An easy morning to pass on a surf thanks to the showery grey skies, 10C air temp and 15-20 kts of SSE wind. Swell’s a choppy 2.8 metres at 7 seconds from the SSE. As the picture shows, a hardy Sunday crew was undeterred by the grim conditions as they chased the odd waist high bump.
The weather should be better tomorrow, but the wind’s due to be out of the easterly quarters and swell doesn’t look like improving any over this morning’s gutless offering. I’m not seeing much exciting in the rest of the week at this stage either. That’s spring for ya.
Take care, mask up when you’re out and about and stay safe!
