Cyclones are good for surfers.

Category 3 Tropical Cyclone Ola formed off New Caledonia and headed to the South Pacific. Around 1000 km off the coast it produced some great surf conditions as it weakened to a low depression, lucky this one did not reach any land.

Snapper Rocks was packed with surfers and those who managed to weave their way through the pack got some great rides. I saw many near misses but no one got speared by a board and it looks like many just jumped on a wave regardless of surfers already on it.
