We present computations with a two-dimensional depth-averaged process-based model to hindcast the observed morphological evolution at Palm Beach, NSW, Australia during an approximately 2-week period including sandbar straightening and subsequent rip-channel evolution. The model, which includes the effect of surface rollers, wave asymmetry, wave groups and long-wave induced sediment stirring, reproduced the trend in the observed variability, but not its magnitude.
