First crew into the water this morning were greeted with head high to 1.5x overhead wave faces at Dee Why point. The swell has dropped overnight and will continue to do so, but the waves should last all day, indeed, there should still be something in the tank tomorrow.
It’s not a day for beginners, but if you’re in reasonable shape and confident in overhead conditions, there should be many fun options around the place thanks to the SSE direction of the 3 metre, 10 sec swell.
Hope to get out and about with the camera later…
Go well with your day!

A low pressure system lies over the eastern Tasman Sea and a high south of Tasmania extends a ridge to the north over western NSW. Between these systems, a cold south to southwesterly airstream lies over eastern NSW. Both systems are expected to weaken over the next couple of days and move slowly east.
