There’s a dream day out there somewhere. A day when all of Australia’s 15,000-ks-plus of surfable coastline cranks as one.

Imagine how fried we’d all be! Imagine how many barrels would be ridden, how many broken boards would be sworn at, how many dings would have to be fixed. Imagine the half-empty classrooms and the hit to national Gross Domestic Product. Imagine the overall stoke.

This past weekend wasn’t quite the dream. But wow, she came pretty close. While a big slab of south-west groundswell poured on to WA’s reefs. a less sizey yet profoundly welcome series of long and short range east swells ranged up and down the Queensland and NSW coasts, softly machine-gunning everywhere from Noosa to Bermagui.

On Saturday, Snapper got its sand back. On Sunday, North Point handed out some deep ones (and some hidings). And on Monday, a thick hit of ENE swell from a re-energised tropical low gave central NSW surfers more than just a taste of what, till then, they’d pretty much been forced to watch on cam.

FOR THE BIG WRAP ON THIS THREE DAY BENDER, GO TO OUR SPLENDID NEW HOME AT SURFLINE.
