Saturday sees a slight shift in swell direction as a new, longer range pulse of ESE swell fills in across the region. This is generated by a strengthening ESE fetch cranking up towards 20 to 30 knots above the North Island. This should see wave heights hanging in at two to three feet throughout Saturday and there’s plenty more in store into Sunday and early to mid next week.
