Sydney - metro
On Saturday afternoon Sydney and the NSW South Coast was hit by the largest swell of the year thus far. The swell was the byproduct of an intense Tasman low that formed off the NSW South Coast overnight on Friday. The low deepened rapidly into Saturday morning, driving a broad fetch of southerly gales parallel to the southern NSW coast. By mid-afternoon 8-10ft of swell was impacting every south swell magnet from Sydney to Ulladulla - exactly as per the forecast
Jeremy Wilmotte, the regular foot in these shots, surfed this reef for six hours bagging a bunch of great rides before the wind turned too south rendering it unridable.
