A strong ridge will develop through the Tasman Sea in the way of Friday’s gusty S’lies, and this will generate strong S/SE swells for the region this weekend. 

Monday, 23 April 2018

This Tasman Low is going to dominate the charts for some time.

Friday, 20 April 2018

It’s way too early for any confidence on size and timing, but the short story is that the end of next week and next weekend is looking very dynamic, and likely very large at some coasts.

Wednesday, 18 April 2018

A new long period S’ly swell will push up during Thursday morning, generated by a polar low south of Tasmania earlier this week.

Monday, 16 April 2018

So, our recently spell of east swell has certainly drawn to a close, and the focus has swung to the south, thanks to a strong frontal passage through the Tasman Sea.

Friday, 13 April 2018

The SE swell has eased more rapidly than expected today, so I’m pulling back my expectations for Saturday’s waves.

Wednesday, 11 April 2018

Broad brushstrokes can be applied to various coasts over the next few days. 

Monday, 9 April 2018

Looks like a couple of problematic days of northerlies ahead, mainly for southern regions.

Friday, 6 April 2018

We’re looking at easing short range trade swell sources, and a steady underlying long range E’ly groundswell originating from TC Josie, positioned south of Fiji earlier in the week.

Wednesday, 4 April 2018

No change to the forecast for the rest of the week: TC Iris will maintain a stranglehold on surface conditions north from about Yamba.
