A couple of metres of 10 sec period SSE swell and lightish mainly westerly wind are playing nice with Dee Why point (on the sets). Tide’s heading to high at 1130. The beachy seems to just be lined up shutdowns. Could be better up the Longy end… wave faces at the point are ranging from waist high between sets, and shoulder plus when they arrive.
The Bureau says that as we get toward midday, the wind is going to go more southerly. The swell looks like holding through the day and with luck should still be surfable (although smaller) first thing tomorrow.
My plan is to get out there because the eye doc told me she might not let me back in the water with my new lens for a month from tomorrow. I tried to explain that it was historically the best month of the year for surf, but for some reason this didn’t alter her advice. Oh well, guess I’ll be taking pictures of you all instead of getting in your way.
Have a good one and keep on smilin’!
