Back to small but still surfable

Posted by: on May 29th, 2020

Hello Friends,

A line of showers was hanging just offshore as Friday started but that should clear away as the day goes along. Swell’s clicked down another notch and as of 0700 was running about a metre from the east by ESE at around 9 seconds apart. That meant the point was back to near flat but that there were still thigh to waist and a bit little peaks along the beach just north from the club. Not a lot of push on them and many shutdowns, but with something skatey like a twinny or minimal, you could definitely have a moment of fun. Wind was coming from the WNW at 5-7 kts. First tide of the day was the low at 0730 and it’ll be back to high at 1340. Ocean temp is sitting on 20C and we should see a high of 19C later.
The Goat dropped his forecast right on schedule last night, so if you’re making surf plans, have a look.

Lefts and rights on offer at 0730

Weather Situation
A broad high pressure system lies over southeast Australia today, while a weak trough looks set to bring the odd shower to coastal areas through the day. The high will drift slowly east during the next day or two, to be centred over the Tasman Sea by Saturday. A cold front is expected to skim across southern New South Wales during Sunday as the high weakens, before a second, stronger cold front on Monday. This front is forecast to bring a gusty west to southwesterly changes to coastal areas. Behind this, a new high is forecast to move across from the west, bringing a return to generally benign conditions.
