“midds (Middleton Beach Albany WA)
Only wave at midds is on an east swell - generated by a high press in the
Great Australian Bight - wind swell.
The point gets a waves on a severe weather incidence every 10years
generated by a cut-off low pressure that is mostly south/south east.
Most swell at midds are SSW and too straight to create any kind of ridable
wave.
Beach is presently closed with Australia's biggest white pointer (tagged) and dead whale . Very disappointing summer”
