Eyeball surf reportRecent Eyeball Surf Reports for Nelson - Tasman Bay

  1. Good surf conditions on the Golden Bay West Coast early on Friday morning with clean shoulder high waves. The easterly wind slowly increased as the tide came in and made it choppy by noon and the swell dropped a bit too. Sunny but chilly air but the sea was unusually warm for the middle of May.
