The short range NE swell we’ve enjoyed all week will slowly begin to fade over the coming 24 hours, but it’ll be replaced by a bigger, strong E/NE groundswell.
We’ve got some reall nice surf likely over the coming days.
If you were to pass a casual glance across the surfcams, you’d never know that there’s actually a decent south swell in the water right now.
Today’s south swell will start to ease this evening and we can expect a steady downwards trend overnight and throughout Saturday.
Meanwhile, we’ve got two pulses of return south swell, that will originate from the opposite side of the trough as it clears to the east.
The complexities outlined in last Friday’s forecast have held nicely through into this week.
We’re looking at a similar mix of short range NE windswell and some small distant E/NE swell for much of the weekend, probably similar on Saturday as per what we saw today.
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.
