Challenging conditions for the week ahead

Cronulla is set for a week of waves as the east swell we have been receiving on the back of the onshore winds, keeps on keeping on.

Tuesdays 3-4 ft waves are set to slowly pick up during the week to a 4-6-8 ft peak from the east-nor-east on the weekend with variable winds and changing and challenging conditions.

Thursday morning looks like the pick of the week with the wind promising to blow offshore but mainly we will have nor'easters blowing every day-just like every other summer.

I took a quick trip down the coast yesterday,2 ft and onshore at Cronulla in the morning-Werri was 2-3 ft and offshore and Ulladulla was 4-5 ft and onshore-this is all in a three hour drive.

I took todays pics randomly over the last few days but they do show the average conditions we have been dealt but its still worth getting wet.

The World Surf League has announced the We Are One Ocean campaign by calling for the protection of 30 percent of our one ocean by 2030, or 30x30. The WSL encourages people around the world to join the global movement in support of 30x30 and sign the We Are One Ocean petition at weareoneocean.org.

We Are One Ocean is building support for the 30x30 biodiversity targets designed to protect nature and life on earth, with a specific call to fully and highly protect 30% of the global ocean.

Those who sign the We Are One Ocean petition will be part of a growing international community urging world leaders to adopt 30x30 at an upcoming United Nations Convention where these targets will be decided.

In celebration of We Are One Ocean the WSL will be asking everyone to sign the petition and share a message of love for the ocean over the upcoming Valentine's Day weekend.

The annual Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Awards are open for entries. Attracting all levels of Australian surf photographers and videographers, the Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Awards is an opportunity for creatives to have their work recognised and celebrated on a national platform.

In partnership with Surfing Australia, the awards are open to Australian residents who can submit their best images and videos taken in 2020.

John Young, General Manager, Marketing for Nikon Australia said the Australian surfing community delivers awe-inspiring shots for the Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Awards year after year.

"We are particularly excited to see what they have been able to capture from last year, as they explored inspiration closer to home, capturing Australia's beautiful waves." Young said
