Fun weekend swells shaping up for surfers
LESS is more for surfers this weekend.
While a slight decrease on Friday’s size is expected, a southerly should produce plenty of fun waves for surfers.
While waves this morning will be smaller across northern NSW, wave forecaster Craig Brokensha said winds would combine to lift swell before another decrease later today.
“A reinforcing, acute southerly groundswell will keep fun waves hitting the region,” Brokensha said on swellnet.com.
“This will be generated by strong to gale-force west to south-westerly winds, with (swells) around 3ft+ on the sets, before easing later in the day.”
Brokensha said the next increase in swell would be seen through Sunday as another strong cold front pushes up the NSW coast.
“This will produce building levels of southerly wind swell, starting from a small base along with poor southerly winds,” he said.
“A quick burst of severe gale to storm-force south-westerly winds should produce a kick late on Sunday.”
