Waves for the early

Posted by: on April 16th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Definitely a few waist to chest plusses around this morning at 0700 thanks to light winds and 1.5 metres of 9-second east wind swell. Lots of folks in the water from first light of course, so whether it was North Narrabeen or Long Reef or No Man’s, you’d have been sharing with 20 others. Still it was glassy for the daybreak session and the waves had enough energy to be fun looking.
First tide of the daylight hours is the low at 1130 and right on dark it’ll be back to high.
The NE seabreeze should be a factor by 0900 and by around lunch it should start swinging to the south to SE.
I’d say the plan is to get in asap because from this afternoon we’re going to be into southerly conditions with showers and grey skies through to Tuesday morning.
Have yourself a top old Saturday one and all!

Weather Situation
