Late arvo update: just don’t be picky

At around 330pm you could still get the odd little set wave.

Just a quick little update for our late afternoon visitors…

Wind is around to the N to NE at about 15 kts, so surface conditions aren’t as clean as this morning at most places. Average height of the SSE swell is around 1.5 metres and the period is bumping along at 8 seconds.

I was down Dee Why way around 330 this afternoon and noticed that there were still a few little peaks up the beach. Huey’s switched the point off, but if you aren’t too picky about surface conditions, don’t mind a wait for a set, and have the right equipment. Based on what I saw earlier today, I’d expect similar conditions to be on offer at Freshy, Curly, Northy, Cooks Tce, Mona Vale, Bungan, Newport… you get the picture – pretty much anywhere with exposure to south-ish energy.

Here’s the Bureau’s updated call:

Friday: Wind: SW/SE 10/15 knots, tending SE/NE 10/15 knots during the afternoon, NE 5/10 knots at night.Sea: 1 to 1.5 metres, abating to less than 1 metre at night. Swell: E/SE 2 to 2.5 metres decreasing to 1.5 to 2 metres later. 
Saturday: Wind: E/SE 10/15 knots. 
Sunday: Wind: SE/NE 10/20 knots.

The next three to four days look as though they’ll be a bit smaller than today, but, with luck, not actually flat. I reckon my fishy will be just the thing. What’re you planning to use?
