Sticky: Did you like yesterday?

Hello Friends,

As far as the MHL buoy off Sydney’s concerned, this morning is pretty much exactly the same as yesterday, ie swell is out of the east at a touch under 2 metres and the average period is about 10 seconds. The breeze was light and from the NW to begin with. The Bureau says it’ll swing north east this afternoon and get up to 15-20 kts. Postively summery. Speaking of summery, yesterday I managed to get in the water for an hour or so at Manly. As I crossed the beach I noticed there were a few blueys along the high tide line…

The outlook is for the swell to continue at more or less the current level through tomorrow, so it could well be worth a look at the east spots. Dee Why was showing a little something, but it was struggling to get to chest high. I reckon the more exposed spots should be producing the odd bigger one than that.

Outlook for the coming week is for a spring-like stretch of tiny to flat conditions. There are still some juicy looking lows coming through the southern ocean in the long range forecasts. However it looks like the energy will be deflected away from our swell window by continental high pressure systems. Fiji or NZ might be a better bet, or Vicco possibly.

Have yourself a top old Thursday and keep on smilin’!

TIDES: L @1025, H @1700
