Really small, but not quite flat

Posted by: on May 12th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Just barely there this morning. But it was possible to jag the odd knee high wave with a mal up the beach from the DYSLSC. The MHL buoy shows 1.5 metres of 7 second period south wind swell and wind was light at 730. Surface was already textured though. If you’re going to find anything, it’ll have to be a real magnet spot for tiny south wind swell.

As it happens, I’m off on a long planned excursion up the coast for a few days. Not the best outlook for a wave, but it’s one of those schedule deals, so gonna make the best we can of what we get. As with Sydney, I’m not expecting to find much of anything today and tomorrow’s not looking flash either, but I am hoping the models are right about a brief little long period pulse for Wednesday. Actually, some interpretations of the data are projecting an improvement for Sydney by midday tomorrow – so maybe I’m being unduly pessimistic about prospects.

Have yourself a great Monday everyone!
