A hazardous surf warning will remain in place through Monday, 13 June, as the east coast cops a battering from huge swells averaging about five or six feet but potentially reaching up 16 feet or 5 metres in south-exposed locations.
The Bureau of Meteorology, who issued the warning, said conditions were caused by a low pressure system over the Tasman Sea. Swellnet has potential surf of over 10 feet from tomorrow morning with surf to remain strong through to Tuesday.
Very heavy surf is expected through Sunday afternoon and is likely to last into Monday morning. Wave heights may exceed 5m at south exposed locations with possible coastal damage and erosion and beach conditions will be extremely dangerous.

Local photographer Neil Thompson Rees captured these images of the waves hitting the rockpool at North Curl Curl today, 12 June 2022, also capturing another photographer, Simon Clayton, who was standing above on the rocks at the time. We will update this thread with more images as we receive them.
