  • Swell analysis

    Summary
    A mix of SE and low-level easterly swell maintains fun-sized surf favouring the exposed beaches over the coming days. Saturday sees SE swell enduring as the primary source of surf; probably not exceeding the 2 to 3ft across the more exposed southern QLD beaches, with scope for a bit more size across far northern NSW coasts.

    From Sunday onwards we begin to see SE swell easing as low-level East swell inches up. This should lead in a couple of days of accessible tradewind swell in the 2 to 3ft range, prior to a slow decay in wave energy throughout the second half of the week. The surf outlook also coincides with mostly favourable autumn winds as a weakening high pressure ridge opens up a pattern of early light land-breezes, tending moderate onshore in the afternoons.
