Easter Weekend 2019

Easter looks okay surf wise altho Friday dawns tiny or flat in crisp light NW offshores puffing crisp moderate west. Partly cloudy and warm. A cold front is on the way overnight, and by Saturday a stiff SW buster in place, white kapping the hood. A new, mixed, short period stormsea is increasing all day, with wildside coast messy and wild. Points are showing promise in arvi 3-4'+. Winds moderate SW by evening. Partly cloudy with showers. Sunday lekker glassy early. Leftover 4-5'+ surf. Could be firing. A light SE builds into a miff yeasterly onshore towards evening. Partly cloudy and cool and showery. Easter Monday kapped by a NASTY beasterly onshore, with a strong High pressure system sitting south of the country, blasting the east wind across the southern bow. Partly cloudy and cool to warm. Thursday smashed by honking beasterly. Big 3-7ft windsea now runs. Sunny and warm.
