What a corker of a morning. Shame about the utter lack of waves.
Wandered around the joint for a look at the direness and I can tell you that you will need to ramp up the keeness to hysterical levels if you’re going to talk yourself into chasing waves. It looks like a pool most places, but there are a few tiny, weak little peaks flipping over something barely catchable. There was one such at Freshie, another at south Curly and possibly one way up the beach toward No Man’s on the Dee Why to Longy stretch. Bomb sets are maybe into the thigh high range.
Water seems to be warming up and we’re heading to a high of 29 with a 60% chance of a storm later.
Today’s run of the forecast interpretations contains little of hope for Sydney surfers. We’re looking at another week of these micro conditions – at least.
So, go for a swim or a wander along the beach, grab the snorkelling gear, wet a line, but don’t get too hopeful about carving across a clean wall any time soon.
Go well with your Tuesday!
A slow-moving high pressure system over the northern Tasman Sea extends a ridge to the New South Wales north coast. This pattern will change little until Thursday, when a cold front is expected to bring a southerly change to much of the coast.
