Fading in the heavy rain

Posted by: on June 11th, 2012

Hello Friends,

Visibility from the RealSurf crow’s nest is maybe 500 metres as I write this around 0900, so no pictures from me. yet.

The MHL buoy is showing about two metres of 8 second period SE swell. That’s about the same size as yesterday for the swell, but the period is now 20% shorter and therefore I’d expect the wave heights to be struggling to make chest high at spots picking it up.

The rain is expected to back off by late this afternoon, so it looks like a day to play inside.

Tomorrow should see the late arrival of what is currently shaping to be a 2-3 day pulse of fun size east swell. With luck we’ll have something to play on in the head high range at spots that like the swell direction.

Go well with your rainy day Sydneysiders!
