SSE wind of 15-20 kts, cloudy grey skies and a scrappy little south windswell struggling in to be greeted here and there by those flying the flag of stoke. And good on ’em says I. The waves at Dee Why are weak and not much above the thigh high mark as the tide comes in this morning. The Bureau says the southerly will moderate a little this afternoon and drop back overnight.
The latest run of the models seems to be lining up with the Goat’s call, ie Sunday morning looks the best shot for a wave. The long range outlook has gone pretty ordinary for us in the Sydney region. Another week of marginal at best conditions from the shape of the forecasts. Just maybe toward the end of next week things will turn around a little for us.
Have yourself a great Friday and go well with your plans and hopes!
