Late mail: junky but fun size

Posted by: on April 17th, 2011

Hello Friends,

Sorry about that. The server decided to stop serving at early this morning and it took me some time to figure out what needed doing. There are waves to be had, but they’ve been very junky thus far today. After peaking late last night, the SE swell is pushing in at around 2 metres with an average period of 9 seconds (and the odd 11 second bomb). Wind is SE at around 10-15kts which is in line with the forecast for decreasing strength. As the wind backs off, the swell is set to do the same. Given how it looks and the forecast, I’d say it’ll continue very messy and junky, but be surfable for the rest of today and that there might still be a little something left for the early risers tomorrow.

Low tide’s at around 1320 today, so this afternoon could get some benefit from the incoming tide.

Outlook for the rest of the week is not too flash it has to be said. The models are pretty bleak for the east coast. Looks as though there’ll be some energy down at Bells as the week goes along and next weekend could be pretty punchy…

Have yourself a great Sunday!
