Windy and small to tiny

Posted by: on August 27th, 2018

Hello Friends,

15-20 kt of southerly under darkly overcast skies as the day got started. Couldn’t see anyone in the water from the crow’s nest at 0650 either. As the pictures confirm, swell conditions are pretty ordinary.

The point and kiddies at 0650 – not good.

As of 0500, the MHL buoy was seeing 1.9 metres of 6-sec chop from the SSE (156°). The Bureau says the swell should be coming up into the 2.5-3 metre range this morning. The Eden buoy popped up into the 2.4 metre range as of 0400, but the average period was still less than 8 seconds. So, only a slight hope for an improvement in that direction today.

The wind should back off and swing more SW over the next 24 hours but I’m only cautiously hopeful that we’ll see any improvement to surf prospects unless that period stretches out into the 10-second range. Some of the models are showing the period improving tomorrow, but there is more consensus about Weds afternoon through Thursday morning when the expectation is that we could see 2+ metres at 12 seconds from the SSE in combination with nice weather and light SW-SSW wind.

Our first tide today is a 1.4 m high at 0845 and then we’ll be back to a 0.43 m low at 1430. On Thursday morning when we’re hoping for the swell to pulse up, the high will be a moderate 1.48 m at 1040.

Have a great Monday everyone!
