WEEKEND SURF REPORT

The weekend is here and its looking great for a wave. The big tip is, get into it early. We have an early high tide at about 8.20am for NSW so the dawn patrol will pay dividends. As the tide goes out there will still be some nice waves before the North-East seabreezes begin to kick in. For the afternoon session you’ll have to head to the northern protected corners. The swell will drop off quite quickly across the weekend.

GAV’S WEATHER – PERFECT SPRING WEEKEND AHEAD

The Mid North Coast was the wettest place in the broadcast region yesterday as the rain produced up to 40mm. That rain has now cleared. The only cloud affecting the nation sits over the South-West with the arrival of more fronts after the wettest September in 22 years due to the constant bombardment of fronts. Clear elsewhere. The large high will now move out over the Tasman so winds will ease further. Expect a cold night especially inland and on the Tablelands before things warm nicely tomorrow. We are in for a fantastic weekend as the mercury climbs further under dry mostly sunny skies on Sunday enjoy.

BURTON TOYOTA SURF REPORT, SEPTEMBER 2

Westerly winds for all to kick start the first weekend of Spring. Those winds will be quite strong and the swell will battle to push in against them. The westerly winds will ease along the northern NSW and South-East Queensland coasts. They will remain strong for Newcastle and Central Coast waters. The mid to late morning high tide will also swallow some of that swell. The swell direction will be out of the north to begin with before switching to the south. Should be a good weekend of waves certainly worth looking around to find your own private wave.
