I’m back and although I’m pretty jet lagged, the waves are looking mighty sweet (never mind the murky brown water).
Swell has dropped radically since the weekend madness, but it’s still around the 2 metre mark from the SE with a nice healthy 12 sec period ensuring juice aplenty for the lucky folks who are on it. Sets look to be in the head plus range and pretty consistent at both the point and the beach at Dee Why. Crowds are pretty healthy too, which I guess isn’t a surprise given the morning offshore, clearing skies and school hols.
There should be some remnants again tomorrow and maybe Weds, but thereafter it looks like it will drop to just about nothing for a week or more – 🙁
Here’s the Bureau’s call…
