Mid Coast

The wind has swung to the SW overnight, and it’s blowing onshore at 12 knots early on the Mid Coast. Conditions are bumpy but there are a few small lines of swell underneath, with waves around 1 – 1.5′. It’s pretty slow and full early, and not a lot will change as the tide heads out during the morning. Low tide will reveal a few bumpy 1 – 2′ waves on the beach breaks, and the swell should lift a bit after lunch as the tide begins to push back in. The wind will stay out of the SW, but by mid – late arvo it may go light and variable. There should be a few 2′ waves by then, and conditions might be alight for a late paddle. This is the last dure report for a while, I’m putting surfsouthoz into hibernation during the Covid-19 pandemic. You can read a statement here. For now, stay safe everyone. Shred factor 4/10

Mid Coast

Northerly winds are husting over 20 knots on the Mid Coast early, and there are bumps rolling down the gulf. There’s still no waves, coming up to a high tide at 0740. A change is headed our way, and mid-morning the breeze will swing more westerly at 20 knots or so, then W – SW for the rest of the day. The wind will chop up the sea but it won’t be anything like a stormy. The incoming tide after lunch will only offer small chop early, but by late arvo a few small lines of swell should start to appear. Most likely it’ll only be around 1′, and bumpy for the rest of the day. Shred factor 1/10
