Small waves under cloudy skies

Posted by: on April 9th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Grey skies again this morning, and a small, glassy little swell delivering knee to waist high bumps for the keen. Wind was light WNW early but due to come around to the south later. Tide is high at 0910 and according to the latest buoy data, swell was 1.3 metres from the ESE at about 7 seconds apart.
Outlook remains so-so I’d say, but let’s see what the Goat has to tell us later today…
Take care when you’re out and may you and yours go well!
