Lots of quality surf expected with E then S swells and mostly offshore windsPremium content for Swellnet Pro subscribers

This anchored trough fetch, or trough block pattern is favourable for swell production for almost the entire Eastern Seaboard and will come with mostly offshore winds until the weekend brings a more S’ly biased flow to temperate NSW. We’ll see remnants of a small low at the terminus of the trough get captured over the weekend and generate S swells from the return flow of a regenerated low.

Fun lunchtime sesh today, nice peaky waves with light winds, almost empty lineup too. Now pissing down with a small but intense cell in the far NE corner of the state.

Drove through that cell on the way home from Bribie.
Few 3ft sets here on dark with a really weak seabreeze on it.

10 times as many people now as when I was growing up there.
Still ,mostly national park so easy to find space in nature and the Passage is still amazing.

Not wrong, spent my high school years there in the late 90s.

Great place to grow up (despite the waves - unless went up the beach), glad I left though

FR76 Did you know Phil (?) Nitschke the shaper from Bribie? I surfed in the late 80's with his son Ben for a few years out of Caloundra.

Pretty pumped for this weekend! Just really hoping it’s not all close outs up here on the SC. Fingers crossed.

Unfortunately this. Even putting the O in **O** hasn't helped. Will be avoiding sand.

Have any of the SC crew noticed how terrible the Coolum Bays have become since the La Niña summers began in 2020-21? There’s plenty of sand there now, but for the most part it’s always a dog’s breakfast. I’ve struggled to workout why. One thing I have observed is that even though there is sand there now, there isn’t actually a true beach like there used to be prior to the erosion wrought by those aforementioned summers. The high water mark frequently comes up to the base of the cliffs/steep embankment, making the beach behave as though the sea level were 10-20cm higher than it used.

I wouldn't expect any major increase but there should be 3ft sets easy.
Winds SW.

Looking really nice this morning. Just a little more on the top end.
Swell has a wonderful building feel to it.

Oddly better, bigger and more consistent with the tide going out before low at 6:30 where I was. 3ft sets at best. Got out at 8:30, definitely no size increase that I saw. If anything it felt like it got smaller. Wave buoy seems to agree. Fun morning all the same.

Got out a first light, surfed until 7. Tide too low really but a couple, should be good about now I reckon. Not really bigger than yesterday at same time.
Beautiful sunrise and early morning glow.
Fingers crossed for tomorrow and Sunday!

What's with the RIB running very close through the line up at Greeny? Definitely a bit more energy that yesterday morning
