When did the change come through your place last night? It hit Warringah shire around 1250 according to my alarm clock. It’s pushed up the swell a reasonable amount, but the direction is of course the same as the wind. So, that means the biggest stuff is where the onshores are strongest.
I couldn’t see any sign of people in the water when I climbed up into the crows nest for a look at Dee Why earlier this morning. From the look of it, the sets are probably into the head high range up the beach. The point is sideshore and beaten up enough not to have attracted any punters for the early.
By the look of the forecast models, this is as big as it’ll get for the coming week. The prospect is for small (and getting smaller) short period windwaves over the work week in Sydney. As the SE weakens today, the windswell will drop with it, so if you’re extra keen, you’d better get out there asap.
Have yourself a top old day!
