Weekend Surf Conditions 19th – 21st July, 2019
Sydney, Newcastle and the South Coast
There’s just one more pulse of directional SSW swell left in the Tasman-tank before this week’s extended run of surf starts to dry up. That leaves Friday morning as the pick for size and power, before it starts to fade during the afternoon; leaving us with much slower 2 to 3ft leftovers along true south facing spots – and that pretty much means small to tiny elsewhere. There’s now little doubt this will lead in a virtually flat day across the region on Sunday, marking the first of several such days persisting through early to mid next week.
Southerly swell peaks early, ranging from 2 to 4ft across south facing beaches, grading to 1 to 2ft+ along open beaches with size depending on exposure and easing in the afternoon. WIND: Westerly, WNW 5 to 15 knots, turning SW to SSW 15 to 20 knots during the day, then South to SSE and easing in the afternoon.
Increasing northerly winds and dropping Southerly swell. Sets tending inconsistent to around 2 to occasional 3ft across south facing breaks early then fading, more like 1 to 2ft elsewhere with size depending on exposure. WIND: WNW 5 to 10 knots, tending N to NNE 10 to 15 knots during the afternoon.
Small residual SSE swell mixes with slight NE windswell. Surf slows to an inconsistent 1 to 2ft across exposed open and south facing beaches, verging on flat elsewhere. WIND: NW to NNW 10 to 15 knots, easing NW 10 knots later.
