“Victory at sea” type conditions out there this morning with lashing rain, hooking southerly winds and a ginormous swell out of the north-east. Way to wet and wild to get the camera out this morning, so it was lucky I snapped a few pics over the long weekend to get today’s post up and going. The long weekend actually provided plenty of joy for surfers on the mid-north coast, with a nice sized south-east swell which provided some hollow waves in the semi protected southern corners. Saturday was sunny and fun, Sunday was cold and windy (with a few waves) and Monday had atrocious weather with an arvo pulse that was the start of the large north-east swell that is maxing out the entire east coast this morning. Hopefully the rain clears a bit later and I will bring some pictures of this swell in tomorrow’s instalment.. till then stay warm!
Can you believe the “no wetsuit” was actually a viable option only a couple of days ago (Saturday arv, not cold at all)
early Sunday morning was cool blue/grey but low tide beachies were throwing up the odd grinding keg
winter has arrived on the mid north coast
Pete Valentine in the two shots above.. enjoying the last time we saw the sun on Saturday afternoon.. few more pics from town beaches in June so far HERE
The Solitary Islands surf school are not only continuing their surf lessons through winter on the Coffs coast, they are also teaching kids in Darwin to surf. There’s a little kiddie wave pool up there that Harley Ingleby and Darryn Quigley have got on to… check out the big lads surfing finless foamies in the NT below…..
