Just spent a couple of days at Moffat beach on the sunny coast. Saturday morning I got the final dregs of the cyclone swell. It was about 5 foot on the sets. Here's a couple I got. GoPro never does the swell size any justice... Unless the footage is of Jaws or Nazare

Moffs is my local break its a fun wave hey. I went down yesterday to catch the incoming tide and remaining swell. Was a fun session. Wish I had the chance to get out Saturday.

You're a lucky guy. Wife and I are seriously considering relocating up there. What time were you out there? I was out from 5:30 am to 7:00

I was down there from 8-11. I usually try to avoid it at low tide as it breaks close to the rocks. Seemed good yesterday though at low.

Moffs is a cracker winter spot being protected from the Southerly winds..

You're right, those GoPros suck the fun out of a good session if you let them... The number of times I have been out in sizeable waves, well overhead, in challenging conditions, and then GoPro makes it look like a walk in the park...

When you say 5', is that Hawaiian 5' or they were almost head high? Just curious.

The waves looked great though. Perfect conditions. I am jealous...

Well the bigger sets were a fair bit over head high. So call that what you will.

Missed out on the lot, at bloody work. My boy was out though, his first surf after snapping his tibia end of last year. Made sure he told me allllllll about it to, cheeky bugger.
I would hazard a guess no one drops in on you Zeusman? Ever?
