Lotsa waves this morning

Posted by: on September 12th, 2019

Hello Friends,

That’s interesting. Yesterday’s forecasts and models pointed to declining energy levels overnight, but it only looked a bit smaller as of 0700. There were shoulder plus sets along the beach north of the surf club and chest to shoulder plus at the point for the 20 or so already in the water. Wind was light NW under sunny skies when I grabbed the snaps. Out at sea, the swell was 3.7 metres at 12 seconds apart from the SSE-SE. So, if you had a good session yesterday, I’d go back there again today.

Outlook on the ECM and Wavewatch models is for the wave energy to fade back to sub one metre tomorrow. But the Bureau begs to differ, predicting a mix of east and south swell for Friday. – and they see the south pulsing up on Saturday (along with some south wind). Beyond that, we’re left to the ECM and Wavewatch for a look into the future and they’re telling us we could be in for an extended period of weak and small conditions.

Make a move today if you can!
