I found this interesting. I'm having to post it really quickly, because I have a meeting in a few minutes, but check out the link!
My thoughts on the situation: Changes in tidal trends due to rapid changes in localized weather patterns. Localized weather patterns tend to have a
typical trending effect. Example: Extremely dry summer for Colorado = Very wet summer for Texas and the midwest. These trends don't only occur over
land, but over the oceans as well. The problem is that weather trends over the ocean are not readily felt by the common person and since 70% of the
earth is covered in water, not all seemingly small changes are reported to the masses.
The question now is, what is occuring in the South Pacific that could cause these 4m surfs on the Gold Coast? For whatever reason, it seems the tidal
current has shifted just enough for the current to impact the shoreline at a much high degree/angle than it typically would have in past years. Shifts
like this are typical of major tempurature changes in the deep.
