At least it’s not raining and overcast. Apart from that though, there’s not a lot to get excited about for Sydney surfers. The wind swell is still coming from the SE as it has the last few days, but it’s only about 1.5 metres out at sea and the period is on average about 7-8 seconds. There’s some longer period component in the mix, but I wasn’t convinced I could see it when I checked out Dee Why to Longy and the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch.
Wind is SE 10-15 kts as I write this a little after 0800. It’s set to work around to the NE but to stay at about the same (chop-inducing) velocity.
The models are still showing an influx of longer period south swell from late tonight. It’s currently expected to last through Saturday morning, but as I indicated yesterday, it’s really not looking like doing anything very spectacular for us.
Ah well, at least we’re heading into the best time of year for surf!
Have yourself a top old day.
