'll send you a Swellnet leggy in the post. Check back here as we add more photos.
