Wind was light and out of the north for early risers as a small east wind swell made its slight presence felt. Meanwhile, up the coast the energy levels are ramping up and the promise of sizable swell for Boxing Day in Sydney looks good from my vantage point on the other side of the planet.
Byron Bay’s showing 3 metres at 9 seconds with a stiff ESE wind and showers. By tomorrow the NE’ly wind will be going pretty well in Sydney and the swell should be around the 3 metre mark from the east. It’s due to move more NE in the following 24 hours, but the wind’ll be going pretty hard with it if the forecast is right.
So, not the best conditions, but at least it won’t be flat like it is here in southern California. Our forecast is for continued small to tiny right across the next week. If I had a thick enough wetsuit, I’d think of going up north where the winter swell energy is doing its thing…
Have yourself a great day with family and friends!
