Light Onshore wind
Surf conditions at 6.55 a.m. on Tuesday 14th May 2013:
There's a blanket of rain snuggling over us this morning, a dark and broody, very wet start to the day with maybe just the hint of some lightness over there.
The wind has dropped a lot but is still onshore (westerly? Or west south westerly maybe), not much more than a breeze really but still making for sloppy and choppy conditions. With a four to maybe five foot swell rolling in it is a bit frustrating that it is so messy and with high tide only a couple of hours or so away, it is possibly as good as it's going to get.
Unless of course that wind changes,........ as it is forecast to do. If only for a moment or two!
It might just be worth keeping an eye on it here through lunch time. Those weather charts are showing a little kink in the isobars, maybe, just maybe, allowing a wind swing to offshore.
Only for a while though!
Have you seen any of the clips and images from Teahupoo (Tahiti) yet? A big and clean swell has been forecast accurately allowing all the guys to get on it (the wonders of modern surf forecasting, eh!).
Check some of the images below!
Toby Donachie and Micah Lester have been getting decent little waves in all this wind over the last day or two. Have a squint at this to see how it has been: vimeo.com/65927129
