Hello Friends,

A few showers about as Saturday morning got started. It was a chilly 9C just before sunrise and the wind was coming lightly from the WNW. Out at sea the swell was in the 2-3 metre range and coming from the SE at 12-13 seconds apart. Tide was low at 0705 and going to the high at 1315. Water is still 19C, which will be a degree below the high for Saturday.

The wind looks set to drift around to the S to SSE by late morning and at the same time, the Bureau tells us that the swell should decrease a little. Tomorrow’s surf prospects are less exciting as the energy levels fade further. But, that said, it shouldn’t go flat and then it’s due to perk up a touch for Monday and Tuesday.
