Easter Weekend 2019

Easter starts with a schtonking NE beast wind Friday which ruins an epic 15 second six foot south swell running out of town (3ft in town). Partly cloudy with showers. Then, on Saturday after a bit of morning sickness from leftover NE effects, the buster snaps thro like an elastic from mid to late morning. Open coast hammered by SSW winds, while town sheltered, and with a 4-6' south swell running on the open coast, expect fun 2' even 3' sets bending into the basin. Otherwise, the solid S to SE swell is smashed out of town. Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Sunday plenty open ocean swell 4-5' with 1-2' peaks in town in light south sideshores. Not too bad early with a hint of SW offshore at first. Then a light to moderate S blows, becoming SE in arvi. Cloudy with showers. Easter Monday small all round 2-3' SE swell (maybe even a bit bigger in arvi) but winds are a bit miff SE onshore. Cloudy and cool with showers. Tuesday some weak SE swell 3' and a frisky beast wind bunny chow. Partly cloudy with residual showers.
