Nice winter’s morning in Sydney. About a metre and a half of inconsistent but very clean – if chilly – early. Wind should be light and variable today and this morning we’re looking at an incoming tide. It’ll be high at just before noon, so optimal surf will likely be early and then from mid-afternoon onward.
Sets are in the waist to chest range and the waits are long. Swell’s getting into most places this morning too.
So get out there and have yourself some fun!
ps: looks like we should have little waves for the next week!
Tides: H @1150, L @1750
