STOP PRESS: Anti Rubgy Swell Shows Up

Halfway through the Rubgy yesterday a solid 3-4ft swell showed up un-announced and catching all the Haka-Lovers off guard. Some good clean waves until the Southwest punished it in the afternoon.
See you later in the week for some Action Time!!

Painfully Waiting.

It certainly has been a bit of a dry spell over the last couple of weeks as el-nino takes hold locking us into the trademark westerly pattern but hey.... how about that suntan!!!
Its literally been warmer than Rarotonga !!
Never fear however folks as there is a blip on the radar but youre gonna have to wait until the end of the coming week.
Just to add to the ever anxiety building pleasure of crystal ball gazing at long range forecast charts I have added yet another super long 21 day isobar chart just to really get those stress levels at peak so check it out under Swellnet Wams.

Its a sad day when I dont even have any photos to post but chin up and look toward the future days.

Say Hello to El - Nino !!!

After that bizzare 2 week run of unseasonably easterly weather we are now settling into some classic El-Nino setups with northwest to southwest flows looking set to run right throughout the month.
A really good old fashioned Northwest bender lined up in a 10-12 days time will be sure to blow the cobwebs out of a lot of crew who seemed to have distanced themselves from the lineups of late. Question mark. Question mark.
The switching Southwest Northwest trend is a tricky one to try and source the right place and right time and quite often its a disastrous situation along the most of the boulder bank leaving a lot of people scratching their heads.

If you nut it out though you will find some hidden gems.
The truth is out there,

Swell Season On !!!
