Sticky: This is summer?

Posted by: on December 2nd, 2011

Hello Friends,

Spitting grey skies and 15-20 kts of southerly – doesn’t seem very summery to me. There’s a 6 second period south wind swell of about two metres at sea. It’s maybe chest high on the very biggest ones at exposed spots, but the wind is really working it over,  so there was almost nobody in the water at Dee Why. I couldn’t spot any takers on the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch. It was micro on the north side of Long Reef, but if you were really desperate, there might be a little ankle snapper at south Narrabeen.

The southerly looks like lasting pretty much through into the new week.

Hang in there everybody. Huey will return one day so keep on smilin’!

Tides: L @ 0720 H @1330
