Had my first surf in a long time yesterday evening at Long Reef. Very long waits and just on the edge of being surfable for the most part, but there were waves and I was stoked. Contrary to my expectation, there are still waves to be had along those stretches that like a bit of SE swell. I say swell, because the stuff you can catch are most likely the 11 second period sets currently showing in the mix on the MHL buoy data. Sets are into the waist high plus range, so it’s worth a look at your favourite SE swell options.
If the WAMs are to be believed, this could be the peak for the week at most places. The super computers are projecting a week of weakness ahead for us with only tiny, short period windswell out of the easterly quarters. There just doesn’t seem to be any significant energy around right now and the longest range calculations aren’t currently showing anything hopeful. Oh well. Enjoy what we have today and then we’ll just make the best of what comes tomorrow.
Go well with your plans today!
