6:52am: A freezing start to the day, but we have 3-4ft of south swell and offshore conditions. The swell will mostly hold with offshores forecast all day, so it's looking like a good day of waves ahead. There is a bit of morning sickness, but the next couple of hours should see more lined up surf.
Live the Gisborne (Wainui) Beach Lifestyle. Okitu 3 bedroom for sale. Just a short stroll to the surf.
Long range forecast: The swell will ease tomorrow (2-3ft ft) and through to Sunday (2ft sets), before building steadily right though the next week. Tuesday - Thursday will see a long period solid east swell hit so it should be pumping. Offshores are forecast right through to next Thursday so there are a heap of good surf days coming up.
Offshore surf in the 3-4ft range today - looking good for waves all day.
Swell for south facing breaks with 3-4ft offshore conditions. It should remain pretty much the same all day.
The best board for today's surf is the 7S Superfish 3 More info...
