Tasmania: waves are huge here

Sydney surfers are expecting huge waves to hit the shore during the weekend, as a low pressure system passes by Australia.


The four-metersoutherly swell will hit the coast and everyone is expecting six to eight foot waves in the coastal city.

Beginners should not paddle in, as they might get caught in the building sets. Meanwhile, Tasmania is recording 10-to-18-metre waves, in one of the biggest weeks ever.

In 1985, a wave of 19.83 meters was recorded during a storm in the west coast of this region. Check out the Wave Height Forecast for Australia.
