I might have thrown a jinx over the surf today. Swimming around this morning all I could see was potential - 3-4ft of lumpy, peaky, punchy swell wobbling in from the NE. With the bureau calling for a change to offshore winds and the tide dropping til noon I might have gotten a little excited. On swimming out at noon the weather was brewing and 10minutes into my swim the wind swung Nor-East and it all went pear.
But the good news is a major storm front just passed over Sydney and that may have changed the wind for good. Don't listen to me - go check for yourself.
