Based on today’s (under) performance I’m going to pull back Thursday’s expected size from the distant trade swell source.
The stationary trade belt across our E/NE swell window is a beauty, and it’s going to be a source of quality surf for quite some time.
A fun mix of S’ly groundswell and NE windswell is expected all weekend.
We’ve got some more south swell due over the coming days, generated by the parent low to the front that whipped up today’s pulse.
Couple of options on the cards this week.
Today’s southerly change will whip up a short range south swell that’s due to peak overnight before trending downwards through Saturday.
So Christmas Day, eh? Unfortunately it’s not looking too flash.
Today’s freshening NE winds are kicking up a small local swell that’ll occupy the region through Tuesday.
No major changes for the weekend: get in early Saturday as we’re looking at diminishing wave heights across both days.
However, this fetch is both slipping southwards (not good for us) in addition to a counter-clockwise rotation of the fetch alignment (also not good for us), which reduces the surf potential from what would have otherwise been an excellent swell producer.
