Down another notch, but not flat

Posted by: on April 1st, 2014

Hello Friends,

Another beautiful morning in Sydney. Light wind and glassy little waves were on offer for Dee Why folk. Nothing amazing, but definitely the odd waist plus wave face rolling in thanks to a metre of 8 second period SE swell. A few people were in the water chasing the occasional section – and if you were on a SUP – finding the odd diversion. The wind’ll be out of the NE later, but there should be gentle conditions for this morning.

Tide’s high at 0935 and back to low at 1520.

Outlook is for these conditions to more or less prevail through Friday and then it looks as though we might get an uptick for the weekend. Nothing too spectacular looking, but good to see the prospect of something fun for the weekend warriors in our tribe. The latest long range outlook is encouraging too. Again, no real giant swell events in the offing, but it does seem as though there should be a steady supply of waves in the waist to chest plus range through to mid April. Hope those models are right!

Have yourself a top old Tuesday one and all!

He got a long slide outta this one.

Lots of shutdowns, but the odd glassy section to be had.
