The Bureau says the swell will be dropping away as the day unfolds, but it shouldn’t be flat or anything. As of 0700 there were solid overhead wave faces along the beach at Dee Why with maybe a touch smaller at the point. Wind is set to be light across the day too. Swell is out of the SSE at 2 metres with an average period of about 11 seconds. At 0600 the MHL data from Eden was showing slightly smaller numbers, so I’d say that means energy all day.
Tide was low at 0605 and will be high at 1205.
Should be sunny all day and getting up to 24. Not bad.
By tomorrow the swell will be just about gone, but I’m hoping the morning sesh will offer an option or two. Thereafter it’s shaping to be near flat to flat until maybe next Friday (according to at least one model monger). So get in and have fun asap because our long run of swell won’t last much longer.
