Choppy and micro

Posted by: on August 23rd, 2012


Hello Friends,

A windy and tiny day coming up for Sydney.Only a metre of NE wind swell dribbling in. Dee Why isn’t showing anything in the way of a wave and the ocean is looking choppy under clear but hazy skies. Much warmer too this morning as spring announces its imminent arrival.

Another day for other things I’d say.

Outlook on this morning’s batch of swell forecasts is not good. It would seem that the next hope of anything surfable turning up is sometime early next week.

Keep on smilin’, we all know it’ll come good again!

Tides: L @0550, H @1220
