For those of you getting up for the early, here’s what I reckon…
Huey’s plan is to blow the milk out of your coffee Saturday morning. There’s a gale warning for N-NW winds and that, combined with a weakening SE swell of a metre or so, should result in small to near flat conditions. Hard to get too hopeful…
However, while Sunday’s not looking all that exciting (er flat), by Monday we could have another south pulse with offshores.
Have a great evening and catch you again tomorrow!
