  • Swell analysis

    Short-Term Analysis (through Friday 4 December)

    Friday: Directional, long-period southerly groundswell arrives throughout the day, favouring south-facing breaks for size. Expect well organised, albeit infrequent sets in the chest to head high range, with scope for larger well overhead sets at south-facing beaches and deepwater reefs. Expect much smaller, even tiny surf as the groundswell wraps in at low levels across the majority of open beaches.

    Early light WNW land-breezes see excellent conditions until they tend east to NE, preceding a strong SSE/SE change, arriving across the South Coast in the afternoon and across Sydney and Newcastle in the evening.

    Saturday: Inconsistent, trailing south groundswell hangs in, favouring south-facing breaks for size. Mixing with rising NE windswell in the arvo. Early light easterly winds tend NE and freshen 15-25 kts in the afternoon.
