The immediate outlook sees another powerful round of SSW groundswell looms for Indonesian coasts over the next few days. The source is an intense polar low that developed deep beneath Madagascar last Saturday before tracking rapidly eastward across the Southern Indian Ocean, aiming a broad swathe of SW gales at Indonesia throughout Sunday and Monday.
A solid round of SSW groundswell spreading out off the storm and is rapidly closing the distance between the source and Indonesian shores. The leading edge of the groundswell begins to touch down late on Thursday at peak intervals of 20 seconds – initially too small to have a notable impact on wave heights. However, by Friday morning the bulk of the groundswell will be moving in across all Indonesian coasts; producing solid six foot plus surf across the more exposed reefs during the afternoon and mid to large surf elsewhere;
