Eastern Tasmanian Surf Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Friday June 24th)

Best Days: No good days until late next week

Features of the Forecast (tl;dr)

  • Mod-large S'ly swell likely Fri PM with strong S/SW-SW winds, easing Sat with W/SW winds


Small levels of infrequent E/NE swell yesterday mixed in with some local windswell, clean but tiny and fading today.

This weekend and next week (Jun 25 – Jul 1)

Unfortunately the current outlook lacks any swell of any kind as a series of mid-latitude fronts push across us from the west. They'll be too zonal in nature to generate any refracted S'ly swell but this looks to change into late next week/weekend.

We've got a strong cold outbreak forecast for us, with a strong polar low due to form to our south-west on Wednesday, projecting slowly north-east through Thursday evening and Friday.

This will see a significant fetch of S/SW gales projected north through our swell window, generating a large S'ly groundswell mixed in with mid-period energy next Friday/Saturday.

At this stage we're looking at surf to the 6ft range Friday afternoon on the south magnets but with strong S/SW-SW winds, easing Saturday from a similar size and with better W/SW offshore winds.

Check back here on Monday for more on this though. Have a great weekend!
