Looks like a beautiful Sunday morning along the beaches. Sadly the swell is a barely there little east-ish looking wind bump. The best exposures, eg Curly, should be seeing knee to waist with the odd chest plus when a couple of the short period bumps double up just as they get to a bank. Beachwatch says water’s 21C and quality is good everywhere but maybe Queensie. Tide was a highish 1.7 m at 0825. Wind was coming lightly from the north but should swing more NE and get into the 15-20 kt range by lunch time. Out at sea the MHL buoy reports 1.5 m of ESE-SE bump at 8 seconds apart along with an overlay of smaller north chop.
Given conditions, the best shot today looks like being this morning ahead of the wind. Once it starts blowing, it’ll be hard to tell the wind chop from the underlying swell.
I’m not seeing much in the way of an improvement for the remainder of the week – which is in line with the Goat’s take.
Have a great Sunday everyone!
