South of J Bay the wind swung NE in the afternoon, complimenting a neat 3ft plus pulse of long range Sth swell. A Tim Bonython short.

Surf conditions in NSW have generally been above average so far this spring. Maximum temperatures have been slightly below average whilst rainfall has been above average. In the last 10 days though, since the Nov 3 standout session it has been slim pickings pretty much right up and down the NSW coast.

Conditions more typical of this time of the year have prevailed. Top temps in the mid to high 20’s, coupled with the early onset of NE sea breezes, weak short-lived southerly fronts and afternoon thunderstorms have been commonplace. Wave heights have been a lazy 1-3ft at best, generally out of the ENE.

Last weekend senior Coastalwatch contributor Tim Bonython slipped down the south coast of NSW and lucked into one of those fleeting long period south pulses that barely penetrate north of Jervis Bay.

Whilst Sydney and surrounds were plagued by persistent onshore ESE winds and a combo of short range 2-3ft ENE and ESE windswell on Saturday November 6, South of J Bay the wind swung NE in the afternoon, complimenting a neat 3ft plus pulse of long range Sth swell, allowing for clean options at various south facing options.

Sunday Nov 7 was beach break bliss right up and down the coast. The swell was only small, but morning offshores, sunshine a fun sized 2-3ft SE swell preceded freshening afternoon NE sea breezes. Tim and his crew reveled in southern NSW, away from suburban crowds and out of the NE wind. – Ben Horvath.
