Very small but not flat Saturday morning

Posted by: on December 14th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Light wind, an incoming tide and weak, small, but catchable waves (with the right equipment) on offer this morning. As the pictures show, size is in the knee to thigh high range. It’s not super consistent, but given the 9 second period of the 1 metre south swell, you don’t have to wait too long for another little bump to roll in. Ocean is on 20C and as of 0700 the breeze is light from the NNE. It should settle into a standard summery NEr by this afternoon. Tide is highish 1.89m high at 1025 and back to low at 1705.
While they differ a bit on prevailing direction, both the ECM and Wavewatch models are telling us to expect more very small and short period little wind swell over the coming week. If I had to pick, I reckon the best shot for a wave will be on Tuesday morning.
Have yourself a good Saturday everyone!
