A light sou’ westerly breeze is blustering down the empty lanes this morning, the deserted beach looking happily golden beneath a clearing sky of blue.
Three feet or so of dark and brooding, more wintery looking blue surf is feathering across The Point spilling left-handers into Booby’s.
Yep, it is all very, very pleasant.

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 7th April 2020
Dry south easterly breezes are going to bring mild and pleasant air up from the continent, blowing straight offshore to meet a building three to four foot swell.
The complete irony of this lockdown is not going unnoticed, after months of howling onshores and mountainous seas, glorious conditions settle in but out of reach of reach for most.
Good old Mother Nature must be having a little chuckle at our expense I think!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Well as these strange times continue to preoccupy us all, good old Neptune and Mother Nature seem to be pulling together to offer sublime conditions to backdrop these isolation days.
Light offshore breezes are forecast for the rest of the week, south easterly whispers just tidying and fidgeting a thick and solid little three to four foot swell. Clear blue skies will be on offer courtesy of that high pressure system parked overhead and air temperatures should remain pleasant throughout.
It doesn’t get much better than this and at least we can enjoy the view, even if we can’t fully explore the beauty of it all.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay home, wash your hands and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
