Great outlook for the period

Victoria Forecast by Craig Brokensha (issued Monday 14th September)

Best Days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday on the beaches, Saturday, Sunday

Recap

Slow waves Saturday morning as Friday's inconsistent W/SW groundswell eased back in size but a flukey new pulse of swell from a strong but poorly tracking low filled in through the mid-late afternoon providing 3ft sets on the Surf Coast and 5-6ft sets to the east.

Conditions weren't as favourable on Sunday with a mix of easing S/SW energy and new inconsistent W/SW groundswell to 2-3ft on the Surf Coast, average to the east and to 4-6ft.

Today we're seeing building SW groundswell energy linked to a great conveyer belt of polar frontal systems moving in from the Heard Island region and under the country. Surf to 3-5ft was seen this morning on the Surf Coast, 6ft to the east and we should see the size building further into the afternoon but with onshore winds.

This week and weekend (Sep 15 – 20)

The coming two days are looking excellent for surfing with options right across the state with a larger and stronger pulse of SW groundswell tomorrow, easing slowly Wednesday and with favourable winds.

Today's, tomorrow's and Wednesday's swell have been produced by a drawn out progression of polar fronts, generating various fetches of gale to severe-gale west to west-southwest winds through our south-western swell window.

The strongest of the fronts is now passing across and under Tasmania (on top the active sea state created before it), with the largest pulse of long-period SW groundswell from this source due to fill in tomorrow.

There's no real change to the expected size with surf to 5-6ft due on the Surf Coast magnets, 8ft sets to the east. There's the chance for the odd bigger bomb on those Surf Coast magnets and a light NW breeze will favour protected spots ahead of weak and possibly variable afternoon sea breezes.

Due to the dawn out and longevity of the progression the easing trend through Wednesday will be slow with easing 3-5ft sets on the Surf Coast early, 6ft+ to the east.

An approaching trough will swing winds around to the N'th Wednesday morning (N/NW Surf Coast and possibly tending N/NE through the day to the east), with a late afternoon change which will then spoil Thursday as winds linger from the S-S/SE and strengthen through the day.

The strengthening breeze will be linked to a high moving in from the west, behind the trough, but the high will be pushed off to the east through Friday, swinging winds to the E/NE and then N/NE on Saturday.

Swell wise a low point is expected on Friday, 2ft+ or so on the Surf Coast and 3-4ft to the east but come the weekend a fun S/SW groundswell should fill in.

The source will be a healthy polar front sliding in and under the high, generating a fetch of pre-frontal W/NW tending W'ly gales along the polar shelf.

The swell looks fun in size, building Saturday and reaching 3ft+ on the Surf Coast and 4-5ft+ to the east along with those great N/NE winds, likely easing Sunday as stronger N/NE winds kick in.

Into next week we may see winds remain favourable as troughy/mid-latitude storms push in from the west with smaller levels of swell, but more on this Wednesday.

The only people I know that drive to Melbourne for work are people who come from Melbourne and have a holiday home or people who have moved down here from Melbourne and have no connections on the peninsula and have to keep their Melbourne job.
Or locals who have done work for people from Melbourne on their holiday homes, and the people from Melbourne realise how much better peninsula locals are at doing everything (including surfing) compared to Melbourne people so they are happy to pay extra for those locals to travel to Melbourne to do work or them there.
Id rather be a small minded flog, than a tossa from Melbourne, who has to drive to the peninsula for work.

6ft Winki is a walk in the park NWS.

Paddle out is easy and usually dry hair if you time sets.

Take off is as easy as it gets.

Copping a set on the head is a gentle roll around only if you dive deep enough.

NWS, "Now that we know what the majority of melb surfers are like, think we will put in more effort to burn anyone from melbs." and then you say you are young and fit and thrive on crowds.
I know your type, Nothing more than a fucking inside Johnny pest who thinks that paddling past older locals, who have put in decades in the line up, gives him the right to the next set wave.
There's Melbourne crew who never do that, and they get a shit load more respect in the line up than some fucking knob who thinks he has extra rights in the lineup because mummy and daddy have a house in Torquay.
Fuck that. I'll be dishing off waves to some of the Melbourne regulars who have done the right thing and stayed away.
Oh and paddle inside me after I've been waiting for ages and take off, you'll be seeing the back of my head. Time spent in the water, and doing it with respect earns respect. Being some entitled twat gets you nowhere.

Will tell the kids to burn all the locals too and the cycle continues like this forever. Burn city haha. I usually let the first wave go if I sneak past people in the line up so they get the next wave in line.

You certainly are on the angry pills NWS perhaps some self reflection, yoga and meditation may help keep the veins in your neck from protruding as much. I thought you might have been enjoying the COVID 19 break from the crowds but it seems to have made you angrier. There are happy pills that can help if you seek out a psychiatrist.

The BigFooty forums has a sub called Bay13 for those who want to let off some steam or carry on a bit of banter. It makes for an entertaining read and keeps all the floggish posting in one place.

If they were, it was pretty cunning to leave the flashing lights on, at the path to the waves.

Started getting busy yesterday afternoon.
Lots of unfamiliar faces round the shops.
Not sure if the police are doing that much at the moment.
Last time there were waves it was packed at places that would normally not be that busy. All were locals either just with in or just out of their 5 kms. The 5km limit hasn't helped with crowds here it has just forced everyone to surf close by.
A lot of the crew surfing places they would normally not surf because they are what you would call car park surfers.
Apparently Gunna has been pumping with next to no one out, except for one indian bread man. Think he's getting lonely doing his 20m drawn out cut backs.
Has anyone been to cowards cove in the last few days, wondering if it's been crowded.

This swell has kicked a bit more ass than expected? Seems it’s strongest now.

Being such a drawn out and prolonged period of activity, the longevity and varying pulses since Monday through today are hard to nail down precisely. It'd be due to this.
