Sluggish Sunday

Posted by: on December 2nd, 2012

Hello Friends,

Quick report from me for now. Weak and dribbly again, but this time with 10-15 kts of south wind. High tide about 1010 and the wind is set to swing SE later. Occasional light showers and even the possibility of a thunderstorm this morning. Swell is showing at a metre from the SE and only 6 seconds apart. That says knee to waist high at best.

Not the greatest outlook for surf. So, I’ll head off to Manly soon to help out on the Surfrider stall at Ocean Care Day. Whatever your plans may be, I wish you well with them!
