I’d say we’re well into a holding pattern. This morning finds us with only a paltry metre of south windswell. There doesn’t seem to be anything at all showing in the corner at Dee Why, so I might make a quick circuit to see how it looks up the other end of the beach.
Well, as you can see, it was very small at Longy. But it was bigger there than around the corner at Collaroy. Windswell is weak and tiny, to put it mildly.
Outlook is for it to be small for the rest of the day. Might come up a touch tomorrow and we could possibly see some south energy on Thursday, building into the solidly surfable range on Friday. My fingers are crossed tight on this one boys and girls!
