Easter Weekend 2019

Easter Friday kicks off the weekend with a pestilent NE beasterly that hammers you all day, mashing up a solid six foot SSW swell. Partly cloudy and warm to hot. The buster smacks through early on Saturday and you are white kapped sut brah. The wind hammers the mixed up easterly windsea, and is brushing back a leftover 4' SW swell. A bit messy and short period and peaky on wild side coast, with the meat arriving overnight. Partly cloudy and warm. Sunday the surf looks 4-6' and it fires if the dawnie holds an offshore window open for you before a moderate southerly sideshore becomes a moderate SE onshore. Partly cloudy and cool and showery. Easter Monday sees you slapped by a big gooey chokkie beasterly bunny onshore from a High pressure system moving up the coast from south of the country. Partly cloudy and cool with showers. Tuesday slapped by nasty beast wind. Dik east windsea builds. Ugly day. Partly cloudy and warm.
