The beat, or lack of, goes on


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 29th November)

Best Days: Possibly south swell magnets Tuesday morning


A continuation of tiny surf with nothing of value.

This week and weekend (Nov 30 – Dec 6)

There's a tiny chance for a hint of N/NE windswell to make it down the coast from southern NSW tomorrow, but I wouldn't expect anything over 1-1.5ft on the swell magnets and very inconsistent. Winds will be favourable and gusty from the S'th, swinging more SE through the day.

Following this the coast is expected to be flat most of next week, with constant frontal systems pushing across us being too zonal in nature to generate any size for our coast.

There might be a 1-2ft wave on south swell magnets Tuesday morning from a change overnight, but we'll look at this again on Monday.

Following this we may see the progression pushing east and into our swell window next weekend, but the models diverge on the strength and timing of this.

Therefore we'll have to have another look at this on Monday. Have a great weekend!
