The high cell is weak but we’re looking at a fun end to Summer, with some mid week NE windswell for Tasmania and small background E swells for the sub-tropics. After that quiet spell extends into the start of Autumn a stronger frontal intrusion into the Tasman looks likely next week with some robust S swell accompanying it.

Friday, 23 February 2024

The next surfable day is Wed as high pressure moves into the Tasman and a strong N’ly flow forms along the NSW South Coast down to Bass Strait.

Wednesday, 21 February 2024

The coming days looks fun working the local winds and varying swells.

Monday, 19 February 2024

There are no standout days with grovel options for the keen.

Friday, 16 February 2024

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. To the south a complex low and front is expected to pass under the state over the weekend.

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 some small E/NE swell filtering down to NETas. More cold fronts and small S swells are also on the radar.

Monday, 12 February 2024

Large high in the Tasman directing plenty of E’ly-SE’ly tradewinds through the Coral Sea and South Pacific slot and a strong N’ly flow off the South Coast, generating NE windswells for NETas.

Friday, 9 February 2024

A trough off the NSW coast is focussing SE winds along the Eastern Seaboard, with a strong front/low traversing the Lower Tasman underneath Tasmania. 

Wednesday, 7 February 2024

Plenty of swell for the period, initially from the southern quadrant, then north-eastern.

Monday, 5 February 2024

To the south, a severe gale to storm force fetch off the ice shelf from a retrograding low under the South Island sends a rare S/SE groundswell up the Pipe, with another strong front/low late this week into the weekend expected to generate another pulse of S’ly groundswell late this week.
