Sticky: South wind, but some bumps for the keen

Hello Friends,

Mix of east and south swell this morning under gloomy skies. The surface is a bit chopped up but since it’s coming from the SSW at 15-20 kts, the bump wasn’t that bad at Dee Why this morning.

The wind will probably go more around to the south as we head toward noon. Tide hits high around 1130 and then will be back to the low at 1630. Protected south corners should be the go as the swell is supposed to steadily increase. At 0800, the sets were getting to around chest high at the point. They seemed to be a bit smaller at the beach, but I only sussed it out for a few minutes today, so your mileage may vary.

I’m really liking the look of tomorrow. Should be solid east swell with mostly clear skies and light winds early, plus an incoming tide…

Keep on smilin’!
