Tide was high at 0700 and the MHL buoy was reporting a touch over a metre of 6 second period NE wind chop. Skies were clear and there was a light WNW breeze.
Where Dee Why’s concerned, this all means that there wasn’t enough going on to attract more than one or two punters for the early.
This morning’s forecast models are largely in agreement that the next few days will be pretty small. Standout NE spots could have a little waist high set now and again, but that’s about it. Looking out at the furthest reaches of the forecasts, there are currently indications that we could have a long period south swell around this time next week. So, fingers crossed!
Have yourself a top old Friday!
