Surf conditions at 7.20 a.m. on Friday 22nd March 2013:
It's all about the sets this morning.
The wind has eased a little and should continue to do so but it's hardly calm! There's still a gusting south easterly pushing against the waves, bending trees and bushes the wrong way, washing down the 'other' side of the house with that lashing rain. And that is holding back the swell at least a little.
You're going to have to have some patience to get the best out of it today, the three foot sets of a new swell rolling through only every ten minutes or more.
And they are the ones that you're going to be best off waiting for.
Those inbetweeny waves are looking a bit fat, a bit lazy, a bit small. Beautiful to see but maybe a bit frustrating to ride.
But the set waves, they are the ones! And they should become more frequent as the day rolls on and through the weekend as the wind eases and drops.
So the swell should build, the wind should ease up and, no, it's going to be tomorrow before the sun starts to shine!
