Surf arrives at Clarence Coast

TWO months of idle surf came to a halt on the Clarence Coast yesterday.

The surfing spot Angourie in the afternoon registered solid 1.829m (six foot) to 2.438m (eight foot) waves.

Surfers were out to make the most of the two- to three-metre swell that should stick around at the weekend.

“Everyone’s having a ball,” surf school teacher Jeremy Walters said.

“It’s been choppy with the wind and rain and this is the first clean day.”

He said this swell was typical of the North Coast in the summer months, with low pressure systems finding their way down on to our coastline.

Waves are forecast to continue to hold at ‘five to six foot-plus’ this morning.

Early light winds will bring the best conditions, with light to moderate onshores developing from mid-morning.

It is anticipated the improved conditions for board riders will be reinforced by the weather on Sunday.
