According to the thermometer in my car, it was about 5 degrees at daybreak this morning. Throw in 10-15kts of westerly wind and it was exceedingly brisk. Even so, there were a few people already in the water at Dee Why and at South Narra. Swell’s definitely filling in too. The MHL buoy was showing 2.7 metres of 10 second SE swell as of 0500. Sets at Dee Why beach were shoulder to head, but only waist-ish at the point. I reckon Longy would be a touch bigger than the beach on the outside bombies. Around at south Narrabeen it looked to be chest to head on the sets, particularly where the swell was focussing near Marquesas.
Outlook is for the swell to peak today and fade through to Monday but it should be surfable across the period at spots that love straight south. Later in the week it could be back up again too!
Tide was low at 0545 and will be high at 1150.
