Very, very small, hardly there at all

Hello Friends,

Is your voter rego up to date? You’ve got until 8pm tonight to get your signed rego in. Here’s the AEC link. I liked the person on the radio who said, enroll to vote or your parents will decide who should run the country. 😉 Not sure if your rego is up to date? Check it here.

Okay, important stuff out of the way, now some more important stuff. My first morning back on the northern beaches, so I had a bit of a drive around to see what was what.

First stop was Warriewood. No one in the water there because the swell is just too weak and small. There were a few bods in the water at Cooks and another few up at Mona. In both cases the quality was okay, but it was struggling to make waist high. The sort of waves you go for when there’s pretty much nothing else on the to do list and you fancy getting wet for the exercise.

Next stop was over the hill at Northy. A touch better than the previous two, but nothing extraordinary as the small crowd confirmed.

Last stop was Longy where I got a snap of a couple standups messing about near the lagoon entrance and spotted a cute empty set wave down toward No Mans. There were maybe half a dozen bods between there and Dee Why, but as with elsewhere this morning, it’s inconsistent and bumping along at just above flatness.

If they have it right, the latest run of surf forecasts call for on again-off again 1-2 metre south swell. Nothing too great though because a lot of it is going to be short period stuff. Tomorrow arvo looks the best shot for south spots atm…

Have a great day!
