With the forecast calling for south wind this morning, your correspondent decided to make an early start on the day. I checked the Warriewood to Mona stretch first. Not super fabulous, it has to be said. The little windswell is mostly in the knee high range but here and there, depending on the current state of the tide, you might find a little peak focusing. However, the southerly isn’t going to do a lot to help things, surface-wise. Judging from the buoy data coming in from down at Eden and Batemans Bay, there is reason to think that we’ll also get an uptick in the south swell over the course of the day.
About the best I saw early was a sort of complex of peaks from carparks North. Quite a few bods on it, but as we got closer to 0900, more and more folks had to peel off to attend to other obligations. I sampled a few myself and can report that the water was beautiful.
On the way back to the office I swung into Longy for a squizz at happenings. No south swell energy apparent, but the wind was chopping up the knee high froth for a couple mal riders up the north end. From there south to the single surfer waiting hopefully in front of the DYSLSC there was not another person in the water.
Ok, gonna post this and then have a look at the latest run of the models for ya…
