Faded rapidly but not flat

Posted by: on June 11th, 2015

Hello Friends,

At 0600 swell was 2 metres at 9 seconds apart from the south and wind was light westerly under overcast skies. We can expect the wind to come around to the SE later. Tide is dropping and today’s low will be at 0930.

Swell direction, size and period aren’t optimal for Dee Why, but as you head north along the beach, it seems prospects improve. As the pictures show, the point was pretty marginal but there were chest plus options up toward No Man’s.

As always, it’ll be interesting to see what the Goat thinks about the long range outlook. My reading of the models is that things will bumble along at about the current intensity – maybe a bit less – until mid next week when it seems a long-period south pulse could show up.

Go well with your plans everyone!
