Fun weekend swells shap­ing up for surfers

Tweed Daily News - - SPORT - WAVE SCENE

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.”
