Smaller but not flat

You'll need something extra bouyant for the little point dribblers this morning.

Hello Friends,

It’s dropped a bit more than I’d expected this morning, but it’s not flat. Swell has moved around more to the SE, but it’s also about half a metre smaller on average than yesterday. Sets are into the chest high range at Dee Why beach and around the waist high mark (and less consistent) at the point.

Outlook is for the conditions to bumble along at about this level through today and tomorrow. With luck it won’t fade away altogether on Monday. On the current reckoning of the models, we should see a little uptick in quality around midweek. Doesn’t look as though it’ll be dramatic, but head high at exposed spots is a possibility for Weds.

Hope to grab a few snaps for you later today.
