Mountainous surf

12:14 AEST Massive waves reaching nearly 6 metres impacted the NSW coast on Sunday, with damaging waves continuing to impact the central coastline on Monday.  A Tasman Low is behind mammouth southeasterly swell along the eastern seaboard and it’s not going anywhere fast, with the large waves set to continue until mid-week.  The satellite images below show cloud swirling in a clockwise direction around the Tasman Low just to the northwest of New Zealand.
