Dropped but still looking fun

Posted by: on June 17th, 2013

Good start to the morning

Smaller one sneaks in

Hello Friends,

Get a wave at the weekend? There were plenty of options around and Monday morning sees more of the same – although the swell is definitely smaller and less consistent. On the other hand, this morning at any rate, it looked clean and in the fun shoulder to head plus range (given the 10 second period and 3 metre average height at sea, I’d expect a few bombs in the mix though).

Wind is westerly as the day kicks off by will go SW and according to the Bureau it should back off a bit toward lunch time. Tide will be high at 1445.

As we all know, the energy for this swell is coming from a very slow moving low pressure system and as a consequence we can expect solid waves all week.

Winter is here!

Speaking of the seasons, I hope you’ve cleared the decks for the first surfrider winter solstice jam this Thursday night at Deck Bar in Dee Why. Tunes, tubes and talkin’ surf. It’ll be the highlight of the surfing social season no doubt. It’s only $20 bucks in and you get a couple drinks and finger food for your ticket. Speaking of which, leaving it until the night to buy your ticket isn’t the best idea. Best to book online now
