Clean and fun size at south magnets

Posted by: on May 20th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Clean, glassy and shoulder high on the bigger sets this morning from about No Mans to the Lugga. At 0600 the MHL Sydney buoy was seeing 1.2 at 14 seconds from the SSE. Wind was lightly offshore when I grabbed the pics and while it will pick up a little and swing to the NW, it shouldn’t be too much of a factor until later this afternoon. There’s a 1.48 m high at 0920 and then it’ll be back to a 0.5 m low at 1500. Water is an unseasonable 23C which of course is wonderful for surfing, but it’s also well above the 20.7C historical average for this time of year. Mother Nature is whispering warnings.

The long period swell giving us fun waves this morning could stick around through tomorrow, but beyond that, it currently looks like being very small to flat. So get out and enjoy if you can because it could be another week plus before we see a change to the overall patterns wavewise.

 

Looks promising, but this one didn’t pan out

Made it for some distance too

Nice section near the pole

Tiny at the point

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near the New South Wales coast is expected to slowly drift over the Tasman Sea over the coming days, maintaining a ridge across the state. This ridge will be the dominating feature over much of the new week, apart from the cold front skimming to the south of the state today, that will bring a weak southerly change to the South Coast on Tuesday.
