Fizzling out, get on it ASAP

Posted by: on September 15th, 2012

Hello Friends,

With onshores on the forecast today, the plan is/was to get down to your favourite south swell spot immediately. At Dee Why the early risers were picking up the occasional chest high set along the beach. A pair of SUPsters were poking around the point in search of a little roller along the rocks.

When the wind arrives later, I’d say the number of surf options will shrink to not much of anything. The models are showing the swell getting a little kick from the wind change, so, with any luck tomorrow morning will offer a few fun options at south spots.

The week ahead looks pretty dribbly according to this morning’s models. With any luck there’ll be a little something for the early most mornings though.

There’s plenty of activity in the southern ocean on the forecasts, but being spring time, it’s all staying away from the east coast swell window.

So it goes. Enjoy what we have says I!

Tide is high at 0730 and low at 1320.
