Surf Report: May 2018

Weather: Clear skies, light variable winds with a few afternoon showers

Swell: Excellent conditions week to week. Not too many small days but then we've been surfing the beach break when its been small although only a handful of days under shoulder high. Mainly around head high & even up to double overhead on the peak of each swell. 

Waves: 2 to 6 ft and period between 12 to 17 sec.

Winds: Mostly light winds. Some westerly winds for the rights, some east winds for the lefts.

Best sessions: All the waves have had their days including Bagas, Rahasia, Pasti, Tantan, Tanggu and Tantras.

Crowd: Zero as always.

After thoughts: The Telos saw a number of swells throughout May. Crowds again have been non existent. The forecast is for plenty of medium sized waves for the next 10-14 days (see forecast model below):
