Wednesday 24th
Swell was in the 3-4ft range on the Surfcoast, but wasn't lined up yet. Clean conditions with offshore NW wind and it went a bit more WSW later. Some fun waves were had on reefs, was high tide for most of the day.

Thursday 25th
Respect to the ANZACs,  an amazing service at Point Danger with pumping swell as the sun was coming up. Super glassy conditions early. Swell was in the 3-5ft range on the Surfcoast. NW increasing in strength and it tended a bit more west in the arvo. Surfcoast was be the best option with a little bit more swell in the morning. Very crowded due to the public holiday.

Friday 26th
Nice swell again on Friday. Surf was in the 3-4ft range, a bit of westerly wonk on it early. Wind was from the NW early, went a bit more W later in the day. Some fun waves around on the reefs. Swell pulsed in the arvo with some more solid sets coming through on dark.

Saturday 27th
Was the pick of the days, with pumping 4-6ft waves. At first light it was glassy and tubing, and by 7.30 a Northerly had kicked up and was adding a bit of chop to the faces. Bells was better than Winki, and 13th was reportedly very good as well, but everywhere was just not doing it due to the wind. The wind swung more NW in the arvo, and although there were some lulls and crowd, there were pumping waves too.

Sunday 28th
Awoke to light SW wind and a little smaller swell, when it was meant to be bigger. Swell was a little lumped up too, but it improved and built during the day, and there was some fun waves to be had all afternoon. It was the least crowded all week.
