Weekly Surf Report
Tuesday 10th, June Small 1-2ft swell with a NNE wind. It's a bit small and northerly for the reefs. Best option today would be hunt around the NNE friendly beachbreaks east and west of Torquay for a small fun clean waves. Jan Juc will be ok as the tide moves in later. Low tide 10.18am at 0.3m High 5.16pm at 1.55m. Wednesday 11th, June Building W/SW swell during the day, some 3ft sets are likely by the afternoon but it'll probably be much smaller in the morning. Fresh NW winds, gusty at times. Thursday 12th, June Building W/SW swell with inconsistent sets between 3ft and maybe 4ft at Bells and 13th, smaller elsewhere. Fresh and gusty NW winds. Friday 13th, June Increasing SW swell to 4-6ft at exposed locations (smaller at protected locations), but generally bumpy with fresh and gusty SW winds developing. Outside chance for a brief period of W/NW winds at dawn. Saturday 14th, June Rapidly easing SW winds overnight may go variable or even light NW by the morning. Easing size, with lumpy but improving waves during the day, generally 4-5ft at open stretches early, easing to 3-4ft by the afternoon. Not perfect but well worth a surf. Swellnet
