Fun run of N/NE swell

UNLESS YOU LIVE AT THE BEACH, PLEASE DON'T TRAVEL TO SURF

COVID-19 is changing the way we think about surfing. Travelling to the surf now means you're putting an unnecessary strain on the resources of small regional communities. So, please stay home. If you live near the beach and want to surf, please maintain a healthy spacing in the lineup, don't hang in the carpark, and keep your surf sessions shorter to allow others the opportunity to get wet. Above all, stay happy, healthy and look out for one another.

Eastern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Friday 1st November)

Best Days: Saturday, Sunday, early Monday

Recap

Tiny to flat conditions with no surf yesterday or today.

This weekend and next week (Nov 2 - 8)

We've got a good N/NE windswell on the cards for the weekend, with a slight downgrade Wednesday and now a slight upgrade today.

A strong and persistent fetch of N/NE winds will develop through our swell window this evening and tomorrow morning, shifting slowly away from us through the day.

This slower movement will result in a bit more size across our north-east swell magnets tomorrow, though local winds aren't as favourable.

Consistent 3ft+ waves are due tomorrow with a N/NW breeze, favouring more protected northern corners which will be smaller.

A better W/NW breeze is due Sunday morning, NW into the afternoon with a drop in swell 2ft to possibly 3ft across north-east swell magnets as the fetch off our coast retreats.

Monday will then be smaller again with easing 2ft+ sets under a W/NW tending NW breeze.

Following this unfortunately there's nothing too significant on the cards, therefore make the most of the weekend's waves. Have a great weekend!
