Afternoon update:

Mid-morning: sunny skies, not much wind and waves.

Did you get in this morning? Definitely some fun ones around the place. Pretty solid at exposed spots actually. My surf destination was Longy, but it could have easily been any number of other places thanks to the SE swell direction. According to the latest data, the swell is currently averaging a couple metres at sea, but thanks to an average period of nearly 12 seconds, there are bomb sets with wave faces getting closer to the 3 metre mark. The wind has now settled into a typical afternoon seabreeze, ie out of the NE at 10-15kts or so.

If you haven’t managed to get a taste of the swell yet, I’d consider making an effort this afternoon or tomorrow morning because it looks from the swell prediction models as though it’s going to fade steadily and could be pretty much gone by the time Saturday morning arrives.

From earlier this morning:

0650: rather attractive beachy at DY

Pretty clean looking this morning. Solid looking sets at the beachy and the point too. Wind is set to be pretty reasonable too, as the Bureau puts it: Wind: W/NW 8/13 knots, tending NE in the afternoon, then S/SE change 20/25 knots at night, easing to 15/20 knots quickly.Sea: 1 to 1.5 metres, rising 1.5 to 2 metres at night. Swell: S 2 to 2.5 metres.
