Did you get in for peak day yesterday? From the look of buoy data, the Sydney region copped the bulk of the swell energy. This morning we still have some surf about thanks to around 2.5 metres of SSE swell with an average period of 10 seconds. Dee Why looked.s kinda lumpy and bumpy early and it’s definitely more setty than yesterday.
Outlook is for the swell to continue weakening as the day goes along. If the current trend line keeps moving in the same direction it has since the peak around noon yesterday, I’d say the average swell height will below the two metre mark by close of play. Meanwhile, it should be building up along the north coast.
The latest run of models is showing us drifting back into small and weak windswell conditions across the coming week or so. So I’d get out there and score a few today if you can.
Go well and catch a few fun ones!
