Running very, very late this morning… apologies. Surf situation along the northern beaches continues along much the same lines as yesterday, ie waves in the waist to chest high range with the odd bigger one. Not much of any wind as of 1000, but it is due to swing to the NE this afternoon.
Swell is now out of the east at a couple metres with a power setting of 8 seconds. What this means for Dee Why is that there are some amusing looking things folding over and running both directions in the general vicinity of where the fabled super peak has been for the past month or so. There were a couple folks at the point, but it seemed pretty weak and small. East swell and the point really don’t get along all that well together.
Outlook remains for the energy levels to gradually fade as we go into the weekend and then to be pretty small and weak through Sunday. The models are showing a small, but longer period south to SE pulse filling in Monday morning. With luck that will translate into waves of similar size to this morning’s conditions.
Next tide is a low at 1127.
Go well one and all!
