Swell seems to have backed off overnight up this way. Combined with an incoming tide, it meant that the keen folk in the water at the top of the point at Crescent were waiting a very long time for a bite at one and two wave knee high sets. And those mostly ran out of puff before they were even a third the way down the point.
Swell is perking along at a respectable 3 metres from the south with an average period around the 9 second mark, so I’d have to think that Sydney south swell spots should fire this morning. The Bureau is calling for south to south east wind, but it seems to have stayed SW into late morning.
So after a couple big cups of coffee and bacon-egg roll, it was time to head back out to the Pac Hwy and take the left for Sydney. We’re going to have a squiz at Wallaby on the way… just in case… ya never know, we might get lucky…
Not much showing on the swell forecast models this morning. Indeed it looks as though we could have an extended period of small to micro over the coming week.
Have a great Thursday!
