Little waves at focal points

Posted by: on May 27th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Happy to report that there’s a bit more activity this morning than I expected. It’s pretty much focused in the central to north ends of the beaches I looked at. Biggest sets were producing wave faces into the chest high range but mostly it was more in the waist high range on the catchable ones at spots like Northy or the Pole.
Next tide is a 1.6m high at 0925 and it’ll be back to low at 1510.
Wind should be light and variable this morning before settling into the northerly quarters.
The good news is that the current conditions in terms of swell (it was a metre at 10 seconds from the SE with a little NE component bending it in to east exposures at 0500)
Outlook is for these conditions more or less to continue for the coming week. So, nothing spectacular wave-wise that I can see on the models, but it shouldn’t fade out completely – and if the Bureau’s estimates are correct, there’s a possibility of something interesting at the end of the week. Might be an idea to shuffle the calendar for Thrs-Fr…
Have a great Saturday!
