Sticky: High keeness required

Bomb set

Hello Friends,

A sunny day coming up for Sydney with a summery high of around 27. Wind’ll be kicking up during the morning and building to 20-25 kts from the NE.

Dee Why beach was showing the very occasional waist high set a little before 0800. I expect that to continue as the tide drops and the wind picks up. By the time we get to the low at 1300, my hunch is that there won’t be too many surf options around the place, so go now or save it for the late. If yesterday is any guide, there could be some weak but up to shoulder high slop burgers at NE wind swell spots. Of course the wind’ll be a major factor.

I’m not seeing anything of interest in this morning’s swell models for Sydney. Again, looks as though we’ll be playing in lightweight wind swell for at least the next week.

Go well!
