Forecast Issued Tuesday, 7 August, 2018


Pregnant with broadscale low-pressure, the southern Indian Ocean pushed out some seriously oversized pulses SSW groundswells for Indonesia throughout late July and early August. But, as they say, what goes up must come down – and that’s exactly what’s going on across The Archipelago this week. Indonesia’s swell window is now in the midst of a well-earned rest – and hence won’t be pumping out any major swell-events in the near-term. Thankfully, there are already emerging indications this suppressed phase in wave-activity will come to an end, leading in a return to winter-scale surf across the region into the middle of the month.
