All Day Off Shore
The forecast isn't always right and today proved to be such a day. Strong easterlies forecast to start before dawn didn't happen, so the early risers got good sized swell and no wind to speak of. But as the wind picked up, and man was it icy, - it felt like it was blowing straight of the antarctic glaciers - the swell strated to pick up. Solid 10 foot sets were coming in, some a bit larger than that too. A bit of west saw Boaties lookin'the goods while the Bombie wasn't really working. Same with the Point, mainbreak looked good while Southside wasn't really working at all. That super strong easterly dropped later in the day and produced good conditions for those able to get in the water. As we write this at close to 5pm it's still off-shore, although the swell has dropped and is no where near the size it was earlier in the day (probably not bad news for many of us I suspect). Set up for the Pro is well and truly underway with access to The Point now restricted, depending on the traffic and the space they need to set-up safely. They are still allowing cars and surfers in, but that may not last for much longer depending on security issues and the safety of the site. Here's hoping we get some great conditions for May 2. Our surfing e-book is available for purchase from good e-book retailers, with a few copies of our printed guide still up for sale - but not for long. If you'd like a piece of surfing history order your copy now, as we ain't doing another print run at this stage. Find it on this site of course. Cheers all, stay safe, enjoy the good conditions for this long weekend, and remember those who gave up their lives to allow us to live the awesome life we do, on Anzac Day.
