What a run of surf days we’ve had. As expected, it was a bit smaller again this morning, but there were still chest high wave faces along the beach and even occasionally at the point. The offshore buoys were showing 1-1.5m from 150° at 9-11 seconds as of 0800. Beachwatch says the water’s on 18C and the Bureau’s calling for a sunny, 20C day along the coast. First tide of the day is the low at 1040 and the high will be along just after sunset (1710). Both the ECM and Wavewatch models are showing the energy levels decaying away to marginal to near flat from tomorrow through to Saturday morning. After that it looks as though it should come back up into the fun range – potentially. It’ll be interesting to see what the Goat’s take is tomorrow evening…
Go well with your day
A high pressure system over northeast New South Wales is slowly tracking to the Tasman Sea as a series of cold fronts approach from the west. The first of these fronts slipped to the south on Tuesday. The second, more significant, front is expected to cross the state on Thursday and Friday, bringing a southerly change to most coastal areas.
