Saturday morning will be the best of the weekend east of Melbourne and at exposed breaks across the state, with Thursday morning on the Surf Coast the pick of next week.
Take the highway south-east out of Melbourne if you're looking for a surf over the coming period.
Nothing to really get excited about this week with small, limiting westerly swells under improving winds from Thursday.
Great weekend of waves on the whole. A peak in S/SW swell is expected Saturday morning, with mainly W/NW winds slowly easing and swinging N’ly throughout the day, which will favour the Surf Coast (sets of about 3ft).
Looks like we’re entering a temporary lull in swell activity for the short term.
We’ve got a reasonably fun week of waves ahead for the Surf Coast. After an extended period of quality groundswell (last week) with a lot of west in its direction, we’re now looking at around five or six days with more southerly orientation.
Fresh north-west winds and a continuation of strong W/SW swell will continue to favour the Surf Coast all weekend.
No change to Monday’s notes - we’ve got plenty of great waves expected to finish the week, thanks to a conveyor-belt of cold fronts passing below West Oz over the last few days.
A second phase of long period swell is expected to arrive overnight (watch for the Cape Sorell and Pt Nepean buoys to crack the Tp 18 second+ mark again this evening), which should keep most areas flush with a similar level of inconsistent swell through Tuesday. Conditions are looking great with light N’ly winds right across the region.
Give Saturday a miss and hit up exposed spots on the Surf Coast for the best of it Sunday. Monday onwards looks good with Tuesday probably the pick.
