Weakening weekend waves

Hello Friends,

Beaurtiful Sunday morning as I wandered into the RealSurf wheelhouse this morning. The view from the crow’s nest was more or less what I expected, namely inconsistent waist to chest plusses and many fine folk in the water chasing them. Looks as though the more buoyant your choice of equipment this morning, the better. Swell is showing on the MHL buoy as being out of the southern quarters at about 9 seconds apart with an average height of 1.5 metres. Dee Why was looking a bit smaller to me than those numbers would suggest it should. But it’s on high tide and the numbers were a couple hours old. Outlook is for swell energy to gradually fade and for the NE’r to pick up later. Freakishly summer like.
