Shew, Friday at last. Pity no waves to wash the week's work away. Yet another week of pompin east. Surfer's have a love/hate relationship with summer - love the warm water and trunking it, hate the flipping east.
It's feels like it's been east for the whole of November, so I decided to check out the stats. Funny enough using the archived data from the 1st to the 25th it been a fairly even split. There're been 50% easterly days, 34% west and 16% variables.
So - we can't point a finger at the onshore for lack of surf this month (well, for at least half the month!) - more due to the fact that the southern Atlantic swell machine has packed away it's tools for the summer!
A quick check of these stats against November 09 showed last year was pretty much the same. I then decided to check out the Dec 09 stats - bad idea! If last year Dec is anything to go by, best you all find something to do next month - cos you ain't going to be surfing! Dec 09 rocked in with 60% easterly days - so reckon the Reserve is going to be chokka block! Least your cars should be safe!
Holding thumbs for some wind swell tomorrow - going to be touch and go though, as with the wind easing off all of tonight the swell might have dropped a fair bit by tomorrow morning....
Cool weekend to all.
