Quiksilver Pro Surf Forecast :: Thurs 4th Oct

Summary

- Still little change to the forecast.
- Dropping on Friday as we see the tail end of this weeks large swell.
- Sunny skies and hot weather likely to create fresh afternoon onshore wind starting earlier than recently.
- Small conditions over the weekend.


Fri 5th

Dropping swell in the lower period range looking very similar at this stage to the swell we saw at the start of round one. Variation in the wind forecast but the possibility of a stronger afternoon onshore from a return to summer temperatures.

Dying swell in the 4-6ft@10 seconds range dropping through the day but allowing for surf in the head+ range to start and in a smaller contestable range into the afternoon.

WIND: We expect continued morning offshores, in this case with a southerly component freshening during the morning. With a forecast return to near summer temperatures and clear skies the rapid heating of the beach during the morning carries a strong risk of creating a potentially disruptive onshore wind into the afternoon.

Sat 6th / Sun 7th

Increasing confidence in modest NW wind swell in the 3ft@9 seconds range bumping a little into Sunday as a modest west swell comes into the mix.

Saturday looks to be a continuation of dying NW wind swell giving waves in the waist to chest+ range with hints of a smaller longer period west swell reinforcing things later in the day and a potential slight bump for Sunday.

WIND: Saturday sees a potential for moderate southerly winds strengthening during the morning and coming onshore later in the morning. This small swell will be more likely affected by this wind than the larger conditions we saw earlier in the week.
