Saturday tiny style

Posted by: on May 7th, 2016

Hello Friends

At 0500 the MHL buoy was showing a metre of E swell with a period of 11 seconds. So we have about the same energy levels as yesterday at the same time, but the swell’s not coming from the SE. Wind at report time was light and west; it’s set to go north to NE by this afternoon. The morning tide is a high at 0830.

A run around the check out spots revealed healthy crowds in the water at Northy and from Longy to No Mans. Set waves were into the shoulder plus range, although overall I’d call it waist to chest. If you’re keen and patient with your fellow surfers, you should definitely be able to snag a few this morning.

Outlook is very much in line with the Goat’s prediction – according to the models. Wind is set to be northerly through Monday at this stage, while swell should be about the same tomorrow and then up a bit more on Monday. Swell looks like being southerly across the coming week and bit bigger. Magnets could be into the head range on bombs by late in the week. And if the models have it right, we should also be seeing offshores.
