Huge swell protects the crayfish once again.

Well the bunny huggers will be stoked that the buggs arnt getting clubbed!! the swell has finally arrived, after threatening to pull in for over a week. I was amped to surf, but the swell was a little all over the place from the onshore winds yesterday.

 
The swell looks like it will peak some time today and dissipate as the cyclone dies. But don't hold your breath, this will be followed by a fairly strong cold front that will also generate some swell. This is going to be a bit of a muck up as the tides are high in the morning next week, so the waves for surfing wont be epic. And the swell looks like it will be to big to dive in.
 
I guess my running shoes are going to get some more time!!
 
Here is the short term forecast, interesting stuff!!
