Eastern Tasmania Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Monday 19th July)

Best Days: South swell magnets Wednesday morning

Features of the Forecast (tl;dr)

  • Building S windswell late tomorrow with a strong S/SW change, easing Wed with W tending variable N/NW winds
  • Small NE windswell Sat and Sun with N/NW winds and W/SW winds respectively


Weak, small to tiny surf and nothing of note.

This week and weekend (Jul 20 - 25)

The surf will start tiny tomorrow but a trough pushing up past the coast will bring strong S'ly winds and a late increase in S'ly swell to 3ft+ or so but with those strong, poor winds into the afternoon.

The swell will peak overnight and ease back in size Wednesday from a similar 3ft+ as winds shift back to the W, variable N/NW into the afternoon.

Hit up the south swell magnets for a fun wave in the morning before the swell fades.

Following this, unfortunately there's nothing too significant on the cards with the N/NE swell mentioned on Friday now looking very small. This is due to the swell generating N/NE winds now sitting too far east and away from us on the weekend.

We may see a small 1-2ft wave on Saturday and Sunday from the NE along with offshore winds.

Longer term the outlook remains slow, but more on this Wednesday and Friday.
