Quite a bit smaller this morning, but not flat. Swell has shifted from the east to the SSE, dropped to about a metre and the power’s been dialled back to 9 seconds. Went out for a quick look around for you this morning (is that worth a pledge? 🙂 ). There were cute, perfectly formed but tiny shories at south Narrabeen and knee to waist dribblers up at Northy. Around the corner along the Dee Why to Longy stretch, the focal points for the energy out in front of the SLSC and up toward the pole were well populated with waves ranging from waist minus to chest-ish on the biggest ones. Waves everywhere look distinctly less energetic than yesterday, but the wind is offshore and skies are clear.
Water has cooled off to around 17 over the last few days, so most of us will be in the steamer.
Tide is high at 030 and low’s at 1440.
So, here we are on Friday, and the crowdfunding effort is just about at the halfway point with a little over half the target pledged. I’m working on a few things to (hopefully) get a few more folks like your very good self to join in. Gotta keep asking and will keep asking because I’m afraid if I let up all will be in vain. I’m even looking into dusting off the dreaded black screen of death (you old hands will know what that’s about, 🙂 ).
Have yourself a fantastic Friday and keep on smilin’ through!
A low pressure system east of Tasmania is moving slowly to the southeast. A cold front currently over inland south will cross eastern NSW during the day with strong westerly winds for southern and central parts of the coast. A weak high pressure system will move east across the state over the weekend.
