Wave heights are trending steadily upwards at Cape du Couedic, which is a good sign - as opposed to a J-curve, which often denotes an event of shorter duration.
There’s a whole stack of swell on the way too, though initially it’ll be very westerly in direction, originating from a powerful low spinning up immediately south of West Oz that’ll drive a strong front through the Bight.
The models have slowed Friday’s frontal passage, which has delayed the weekends inbound westerly swell.
We’ve got a blustery weekend ahead. It’s a classic winter frontal pattern, that may become supercharged thanks to a tropical infeed, courtesy of TC Karim.
Make the most of the waves on the Mid Coast today before the swell fades into the weekend. The South Coast will be fun.
Plenty of surfable waves on the Mid Coast to end off the week but not the cleanest. Fun surf down South from the weekend into Monday.
Great surf down South tomorrow ahead of a change and large swell through Wednesday/Thursday, though clean options will be hard to come by.
A bit of wind but tons of swell inbound from the west and south west, cleanest on the South Coast over the coming days.
We’ve got a week of solid, occasionally windy conditions ahead as more fronts push on to the coast and the Southern Ocean conveyer belt delivers a series of powerful back-to-back groundswells.
Small, easing surf for the South Coast over the coming days with a large W/SW groundswell for the weekend with favourable winds.
