A noisy and gusting, chill north easterly wind is blasting across the fields and gusting down the lanes, meeting those marching swells from the Atlantic head-on.
There’s six feet or more of curling and peaking, walling waves thundering in at high tide,the wind slapping straight into the wave faces creating thick barrels of churning water.
It looks like a bit of a battle to surf, the wind must be nudging towards gale force, on those gusts at least but then those tubes are beckoning!
Those high tide breaks (and it is still a super high tide at 7.7 metres!) that have a beach head or sand dunes or a wall to protect them are the places to go right now, those ones that are beneath wind-breaking cliffs, they’re the places to head today!

That howling wind is screeching offshore here this morning as well, exploding into those high tide rolling waves head-on.
There’s a couple to three feet of offshore churned surf with sets marching in every ten minutes or so that are twice that size and bigger.
The south easterly wind is almost pushing those high tide waves backwards they are so strong but those stronger set waves are churning themselves inside out as the push against that wind.
The more sheltered spots will be easier to surf today but there waves to be tubed on marching in here as well!

Surf Forecast for Monday 11th April 2016

Sunday’s stormy offshores will have reduced the swell by today but the wind should have eased overnight and continue to lighten to an offshore breeze for Monday morning, disappearing entirely by the evening.
So, three feet and offshore first thing, glassing off through the day!
Shame about the weather again though.

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

The strong winds of the weekend should quickly ease as the new week unfolds, Monday starting out calm and gently dull but with still a half decent swell curling our way.
Those glassy conditions of Monday afternoon will be replaced by light offshores and brighter weather as we go through Tuesday and into midweek, the size of the surf dropping to small through Tuesday before rebuilding into midweek.
So a good start to the week is waiting for us with three feet of offshore shaped surf becoming glassier and then turning into smaller but clean and fun-in-the-sun surf, before building again!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
