In the wake of the recent east coast low that rattled the coast, there has been some of the best waves in years. From Monday through to today (Wednesday) the conditions have been amazing and i've witnessed some of the biggest waves of my life. 

Monday had enormous waves with only a few tow-in teams riding anything and it was great to watch. Tuesday afternoon was still solid with surfers having to dodge some sizey sets rolling through. I saw some insane waves ridden at North Avoca. Today was slightly smaller and more manageable, with more people in the water and great conditions continuing.

With the forecast looking good for a few more days, and having already taken so many shots, i'll be splitting them up into a few blog posts so stay tuned! See below for shots from Monday/Tuesday.
