surfgirlPiha

A massive swell on the build today, solid 8-10ft this morning with extreme onshore winds blasting upto 50kmph at report time, so complete write off for surfing today – Look for winds to change to SW tomorrow and then easing around mid-week – Swell will continue to build.

Muriwai

Very messy surf day with strong and gusty westerly winds blasting the coast, a huge swell is on the build for this week, already 6-8ft with bigger sets. Look for a SW wind change for tuesday.

Raglan

Extreme onshore winds this morning and solid wind groundswell in the 6-8ft+ range building further today – winds will stay strong and gusty westerly today shifting to SW tomorrow. Wednesday the winds should ease back more.

Mount Maunganui

Cold and blustery westerly cross shore winds this morning blowing out remaining swell today. 1-1.5ft at report time easing quickly, poor surfing today.

 

Why only these locations? Because these are the places I surf.
