Eastern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Friday 4th June)

Best Days: No good days

Features of the Forecast (tl;dr)

  • Small, fading S swell tomorrow with strengthening N/NW winds

  • Building E-E/NE swell Thu/Fri with strong onshore winds, easing and cleaning up next weekend


Tiny to flat conditions.

This weekend and next week (Jun 5 - 11)

A cold front that's currently pushing up past us isn't expected to bring much in the way of surf, with fading 1-2ft sets across the south magnets early tomorrow with a strengthening N/NW breeze.

A N'ly swell shown later Monday and Tuesday will be generated by strong N/NW winds ahead of a mid-latitude low but I wouldn't expect much over 1-2ft owing to the poor alignment for our coast.

Of greater significance are the developments once the mid-latitude low pushes further east and into our swell window. We're due to see a fetch of strong to possibly gale-force E/NE winds slipping south and into us through Thursday and Friday, kicking up an increase in moderate-large sized increase in E/NE swell.

Winds will be initially poor and strong onshore with surf in the 5-6ft range, improving and dropping once the low drifts south of us, which looks to be next Saturday. We'll continue to keep a closer eye on this over the coming updates so check back here Monday and Wednesday.

Have a great weekend!
