Well, there may be a metre of SSE swell out at sea, but with an average period of around 8 seconds, there’s nothing much showing. No bods were in the water at Dee Why that I could see when I checked it out this morning. There were some people at North Narrabeen for some reason that wasn’t instantly obvious. I’d say the biggest sets were struggling to get into the waist high range.
Latest run of the models is less than inspiring. Basically it looks like small, short period mainly south swell across the next week for the Sydney region. Indeed, it seems that the whole east coast faces this baleful regime of smallness. I hope this doesn’t mean that spring is arriving early…
There are still some big systems in the southern ocean, but they just aren’t getting to us. You’d have a better chance across the Tasman. Mahia looks good Wed-Thr…
Oh well, keep on smilin’!
