Heaps of swell pushing in this morning – and lots of people to greet it too. Dee Why is seeing a steady supply of bomb sets thanks to the 3m+ 11 second SSE swell. Wave faces on the bigger catchable ones are into the 10 foot range. Surface conditions are a bit messy but the main drama is those bomb sets. The large crowd is doing a fair amount of duck diving to hold position as they wait for something that’s not shutting down. The beachy is mostly shutdowns, but unless I’m hallucinating, there seem to be a few peaks trying to take shape as the swell starts cutting some gutters.
Swell looks set to peak about midday and then to fade back to smaller, but not flat, conditions tomorrow morning. After that it looks like more typical summery smallness.
Go well with your day!
Tide high at noon.
