Nice morning with little bumps

Hello Friends,

Interesting little bumps showing at Dee Why on a sunny and cool spring morning. Not much wind about and there was an incoming tide to help push the south swell bump along. The MHL buoy was showing 2 metres from the south at 9-10s. And yet I only spied a single person in the water at the Dee Why end of the beach. He was puttering around at the point and didn’t catch anything while I watched, but it looked like there was the potential for a chest high set.

So, it might be worth a squizz at your fave south swell spot this morning before the NE sea breeze gets going.

Outlook is for the energy levels to gradually sputter out to flatness by the weekend. This morning’s wave prediction models are showing not much of anything in our near future. The southern ocean is still very active, with lots of energetic systems in the roaring 40’s but they’re all avoiding our swell window for now.

Get out there and enjoy!
