Sticky: Small Sunday, but not flat Sunday

Set wave

Sputtering

Hello Friends,

Small ESE swell of about a metre at 11 seconds is delivering the odd chest high set for the patient many bobbing about along Dee Why beach.

Wind was light early but is expected to pick up from the north as the day goes along so conditions at many spots will turn sideshore. Next tide’s a high at 1240, so the plan is definitely to hit it early before the tide and wind combo messes things up.

Outlook generally is for energy levels to bumble along at around these levels through to mid-week – and likely beyond.

So get out and enjoy it!
