Poor outlook

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 Monday 4th November)

Best Days: No good days

Recap

A good run of N/NE swell over the weekend, building through Saturday and peaking Sunday though cleanest at spots not seeing the bulk of the size.

The swell is on the ease today and will be all but gone tomorrow.

This week and weekend (Nov 5 - 10)

The fetch responsible for the current N/NE swell has moved out of our swell window and come tomorrow, there'll hardly be anything left over 1ft across north-east swell magnets.

Unfortunately for the rest of the week there's no decent swell on the cards at all, so I hope you made the most of the weekend and this morning.

We'll see a mid-latitude frontal progression moving over us later week, but fetches on its back flank don't look significant and worthy enough to generate anything but a small increase in S'ly windswell.

A fleeting polar fetch of S'ly winds may generate a S'ly swell Sunday, though we'll have to verify this on Wednesday.

What ever S'ly swell is due Sunday/Monday will fade into early next week with a small N'ly windswell in the mix.

All in all there's no days to point out regarding getting a surf in unfortunately. Check back on Wednesday for more details about the weekend.
