Grey and glassy morning

Posted by: on February 18th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Small south swell showing this morning and although skies were overcast, the wind was light and if you were in the right spot you could score a waist high set – or better.

The wind should come up soon though. According to the Bureau, we should see 15-20 kts of NE’r later this morning. So, south swell/NE wind spots that don’t mind high tide are your best shot.

Tomorrow the NE’r is expected to be going harder and the swell is set to have backed off overnight. So it may be kinda marginal. From around Thursday onward though it still looks like we should see a generally rising trend in swell energy levels, but the wind outlook isn’t too good – more S to SE stuff basically. I reckon there could be a few early morning opportunities.

Very long range forecasts are shaping up pretty nicely – at least in terms of the ambient swell energy. Now, if only the wind will cooperate…

Have a top old Tuesday!

Tides: H @1110, L @1620

Fun peak up the beach at 0745.
