A touch more activity, but weak

Recap

Tiny surf yesterday and today with nothing of note.

This weekend and next week (Dec 14 - 20)

The weekend will remain void of any surfable swell, but we’ve got a couple of average windows of opportunity opening up into next week.

A weak but deepening low moving up past us Monday is due to generate a very short-lived burst of strong S/SW winds in our southern swell window, kicking up a weak S'ly windswell through the day.

Size wise, south magnets up the northern end of the coast may see 2ft+ waves but with an onshore S/SW tending S/SE and then NE breeze. There may be a little runner at those magnets into the afternoon when the wind shifts NE.

Later week a broad but quick burst of strong SW winds may be seen in our southern swell window, producing a small 2ft of S'ly swell for south swell magnets Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

Winds are looking a little dicey, so we'll have to review this again on Monday.

Longer term a broader and stronger swell generating system may develop in our swell window early next week and generate some fun S'ly swell. More on this Monday. Have a great weekend!
