Got in for a wave this morning at Dee Why. I spent most of the time at the point where sets were in the chest to head plus range. It wasn’t classic, punchy Dee Why point, but it was definitely a lot of fun – even with close to 20 out by the time I pulled the plug. PB and mate Barry surfed the lefts in the beachy out in front of the club and both scored some very fun waves.
Hope you did as well!
Here’s a snap from the sesh at the point

In a rush this morning, so will keep it brief.
Go surfing if you can!
Swell is averaging 2 metres from the SE with a healthy 11 second period. There will be waves everywhere. Sets at Dee Why beach are well overhead. The point is smaller and less consistent, but there should be some shoulder high plus ones there from time to time as well.
Will try to follow up later…
