Please have a look at this:
you can see the systems of the two eyes.
A CATEGORY five cyclone is charging across the Coral Sea towards North Queensland.
Tropical cyclone Ului is now southeast of the Solomon Islands after building rapidly from a category three on Saturday to a category five on Sunday morning.
Queensland's Bureau of Meteorology says the cyclone is packing wind gusts of up to 290km/h.
Cyclone is moving 15km an hour and can land in NQ on Wednesday.
You're going to need a smaller kite.
Thats 2 big systems. I would be a bit nervous on a boat up there. But then I guess there will be plenty of swell down the coast.
time to replace that scuffed up trim rope that doesn't lock real well I reckon.
that should be bringing a heap of swell
Thats huge - me thinks yall gonna get Spanked - twice
Pull out the trainer kite!
surf reports anyone?
the two systems are moving fast.
seems like the first one is going slightly NW and the second one a bit more SW cld travel towards SE Qld.
Swell, rain and lots of wind guaranteed..
The second system is called "Thomas" and will be all over Fiji by the looks..
For anyone interested, the weather "Geeks" are frothing over Severe Tropical Cyclone Ului. Up to page 78 and counting... forum.weatherzone.com.au/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=843062&page=78
I think we might have to tie some plastic bags to our bar and lines and kite with them yewwww lol.
hula is pumping with some very clean waves wrapping around the reef points. not much wind yet but that will change next week.....
Can someone tell the little fella (huulaa ) he needs 2 move away from the swimmers
Keahi where's the best spot gonna be on the Sunny coast for this one - I've heard Teatree can hold up to 12 foot ok but what's gonna work with wind+waves up there?
Who else is keen for a Saturday session on the Sunny coast?
send us some waves up this way please :)
wanna see some footage guys!
Has me wondering how far off the mark the BOM may be for the weekend?
