Look further afield for surf

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 Wednesday 13th November)

Best Days: No good days

Recap

A tiny windswell out of the north yesterday, though unsurfable and flat today.

This week and weekend (Nov 14 - 17)

Our flukey S'ly swell for tomorrow is still just that. Flukey.

A strong and broad fetch of SW winds were generated in our swell window today, but we're only likely to see 1-2ft of southerly swell on the magnets tomorrow, gone by Friday.

Winds will be great for south magnets with a fresh NW'ly, but keep your expectations low.

The only source of swell this period is a small spike Sunday, produced by a weak front pushing past the south-east corner of the state on Saturday.

A small 1-2ft wave may be seen across the south magnets, though very weak.

Longer term a there's still nothing significant on the cards so maybe check the South Arm outlook.
