The Weekend Surf Forecast 21st -23rd April,2017
There’s very little in the way of surf on the radar this weekend. The presence of a large, quasi-stationary high over the southern Tasman Sea will keep a firm lid on wave-potential – not just over the weekend, but also into early next week. As Easter’s long-enduring run of E swell finally begins to dry up over the next couple of days, we’re left with a very slight ENE windswell that isn’t expected to push beyond 1 to 2ft on Saturday and Sunday. The upside is mostly light NW to NE winds, making for good surface quality all weekend.
Background E swell. Up to 1 – 2ft exposed open breaks, inconsistent in the upper range. WIND: Early light WNW tending light and variable, then NE around 5 to 15 knots during the afternoon.
Mix of short range ENE windswell and background E swell. Ranging from 1 – 2ft exposed breaks, small to near flat elsewhere. WIND: Early light N tending NE 5 to 15 knots during the afternoon.
ENE windswell. Sets to 1 – 2ft exposed breaks, grading small to near flat elsewhere. WIND: Early light N to NW tending NE 5 to 15 knots during the afternoon.
