Make the most of Thursday, as we’ve got northerlies on the menu for Friday.

Our recent source of trade swell is expected to muscle up a little over the coming days.

Friday, 16 February 2024

High pressure belt remains strong with cells lined up to enter the Tasman. A monsoonal low in the Gulf of Carpenteria is generating a long cloud band down the east coast. A long, broad E’ly tradewind fetch extends from the Coral Sea into the South Pacific with the tail of the fetch in Tahitian longitudes. 

Wednesday, 14 February 2024

Multiple cells of reinforcing high pressure then one by one move into the Tasman, maintaining a weak ridge up the NSW Coast and a deep E’ly flow through the South Pacific and Eastern Coral Sea, with resulting E’ly swells favouring the sub-tropics for size, with a rebuild in size expected later this week.

Monday, 12 February 2024

E’ly tradewind swell and plenty of it this week, with quality an issue in the short run.

Friday, 9 February 2024

The E’ly-SE’ly fetch gets reinforced later Sat by a new high pressure ridge squeezing up against a tropical low hovering NW of New Caledonia so we should see surf start to build again through Sun, again, tidally affected by the big new moon tidal amplitudes.

Wednesday, 7 February 2024

The surf outlook for SE Qld and Northern NSW is relatively straightforward, all thanks to an anchored ridge across the Northern Tasman Sea. 

Monday, 5 February 2024

A semi-stationary area of low pressure in the Coral Sea is anchoring a broad trade-wind flow with an extended tradeswell event ahead.

Friday, 2 February 2024

Common to all major models is a robust tradewind flow through the Coral and Northern Tasman which will favour the sub-tropics for size into the weekend 10-11/2 and hold plenty of pulsey E’ly tradewind swell through most of next week from Tues.

Wednesday, 31 January 2024

The monsoon remains active with a small sub-tropical low moving E off the QLD coast where it may undergo further development In the Coral Sea in the medium term. A typical summer tradewind band cradles this low next week with plenty of E quadrant swell expected, favouring the sub-tropics for size.
