Hope you got in for one yesterday because she’s looking pretty, but unsurfably micro this morning at Dee Why. Yesterday’s pulse faded quickly during the morning and it’s now back to about a metre at sea and 9 seconds apart. There might still be a little bump at perfectly angled stretches, but mostly there be next to nothin’. Wind is not a factor at the moment, but by this afternoon it’ll be back to a brisk NE’ly.
This morning’s swell models are lining up on the prospect of a south pulse for this weekend, but they’re not as interesting looking as earlier in the week. It still seems likely that we’ll see some very long period component, but the wind factor is less than fabulous in those same forecasts. Put me in the cautious, but realistically hopeful column this morning.
Have yourself a great Wednesday!
