I should have posted this a week or so ago (when I started the long range outlook), but I am currently forecasting for the Bells Beach Easter Classic and have a very detailed outlook that is being updated every night. I much prefer to do it this way, however for general Swellnet purposes I just don't normally have the time to go into this much detail for SA and Vicco. But for these comps I have made an exception smile

With a very large swell expected to hit tomorrow, it's looking like Bells will turn it on for the rest of the week too. All feedback most appreciated smile

Hello Thermalben,

I have been looking at the charts very closely for the last 3-4 days and its certaintly looking good.Even NSW,should get solid swell from Wednesday onwards.You have got a brilliant report there,and your whole website is great.Lets hope some morning offshores can eventuate for the Bells Beach Easter Classic.

Hi Pingtang

Thanks for the nice words smile I have just finished tonight's analysis; it's still looking like an incredible swell event for the next few days. Sustained SW winds around 55-75kts for the past 24 hours in the Southern Ocean will have whipped up an enormous sea state - lets hope the contestants have got their big boards with them!!

The new report should be online soon. Also, I archive all my forecasts - they are located on the top right hand corner of the page.

:cheers: Ben
