Sunday and the swell hasn’t given up

Posted by: on March 27th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Our amazing run of swell continued into Sunday morning. At 0500 it was SE and close to 2 metres at 11 seconds. When I checked at 0730 wave faces at the point were into the head and a bit range (see pics) on the sets. The crowd was on it of course. Yesterday the beach was about the same size as the point, but the shutdowns were far more plentiful than the makeable ones. As the Goat predicted, some of those sets packed a fair amount of oomph and I’d expect that’ll be the same today too.
Tide was low at 0530 and will be full at 1130.
Wind was SSW and light as of 0800, but the Bureau says it’ll pick up a touch and come around to the e-se later.
The good news is that the swell models are predicting only a slight decline over the next three days. Thursday’s looking windy from the south but Friday could see lighter winds again with some little short period bumps.
Have yourself a great Easter Sunday everyone!
