LIVE testing

New phone with camera. Live updates will be theoretically possible if this works. Keyboard shot in lieu of any waves in my apartment!

Charts Check...

current conditions...
Most for midnight Saturday till Sunday morning, except one which is labeled "current conditions."

Packing a punch: in both hemispheres

The biggest wave ever recorded powered through Tasmanian waters yesterday at a crazy 18.4 metres (yes, metres, not feet!). The same swell is predicted to produce a monster surf in Sydney this weekend. The photo shows Manly this morning as it builds.

Of course, Taiwan itself will also feel some power this weekend, but we'll wait and see if we can get out past the coast guard somewhere as Typhoon Fanapi rumbles across. The east coast was certainly building in strength this morning...
and I just love this shot. The girls are certainly showing the guys how it's done over there...

Be safe!

Small fast and hollow

Pointies was dead flat and had a clubbies carnival about to start. Jinshan number 2 had big fatties out the back pushing onto a bank about 1 foot deep. Dave cracked a stack of fast little barrels and ate a lot of sand! Great fun, a little 1 1/2 hour window before it all filled up again...

Take a number

Not bad out east, but the usual crowd...

Inconvenient Truth

This is right now.......
and this is tomorrow same time. Looks like we're going to miss this swell.

Saturday early has a smallish swell line hovering off the northwest coast, but time will tell.....
