Sunny start and fun looking waves

Posted by: on April 9th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Lovely start to the day at Dee Why. 1.5 metres of 8-9s period SE swell and light wind under mainly clear skies delivering waist to shoulder plus wave faces at the point and along the beach at 0700.

Point looked moderately busy (a dozen or so on it) but the beachy was more lightly populated – no doubt due to the continuing high percentage of shutdowns.

It’s set to cloud up later and the wind call is for east to NE at 10-15 kts. Swell is due to cog down later as we head toward smaller conditions approaching the weekend. This morning’s long range models are predicting some fun size energy around late Saturday to early Sunday, and next week is shaping to be interesting in terms of swell, but less so on the wind front when it currently looks like lots of southerly wind…

Anyway, today the tide’s low at 1020 and back to high at 1635.

Keep on smilin’ everybody!
