Another wonderful day is unfolding about us this morning, the sky is blue from horizon to horizon, the breeze is light and offshore, a light dusting of frost is quickly melting but, unfortunately, the surf is only small.
One to two feet of offshore glass waves are folding themselves over the sand and rocks, all pretty and appealing but no bigger than hip high. I guess the odd bigger one is coming through on those rare sets that can be seen lining up in the offshore breeze but there’s a long wait for those!
But don’t despair, the wave height is likely to double through the day and the wave-period is likely to stretch out to the top teens!
The waves should be pumping again by this evening!
Don’t you just love surfing a building swell!

It’s pretty much flat around here this morning with barely six inches to a foot of sloppy little waves washing ashore.
it’s a beautiful morning and, as ever the bay is looking wonderful but it’s not the place to aim for to surf today!
the other side should have some great surf as the day goes on!
