Hello Friends,

The east coast of Australia continues to slumber as a weak 0.5 metre east windswell laps ashore from Eden to Byron Bay. No surfing today, that’s for sure.

The swell forecast models continue to show flat to just barely breaking for today and tomorrow with a slight chance of something in the knee to waist high range on Friday when we might get a NW wind – east windswell combo. Happily, they’re also saying we might get a brief pulse into the surfable range on Monday when at least some of the interpretations are saying we could have some shoulder high south swell. The very long range projections show a sizable but short lived south pulse mid next week. Unfortunately they also reckon it’ll be accompanied by strong SE wind. But that’s a long way out, so I wouldn’t be marking it down in the diary just yet.

Have yourself a top old day!
