Cool and grey along the beaches this morning, but there are some little ESE windwaves to be had. As the pictures show, it’s not very big, but there are waist to chest high sets for the reasonably large number of keen punters up for the early at Dee Why.
With luck the winds should stay light through the morning before gradually swinging around to a junk-inducing ESE. Tide is high mid-morning, so unfortunately it will be getting fatter until about the time the wind junk takes over – and the windswell fades a bit.
Oh well, guess you better go quick.
Outlook for tomorrow is for it to be pretty marginal, but with luck not quite flat. Swell should stay basically out of the same ESE direction through the weekend.
