Magic Seaweed have a page on measuring wave height.
They reckon there were surfers calling this day 4 foot. Happily, there are no wrong answers.

From Coastalwatch, good story from Tom Carroll about being 12 years old and being unexpectedly tasked with taking MP surfing.

That's more like a solid six to eight foot.

Some questions on Tassie.

Planning a trip there in October. Mix of surfing and nature/sightseeing.

Board size is limited to 6'0 only as Jetstar only allow for 6'2 incl. board bag. - therefore board size dictating a viable upper-limit of wave size as being a stormy/shifty 5-6 ft, or super-clean-and-orderly 6-8ft, then right down to 1 ft peelers.

Will surf either/all sides of the island, as I'll hire a campervan.

So. Given the upper reaches of wave size I'll be able to tackle, and the season (spring) - where are the "must surf" or "keep a watch on" spots that I should be focusing on. ?

(( Yes, the fun is in discovering for yourself and all that - but I've only got a week, so I don't want to waste time scoping out the whole island either. ))

Also, the "must sees" for natural beauty etc. ?

Any help appreciated.

Was supposed to be in Tassie this weekend but had to go to a funeral. Put off till November. Too cold for me unless perfect and with a 3-4ml wetsuit boots and hood.

Hatchnam, maybe you could put your enquiry in Ask Braithy.

Braithy will be your best bet, but we went there a couple of years back. Just tourist stuff. Absolutely beautiful place. Obvious stuff. Cradle Mountain (walk around the lake). Freycinet Peninsula. Great beaches, not just Wineglass Bay. Stanley. Port Arthur area. Do the night tour.

Pretty much the same. More wind chill though.
