April 9 surf report
The wind was blowing lightly out of the south this morning. We sent two boats out in the morning looking to see if the forecasted southwest swell had arrived. The first boat ended up at Nipusi after seeing a boat at Hideaways. It was overhead at Nipusi with a slight onshore wind, but no one was out and it was fun. The second boat made a sharp left turn after seeing a waves peel across the reef at Kanduiâ€™s. It wasnâ€™t that big out there, only a little overhead on the sets, but it was a good taste of what it is like to surf out there for our crew who had never been lucky enough to score it. After a short session there, we were off to Nipusi ourselves. There was nobody out and the swell seemed to be building a bit and it was well overhead on the sets there by the time we left. After a quick lunch, we were back in the boat and heading for Bankvaults. It was a little lined up, but no one out and fun. A few of the guys surfed Nipusi where it was overhead as well and no one out. Hoping our little swell hangs around until a bigger swell arrives possibly as early as tomorrow afternoon.
8th April surf report
We had a weather switch today. The winds were swirling around this morning and there were thunder storms around. No one was in a hurry to look for surf, especially because this weekâ€™s forecast showed today being the smallest day. After a few cups of coffee though, a few guys got restless and we got a boat together for them. As they were leaving, a particularly strong thunderstorm came through and it was windy and pouring rain, and we thought they were nuts. But as they were pulling around to Beng Beng, they found that the winds were offshore and no one was around! They surfed for hours and came back with ear to ear, â€œyou missed itâ€, grins! In the afternoon, the guys that missed the morning session and a couple iron men that surfed all morning, went to Bankvaults to see what was going on. It was pretty glassy there and there was a still some swell left or our new swell was starting to show, because the sets were going 2 or 3 feet overhead. It was a little inconsistent, but everybody caught waves and went back happy. We are hoping for a little southwest swell to fill in tomorrow.
