Another morning of greyness and smallness. Wind is 10-20kts out of the SW, so it’s clean in the south corners. But the swell’s gone dead south. It’s averaging a touch under two metres at sea with an average period of just 7 seconds. The biggest wave I saw, indeed the only one in a little under 10 mins of watching, was the one I got the picture of. I think it’s reasonable to suppose that we’re looking at similar struggling-to-be-waist-high conditions pretty much every where in Sydney this morning.
Gotta run, so will be back later with a few thoughts on the outlook…
