Wild surf weather due to TC Ului

The 2 tropical cyclones currently active (Ului – off Townsville/Mackay & Tomas – off Fiji) are affecting the surf on practically all the Qld coast.  Tragically, a younf ironman from Sydney has died at competition at Kurrawa beach.

However, yesterday the southern Gold Coast beaches had a big pumping swell, with waves of about 2m and there were a lot of surfers out.  The swells breaking over the rocks with huge bursts of spray sounded like rolling thunder, and I swear the ground shook a couple of times!
