For surfers, the map shows the most powerful swell tracking across near-shore open water and not the peak waves experienced by boats out at sea.

  1. There was more going on than just the 2.2m groundy. The shorter period swell from yesterday was still in the mix.. Some overhead sets breaking up to several hundred meteres outside the bay but also flattish spells. The westerly breeze added some chop at the take-off rock and some of the bigger and better waves were breaking dangerously wide of the bay taking you beyond the last exit so overall it was not all that great.

Eyeball Nelson West Coast Surf Reports are sent in by surfers living or working at the Nelson West Coast surf breaks. We don't publish reports from secret spots and reporters send in wave reports from more popular or indicator breaks to help their local surf community. If you are often in Nelson West Coast and want to get involved we can publish your surf reports anonymously or provide free publicity for your business.
