Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: strong breeze Swell Direction: SE Swell Size: shoulder high Tide: Low - Rising.

Wednesday's wild windy big short range swell has done some further sandbank reshaping at Longreef. The new banks, low tide, and S-SE swell combined nicely to create really fun 3 foot waves (plus or minus) at various banks along the beach. There was a fairly strong cross to offshore wind making the surface a little lumpy but no real dramas - the waves were great. The water is still fairly warm, so even in a coolish breeze I was nice and toasty warm in my steamer.

The waves were breaking a fair way out, then they'd peter out half way to shore, but there was ample opportunity for a nice drop and a few slowish turns on both right and left handers. I started out near the pole, then towards the end of my session let myself drift up the beach after a few right hand waves. The waves weren't as good near the lagoon but it was time to come in anyway.

Another really great, fun session. Gotta love Autumn in Sydney!
