If only the wind was offshore...

Hello Friends,

Not the most spectacularly interesting morning. 20kts of ESE wind has made it very junky at Dee Why – and pretty much everywhere else in Sydney. Swell is SE and averaging a touch over at 2 metres. The dominant period is around the 8 second mark, but there’s some 10 sec stuff in the mix and that’s providing the odd overhead bomb set.

Naturally there aren’t too many takers given the conditions. If you haven’t had a chance to get a wave all week and this is your only opportunity, I’d say go. It’s a mess, but the competition for the better ones will be minimal pretty much anywhere you go. Although I’ve no plans for it today, I like to jump into the water on days like this once in awhile just to remind myself that it’s possible to have fun even when it looks very ordinary from the beach.

Have yourself a top old Sunday!

Sydney Coastal Waters, Broken Bay to Port Hacking and 60nm seawards:
Sunday until midnight: Wind: SE 18/23 knots. Sea: 1.5 to 2 metres.Swell: SE 2 to 2.5 metres. Chance isolated thunderstorms.
Monday: Wind: E/SE 10/15 knots Sea: 1 to 1.5 metres.Swell: S/SE 2 to 2.5 metres.
Tuesday: Wind: E/NE 10/15 knots.

A few bods bodyboarding about in the messy conditions at Dee Why point.
