Swansea looking promising for a run across to Coles Bay and back on Saturday is anyone is keen.

Maybe Kelverdon or another of the East Coast breaks will be working too?

It'll be rougher than you can imagine Clarence.

Youd be be better off wave sailing Muir's beach on the current forecast.

There will be a few kiters there as well I reckon, but it's a long beach.

Jason told me swell forecast- massive. I am reassessing. We might head down to Swansea with wave gear anyway.

There's a chair for you at Old Man Steve's I heard .

I reckon a few southerners will head up the coast Saturday if our locals dont turn it on.

4 sailors, 1 kiter, a seal and a dolphin.

Rafa and I were the guinea pigs floating around in 12-14 knots for the first hour, then it was a steady 15-20 knots for the rest of the day.

There were a few shoulder high waves a lot of the day.

Nowhere near as epic as predicted, but still worth a sail.

Wow not much swell at Kelverton! Surprising given St Helens was 8 foot + Saturday.

I think the swell went up the coast, maybe overnight?
The guys who tried to find a surf wave on the East coast below Swansea were all pissed off.
Kelverton had bigger waves than photo but very random
Saturday morning swell report said 2-3 meters, that was pretty accurate. Kelverton needs 4-5 to work
