Please consider your local spots specific orientation to the coast and any local idiosyncrasies that may also effect the swell in relation to this regional forecast.

  • Swell analysis

    Summary
    The large, slow moving Tasman high responsible for this week's persistent onshore winds has a silver lining for the entire East Coast. In the short-term conditions won't get any better as fading Southerly groundswell leaves us with shorter period ESE windswell in the 2ft range across the region on Thursday and Friday. However, by Saturday morning conditions are likely to be looking substantially better.

    The onset of a modest Easterly swell should see better 2 to 3ft sets on offer across the region - and that marks the start of a steady building trend in ENE swell that's set to come to a head early to mid next week.
