Just on dusk the swell popped up from near flat to chest+ thanks to a SE pulse of a couple metres at about 9 seconds apart. Unfortunately there was a steady ESE onshore, so it was very junky at Dee Why – and everywhere else I bet. From the look of the buoy data off to the south, the pulse will not last long. Here’s hoping there’s something left for tomorrow morning. Tide’ll be coming in to a 0950 high.
The BoM’s call:
