Glassy early

Posted by: on September 25th, 2018

Hello Friends,

At 0700 the weather radar was showing showers just off the coast when I took the pictures this morning. Down at the beach it was looking smooth and glassy with the occasional waist plus wave face just north of the club. There was one person at the point chasing soft and weak looking knee plus sets. A couple of hours earlier the MHL buoy was seeing 2 metres of 10-sec SSE (158°) swell. Tide hits a moderate 1.5 m high at 0815 and will be low again at 1415. Ocean temperature is around 18C.

The Bureau tells us to expect the wind to go east but only to get into the 10 kt range. Swell should stick around for the next three days and the models continue to predict a long period (15-17 sec) pulse on Thursday.

Have a top old Tuesday everyone!

Just into the surfable range at 0700
