Swell starting to show early

Posted by: on September 28th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Clean conditions and long south lines starting to turn up as Monday kicked off. Sets at better exposures were delivering wave faces into the chest high range. Wind was light early and out of the WNW. First tide of the day was a 1.3 m high at 0610. The 0.5m low is at 1150. Forecast is for sunny with a high of 20C and ocean is still 18C. Swell at sea was around the 2m mark at 0600 with an average period 7-8 seconds, plus there was some 9-10 second component in the mix.

Outlook is for surfable conditions across the next four days as the swell sticks around the 2 metre mark and periods stay at or above 10 seconds (tomorrow could be into the 14-15 second range). Morning should be the go wind-wise, but even after it comes up there should be a few sheltered surf options.

Have a great Monday everyone!
