We’ve just added Waimea bay to the list of spots, just in time for the Eddie which was set to go today…unfortunately the swell didn’t materialise on time, but everyone is hanging on the commissioners final say. Crowds turned out early to secure a car park spot only to be left disappointed at the last minute.
THURSDAY nope.- stay tuned 2017! – as is often the case, swells slow down from the initial boost they get from a storm and tend to arrive 1 day later than forecast, because.. friction.
Tomorrow is looking large with no wind, ideal conditions for an epic competition and memorial.
You can get more info on the Eddie here and read about the history of this great man who devoted his life to the safety of others eventually being chosen by the spirit of the bay to inspire others forever through his own sacrifice.
Here’s how the forecast looks according to us: when red goes below blue, that means good surf, and that’s Weds and Thurs this week.. so here’s hoping for some good new soon.
