Waves to be had on Wednesday morning

Posted by: on January 9th, 2019

Knee high at the point and waist plus on the beach at 0630

Bomb set 0630

A few little lines up toward No Mans

Hello Friends,

At 0630 there were clean little waves showing along the beach and even occasionally at the point. Sets were up to chest high, but for the most part I’d call it knee to waist with plusses. Wind early was WNW 6-7 kts. It’s set to pick up from the north soon and then swing S-SE by late morning. Looking at the MHL data from 0400 the average stuff was coming mainly from the SSE-SE with an average period of 6 seconds and a height of 1.3 metres. However the directional spectrum chart also indicated some component in the 10-15 sec range from the south, and it’s likely that which is delivering the bomb sets.

As of report writing time, the next tide was the 1.72 m high at 1110. We’re due to see a high of 25 along the beaches and there’s a 70% chance of a shower this afternoon. Outlook is for the surf conditions to revert to smaller again over the next week. The long range predictions currently show next week being little changed over the marginal to micro stuff we’ve been putting up with so far this summer.

Have a top old Wednesday everyone!
