The south pulse that filled in from late yesterday is still here this morning. However it seems to have peaked in the early morning hours at around the three metre mark. It’ll probably be around two metres by mid-morning and looks set to continue to gradually decrease. Average period is close to the 9 second mark, so south swell exposed spots should be showing fun size head high to head high plus sets. Wind is SW and set to fade toward lunch before swinging south for the afternoon session.
Reasonable number of bods in the water at Dee Why this morning, but not insane for a Saturday. Bit of a wait between the chest to shoulder high plus sets and lots of shutting down going on in the beachies.
I’ll be getting out and about with a camera later, so with luck should have a few more shots to share in due course.
General outlook isn’t too hopeless for the week ahead but this morning could be the peak in terms of size and quality. With luck though, there’ll be a reason to get in the water if you’re keen pretty much right through to midweek thanks to what currently looks to be a steady supply of 1-1.5m south to south east swell – at least if the WAMs are to be believed.
Get out there and have yourself a great day.
