Scarborough and Cayton Bay Surf Forecast  (Last updated: Wednesday 20th June )

Looks like we will get a fresh pulse of NNW swell on Thursday.  Small Thursday morning but likely to start increasing rapidly late morning onwards folks. The surf will increase further for friday potentially opening up the bigger wave spots along the coast. Saturday and Sunday also looking good with more quality conditions as the winds fall very light. All in all a pretty good run of surf looks to be on its way folks !!!!

Small at dawn but building through the day. Could well be 3-4 feet by nightfall. Looks to be strong cross shore winds the first half of the day but conditions could well improve towards the end of the day as the wind drops in strength. Local knowledge is key here as a few spots later in the day could throw a few suprises 

NNW 2 feet early building quickly later NW 18 - 20 mph dropping later 11.25 5.1m 0.00 5.1m
Friday 22cnd June

The surf will have built rapidly through thge night. Some wave models have surf heights at around 2.5 metres. Certainly points to being pretty solid and sizey, and could well wake up the bigger wave locations that are normally doormant this time of the year .Friday evening could indeed be very good as the winds fall very light later on !!!

NW 4-6 feet NW 15 -20 mph becoming calm by nightfall 12.15 5.0m 12.33 5.1m
Saturday 23rd June

Saturday looks to be the quality day of the forecast period folks. Excelent 3-4 feet of lined up clean surf is what is currently forecasted. Could be a very good day of surfing opening up many spots along the coast today. Any changes we will update on here but at the moment its looking very good indeed !!!

NW 3-4 feet NW Calm - variable 2-5 mph 1.20 5.0m 1.41 5.0m
Sunday 23rd June

A smaller day of clean surf as the swell starts to trend down.The best conditions will undoubtedly be from first light to lunch time before the swell starts dropping off steadily through the day. Likely 2 feet + at dawn dropping fast later in the day. The early bird catches the worm here folks.

NW 2 feet + first light dropping through the day W 4-6 mph 2.20 5.0m 2.40 5.1m
