Calm Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 6.45 a.m. on Thursday 16th May 2013:
A thick hail storm is hovering over us right now, tipping hail and sleet all over us on this chilly but otherwise calm and still morning. There's plenty of brightness, just over there again, promising better for later. But those heavy, heavy showers are never going to be too far away today.
The surf is a couple to three feet, really close fetch but with clean wave faces in the lightest of offshore breezes right now.
But I guess that offshore is very temporary.
It is lightly blowing spray off the tops of those breaking waves but those waves, as well as being really close together, are quite fat and lazy looking, a little flat faced in spite of the breeze.
Yep, it is all a little Wolfgang Bloch ish, with brooding skies above us, brighter around, those silver waves being edged by their whitewater.
The tide should show some improvement later, a promise of two to three feet and glassy surf awaiting.
Have you seen any of the clips and images from Teahupoo (Tahiti) yet? A big and clean swell was 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 that wind that blew last week. Have a squint at this to see how it has been: vimeo.com/65927129
