Murky skies and murkier surf prospects

Posted by: on November 26th, 2012

Hello Friends,

Energy levels continue at a low ebb along the east coast this morning. From Eden to Byron the buoy data is showing no more than a metre of short period wind swell. Here in Sydney the average period is weak 7 seconds on a sub-metre ENE swell.

Consequences? As my picture shows, there’s nothing remotely surfable at Dee Why. I suppose you might find a little knee high set wave at places such as Curly, Manly, North Narra or Whaley. But you’ll want to go early because the onshores will be into it by late morning.

The forecast models are still sucking lemons. If they’re right, we have another week or more of this nonsense to endure. There might be a few little knee high things off and on, but solid swell and the east coast don’t look like being in the same present tense sentence for awhile yet.

Have yourself a great Monday!
