Grey skies to start – again. Surf conditions are distinctly marginal. In fact, we’re getting closer to flatness. The MHL data is showing 1.5 metres of 8 sec period east windswell, so there could be the odd waist high set at the exposed locations.
Wind is supposed to swing around to the NE this afternoon and to kick up to 20-25 kts. That could possibly improve the chances of getting something a bit bigger. Of course, being windswell, it’ll be biggest where it’s most onshore and smallest where it’s most protected.
Not spectacularly exciting, but tomorrow is currently looking as though it will be even smaller.
Have yourself a top old day and keep on smilin’
