What's the surf in Tramore like this weekend? Read on to find out.
Saturday is likely to see small and clean waist high waves in the morning with the low tide at around 10am. Two swells, a short period 3ft 6 second wind-swell and a smaller but likely more powerful 1.6ft 10 second groundswell are set to meet a light offshore (north) wind until around 1pm or so. This sort of swell/wind combination is an excellent match, particularly for beginners and improvers, and should see small and fun conditions all morning - an excellent chance to start surfing green waves.
Unfortunately conditions for Saturday are set to deteriorate rapidly as the day goes on with the swell dropping off and the wind going onshore. It is still likely to be surfable but the best conditions get out as early as possible.
Sunday too, looks like it has really good potential for fun surf. This time a small and long period, 2.5 10 second, groundswell is predicted to stick around all day along with light to moderate offshore winds. This combination could likely make for a great day of surfing on Sunday with waist to shoulder high waves all day.
For beginners on Sunday, the best bet is to get out earlier in the day with the low tide while for improvers and advanced surfers an hour or two before the high tide at 5.30pm should see the best conditions.
So altogether it looks like it could be a great weekend for surfing. The best conditions of the weekend are likely to be found on Sunday afternoon with waist to shoulder high long period waves with plenty of scope for all levels of surfer to have some fun in Tramore this weekend. The weather looks good to boot!
