Below is a summary of the swell and wind activity over the next few days, for the full detailed forecast, please visit the Forecast tab on the event website.
A series of late season storms push swell with perfect timing into the competition window.
While Saturday opens with a mix of left over north swell and a local wind swell, along with fresh winds onshore at times, the real interest is from Sunday on.
This should herald the arrival of a solid pulse of long period north swell. Enough to tick exposed peaks into the head and a half+ range and with lighter winds mostly off or cross shore.
This pulse fades slowly and is followed by a likely second in the middle of the week, although early signs are fresher winds with a hint more north in them as we move later into the window.
There'll be no shortage of swell on tap - with the chance to organise around the best tides and winds it's a great outlook for competition.
