Just a quick note for now to say that there are waist plus sets to be had amongst the choppy greyness of Friday morning. Wind is south 10-20 kts, swell is mainly south (but there’s NE in it too). The south component is around 2 metres at 7 seconds though.
Next tide is a low at 1110.
Have a great Friday everyone!

Fresh to strong north to northeasterly winds are expected ahead of this front, with winds changing to a southerly direction behind and strengthening. Southerly winds moderate and then tend southeasterly into the weekend as a high pressure system, currently located over the Bight, moves east and becomes the dominant weather feature moving over the Tasman Sea into the new week.
