Breeze was light as of 0700 and waves were in the knee to waist high range thanks to the 1.7 metre, 7 second south wind bump. First tide of the daylight hours is the high at 0730. Water is around 21C and quality should not be a problem.
Wind was out of the WSW early but should wander around to the south for the middle part of the day.
Outlook is for surf conditions to generally bumble along at the current intensity across the coming week. Today could see a slight uptick in size this afternoon, but my hunch is that the dropping tide will keep it slow until pretty late in the day.
As for the rest of the week, may I refer you to the very excellent Goat!
A southerly change associated with a cold front will continue through northern coastal waters today, with a second surge of southerly winds expected for coastal waters during Sunday and Monday as another cold front clips the far southeast of the state. By the start of the new week, a new ridge of high pressure is forecast to extend along the coast, with cold fronts slipping well south.
