Wind? East of course!

Hello Friends,

Swell’s dropped a little overnight, but that east wind is still knocking the wind swell over. So if you want a wave, you’ll need to be pretty junk-tolerant – ’cause that’s all there is. Sets are maybe waist to chest at Dee Why as the tide was dropping to the low around 0930. The wind’s supposed to swing NE later, so that might open up a few options if we’re lucky.

Outlook according to this morning’s run of the models is for another week plus of onshores and mainly small wind swell waves. It seems that if you want a warm water wave, you should head north to the SE tolerant spots either side of the border. The monsoonal pattern is delivering a steady supply of energy up that way.

Patience my friends, patience; we all know the clean waves will come back again!

Keep on smilin’ and have a top old day.

Tides: L @ 0930 H @1525
