A few sets left in the tank this morning

Posted by: on August 14th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Sets at the point and along the beach were still in the shoulder plus range at around 0700 this morning. Once again, the point was busy but the beach had few takers – evidence that the lack of decent banks continues. Wind was out of the west at 10-12 kts which made the 13C air temp feel sharper. Skies were clear and tide was coming into a 1.3m high at 0740 (it’ll be back to low at 1315).

Outlook is for waist to chest high waves and benign wind conditions to last all day. Tomorrow the predictions are all in agreement – it’ll be smaller but (hopefully) still in the surfable range. Beyond that the prospects are looking less than exciting. So might be a plan to get in today if the schedule permits.

Have a great day everyone!

Ok size but shutting down along the beach

Set rolls into the point a little after 0700

Up the beach, a little line
