Eyeball surf reportRecent Eyeball Surf Reports for Nelson - Tasman Bay

  1. A bit sloppy and breezy first thing but the swell built to about shoulder-high faces and the wind swung offshore light East. A grey day, but warm water.
    from Schnappers Point, 24 km away
  2. Well worth the long walk down the beach from the rivermouth. The ESE wind was light and offshore here and there were shoulder-high+ sets after mid tide. Good quality considering it was a soft 9s swell day.
    from Delaware Bay (East end), 32 km away
  3. The point was a bit small and sloppy at low tide with 2 guys out. Mostly about waist to chest high. The force 4 easterly breeze here was not helping and the swell built a bit late for the tide. Mid-tide was cleaner and a bit bigger as the wind went SE.
    from Delaware Bay Point, 30 km away
  4. A few out at high tide but it was only knee to waist high. Cleanish waves with a light west breeze here. Warm water.
    from Rabbit Island, 7 km away
