The conditions could hardly be better. Sparkling day after yesterday’s grey and rain. But if you’re looking for a wave, you’ll be needing something pretty floaty. There’s only a tiny E- ESE windswell showing along the beaches of Sydney. The most exposed spots are just barely producing waist high sets. And there are long stretches of smooth water in every direction.
There were only two or three folks in the water between the pole and Dee Why, a little clutch up toward Marquesas and the usual contingent at Northy.
Wind is set to go around to the SE this afternoon. It’s due to be into the 20-25 kt range, so just maybe it’ll push some junky little things in for us by around lunch time tomorrow. I’d be hoping for waist high or a touch bigger at low tide at south-east facing spots.
