13th Beach Surf Report 27.10.17…High Tide 5.39pm Low Tide 11.30am…a super soft small swell at 13th and townies…around 1 to 2ft and light offshore…tis difficult to find a half decent bank…but it’s going to be a sweet day at 28 degrees so a paddle seems in order…Saturday will be westerly at 20K’s and 2ft…cross shore on the open beaches….maybe an early at Raffamea Bay on the log….likely too small for Posso’s me thinks….Sunday will be northerly at 12K’s and 3ft…looks like being a good day of surf at 13th and townies…expected offshore all day so a couple of surfs maybe in order….Monday will be west to north west at 25K’s and 4 to 5ft..solid at 13th and townies…the banks may struggle with this swell and westerly aspect….the reefs from Posso’s to Bells will fire….expected onshore by 5.00pm…west to south west at 21K’s and 5 to 6ft….Tuesday will be westerly at 17K’s and 4 to 5ft…cross shore at 13th and townies…cleaner on the reefs from Posso’s to Bells…a clean wave early at Raffamea Bay…expected onshore by 11.00am…Pt Road Knight and Lorne will then be viable…stay upright and make a difference Ross Rasta Surf Co

13th Beach Surf Report…20.10.17 Cylinders…the joys of spring are now upon us….be strong…bust out your self-help books…meditation, yoga and even colonic cleansing have all been reputedly helpful for the impending stress of onshore great weather days…I’ve found chicken burrito bowls with a sparkling mineral water from the French Alps absolutely irrelevant to this dire situation, though I do like the notion of a little French in all our lives…hold that thought, I will think about this a little more…though I digress…smallish 2ft onshore choppy horrible swell at 13th and townies…expected to build during the day but still horrible….maybe Lorne but that’s probably optimistic…Saturday will be westerly at 13K’s and 4ft…looking way too cross shore for 13th and townies…maybe an early at Posso’s before the expected onshore by 11.00am….then maybe Pt Road Knight or Lorne…Sunday will be west to south west at 16K’s and 4 to 5ft…13th and townies will be large and messy…ditto Pt Addis, Pt Road Knight, Lorne and Kennett…have an escargot for me when you hit Lorne…Monday will be west to south west at 11K’s and 3 to 4ft…ditto above….Tuesday will be west to north west at 7k’s and 2ft…fairly clean at 13th and townies…expected onshore by mid morn….stay upright and make a difference Ross Rasta Surf Co
