As Friday gets started the swell is 2.2 metres and coming from the SSE at 12 seconds apart. That means double overhead faces on the sets up the beach and only a touch smaller at the point. As the pics show, there are quite a few waves in the sets and the point is just about maxing out on the bomb sets. Wind is light offshore and skies are sunny. Tide’s dropping to the low at 0950.
Swell may be peaking this morning, but there should definitely be energy all day. I reckon there should still be some fun ones tomorrow too (although a lot smaller).
Like yesterday, I’m planning to put a little time behind the lens again today, so check back this evening to see what I found.
Have a great day!
A high pressure system moving over southeast Australia is expected to be the dominant synoptic feature for the next few days, blocking the progress of approaching cold fronts. As cold fronts skim the south of the state, a vigorous west to southwesterly flow will persist across far southern New South Wales waters today and part of tomorrow. The next significant frontal system to impact New South Wales is expected early next week.
