Micro morning in Dee Why

Posted by: on March 30th, 2015

Hello Friends,

Brace yourselves Sydney surfers. The ocean is going quiet and finding any sort of wave this morning will be a major accomplishment. There’s a tiny south line showing, but unless you have something like a two-person racing ski (see picture) you won’t be catching anything at Dee Why point. A kayak or similar might be the best option along the beach as it’s only knee high on sets (at best).

Not that it matters too much given the energy levels, but tide was high at 0545 and will be back to low at 1220.

Outlook this morning for the week ahead remains much as it has for the last week or so – pretty ordinary. The next few days look like being in the knee high range at south swell spots. There’s still some prospect of a tiny improvement into maybe the waist high range at the end of the week, but it’s not exactly looking spectacular. The real long range models are continuing to show heaps of activity in the southern ocean but it seems unlikely to get into our swell window until mid next week at the earliest. Sooner or later though…

Have a great Monday and go well with your plans!
