Sunday looking sunny with small waves

Sunday crew at the point looking for waves

Hello Friends,

A light SSW breeze was doing what it could to clean up the junky looking conditions as of 0800. Swell was around the 2 metre 9-sec mark and coming from the SE and crowd looked to be at summer strength. Size looks to be in the knee to maybe chest range and waves don’t look to have a lot of power. I’d be taking the slop riding tool this morning. Tide is coming into a 1.77 m high at 1210 and the wind should drift around to the SE as it picks up into the 10-15 kt range.

Outlook continues to be for a week of small waves – but not going flat – and for the wind to be most favourable in the mornings before going around to the easterly quarters during the morning.  Peak day currently looks like happening around Wednesday. Then, if the long range models are right, the weekend could see an influx of fun-size east swell.

Have a great Sunday everyone!
