Spring is slowly starting to happen with some clean offshore surf and thumping swells last week – and there’s some great conditions on the way. 

There was a huge 4.5 metre ground swell running last Friday and Saturday with a super session had at Gracetown’s North Point.

Local young guns and pro surfers, Jack Robinson and Creed McTaggart were flying high with their aerial repertoire of moves and charging everything in sight.

The two native West Australians are talented free surfers in all sorts of conditions and North Point is one of the best (if not the best) training ground in the world with it’s hollow barrels and ideal end bowl ramp.

The two were putting on a show for the spectators with photographers all over the hill and drone cameras in the air.

Robinson and McTaggart share the same sponsor Billabong and get paid to travel and surf the best waves in the world.

We are sure to see much more of these riders in the future and hopefully permanently on the world tour for many years ahead.

Forecast:

There should be some NE winds early with a fun 1.7m swell.

The swell picks up to 2.1m on Friday with light onshore winds which should tend southerly later on.

Saturday turns clean offshore with SE winds and a rising 2.5m swell. Sunday also looks good with more offshore winds and a fading 1.8m swell.

Hotspot:

Smiths Beach on Saturday.
