Little lines hint at something surfable

Posted by: on June 22nd, 2016

Hello Friends,

Light NNW wind and swell coming from the SSW as Wednesday got underway along the beaches. In the middle of the night the MHL buoy was showing close to 2 metres at 11 seconds, but the swell angle and the wind are combining to keep the energy away from us. That said, there was a person hanging out at the point a little after 0700 when I grabbed the pics and they did catch a little waist high bump that ran a respectable distance. Up the beach you could see the lines in the ocean, but I’d be surprised if it was any bigger than the point on the sets. Tide’s heading into the high at 0930.
The Bureau’s call is for the wind to be strong again today but it’ll be coming from the west to NW, so there is that.
The models are still showing not much of interest until Saturday. If anything, they project a further weakening of energy levels between now and then.
Saturday currently looks interesting on many of the models. Swell’s expected to be coming from the south at 3 metres at around 10-12 seconds along with WSW wind in the 20-30kt range. Should be sunny as well. It looks like Sunday will be smaller but still above the 2 metre mark, plus the wind should be lighter and still offshore. With luck it’ll stay that way into Monday…
Have yourself a top old Wednesday one and all and keep on smilin’!
