We will see the surf build to around 4-5ft this weekend with Sunday offering the best conditions. It'll be pretty quiet throughout the initial stages of next week, but there are hopes for a strong increase in swell late in the week and into the weekend.
Not a whole lot of action expected this week. Friday and Saturday will see a small lift in size, but nothing worth writing home about. The Long Wave trough should become more active over the Indian Ocean next week leading to more promising prospects.
If you didn't get lucky over the past couple of days, make sure you surf tomorrow. The outlook for the rest of the week is looking pretty slow.
Don't make plans on Sunday because the outlook is looking good. We should have clean 10ft surf across the South West and fun 2-3ft along the Metro stretch. Plenty more surf to follow as well with favourable winds.
Sunday is still looking good with a high pressure ridge providing light offshore winds and a solid swell peaking in the 10-12ft range. Early next week will also see a follow up swell with favourable winds.
The swell will ebb and pulse between 4-6ft throughout the coming week with workable winds on most days. Sunday is looking promising for a large pulse, and finally winds look favourable!
No shortage of size this weekend but fresh/strong onshore winds will limit options heavily. Next week holds much better prospects for a wave, despite being smaller.
The end of the week is looking shocking with fresh/strong onshore winds just about all day everyday. There will be some serious size on Saturday, but no decent quality. Wait 'til Sunday morning, or even into next week.
Best off to try and get wet on Tuesday morning. Conditions are going to really deteriorate throughout the end of the week. Large stormy surf due on Saturday afternoon.
Sunday's swell event has eased back a touch with the core fetch of 55kt winds becoming pinched and elongated. Core winds never really reached the 60kt potential, so the swell periods will be lacking for the outer bombies.
Regardless, the surf along the inshore is still more than likely to be very big, with light winds bringing a good chance of good surf. We will be monitoring the situation closely as it unfolds.
