Folks aplenty chasing waves at Dee Why beach on Sun morning.

Hello Friends,

Sunday started in fine form. Light winds and a little SE windswell greeted the early risers. At Dee Why what appears to be the sole peak was well occupied. Folks were catching waves with faces into the chest high range. I’d guess those bigger ones were the 10 sec period sets.

According to the models, the trend is likely to be downward through the day, so your best shot is to get out early I’d say. Given the SE direction, there ought to be little waves to be had at most beaches in Sydney this morning.

It’s looking like we’re in for a week of tiny to flat conditions, so you might want to add that factor to your calculations as well…

Have yourself a great Sunday!
