The waiting game continues

Beach waiting for swell

The day gets going

Hello Friends,

I’m calling it 1 out of 10 at Dee Why. Maybe I shouldn’t be so harsh though. Just because it’s almost perfectly flat, doesn’t mean it’s such a bad day at the beach. You could go for a walk or a swim or get out the SUP and have a paddle around. Skies are mainly clear and there was a light NE sea breeze ruffling the sea.

The MHL buoy off Sydney is recording a faint NE wind swell of about a metre at just 5 seconds apart. It’ll be a real challenge to catch that stuff.

This morning’s forecast is calling for a day like yesterday and a tomorrow like today – ie tiny east swell and an afternoon NE’r.

Tide is high at 0835 and low at 1510.

Have a top old day!
