Tide had just passed the 1.4 m high when I grabbed the pictures this morning and as you can see, it looked pretty fat, full …and small. There weren’t any takers that I could see and I’d say it’s around knee to maybe, possibly, waist high up the beach where the metre or so of SSE swell will be a little more focused. Wind should be going north to NE 15-25 kts later, so now is the plan if you can. Tide will be back to the low at 1315, by which time that wind should be well into it.
The models are showing our energy levels hanging around the current subdued levels until Saturday when they continue to show a south pulse in the 2m/10sec range arriving and then fading over the next couple of days.
