Best Days: No days to recommend


Tiny surf for the most part, with a slight kick in S'ly groundswell today offering peelers at south swell magnets.

This week and weekend (Oct 6 - 11)

The coming week isn't too interesting, with a building N/NE windswell due through tomorrow before fading Wednesday.

The fetch generating this swell won't reach any major strength and won't be aligned perfectly, with north-east facing beaches only due to reach 2ft or so tomorrow afternoon with average N/NW tending W/NW winds.

A vigorous low will move across us tomorrow evening, pushing the fetch out of our swell window, but a fetch of severe-gale SW winds under us early Wednesday should kick up a tiny kick in S'ly swell to 1-2ft max across south facing beaches through the afternoon.

For the rest of the week, there's nothing too major to talk about, with the weekend also looking to remain tiny for the most part.

Longer term there's still nothing major on the cards, but we'll have another look at this on Wednesday.
