Not a lot going on at the beach this morning, but you could get the odd knee to waist high thing if you’re in the right spot at the right time. Swell is out of the ESE at about 10 seconds apart. It’s showing about a metre out at sea, but there aren’t too many metre high wave faces around the place. There were a few such up the beach from Dee Why and it looked from the crowd as though there were similar things going on at Northy. Tide is low at 0820, so you’d want to get on it soon because once it comes back in, I’d be surprised if anywhere would be surfable.

International Surfing Day is a worldwide celebration of the sport of surfing and the protection of our ocean, waves and beaches.
Surfrider encourages surfers and ocean enthusiasts to stand up and realise the connection between the sport they enjoy and the protection of our environment. If surfers don’t take action about the waves and beaches they surf and love, who will?
So what can you do this International Surfing Day?
Surfrider is a grassroots organisation and we’d love to see our local supporters getting involved and celebrating International Surfing Day!
