North Avoca, 2016
The largest swell to hit the east coast of Australia in over 15 years saw once in a lifetime conditions for surfers from Queensland right through to Tasmania. Initially, the violent storms, high winds and king tides saw devastation all along the east coast. Waves crashed over cliff faces and houses were washed off the beachfront in Sydney. Once the storm abated however, surfers were treated to the cleanest, largest swell in living memory.
