That's an ordinary forecast! At least down here they lie and make out there will be some surf... You need to get a long board (and stick for the crocs)!

SurfLine's still producing accurate forecasts up here.
Absolutely stunning mornings though... you can see how a 14' Search would be sweet for these days.
(if you squint hard enough you can see Indo)


Sacrificing small animals in public tends to be frowned on these days.
So, in some sort of half-baked attempt to inspire Huey to start cranking up the swell machine - I took the Flow out.
Possibly the first time a Flow has been used as a flat water stick.
I'm certain Huey will be pleased though- the big fella will crank some waves next week for sure.

I think my quasi-voodoo, swell-making, flat-water Flow dance has worked.
The Top End just got rocked by a 5.3 magnitude quake that hit Papua. Buildings were wobbling all over the joint. Nothing serious but had the local peeps running for the exits!
Now, I've just gotta wait for a little bit of swell to push through...
Good on ya Huey - yr alright.

Bad news. I am down near tardy and they often do the reverse. Ive had three flawless 3-4 4-5 foot barrel days on the mid north coast that were forecast as flat. I rocked up at super tubes, after the forecast was strong off shore winds for 3 days. The wind had blown the waves down in town. 3-4 foot sets running 100 metres at super tubes. Just me and two mates out. Thanks coastal watch for that one. Usually happens late winter with cold water coming through. August to early September. Harder now with all the retirees. But if you drive a little its still easy to get midweek perfection without too much problem. Helps with a flat surf report.
