Stumbled through the wheelhouse door late this morning, as is my wont on a Sunday. Climbed aloft for a quick look at the unfolding day. Small crowd is hanging around at the southern end of the Dee Why longy stretch. A few are over at the point. Conditions are sorta lumpy and disorganised looking, but at 0930 there wasn’t too much wind about. Swell settings are essentially unchanged in Sydney since yesterday. Energy is coming from the east at a couple metres and about 8-9 seconds apart. Wind is a light northerly.
Not super crowded at the Dee Why end when I grabbed the snap. Seemed to be quite a wait for the sets though. A few dribbling through at the point too, but I reckon you’ll want to be keen to chase those.
There should be a few options on offer this morning. Once the N-NE wind builds up, they’ll contract to the semi protected north corners. Tide’s dropping and will hit low at 1216 in Sydney.
Not too many surf report tweets this morning, but there was one from a T-shirt artist in in Santa Monica who says: “Malibu 1-2 feet.” He tweets at twitter.com/aSURFmoment
