Saturday morning prospects

Posted by: on July 30th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Saturday kicked off with light winds, clear skies and a couple of metres of 10-sec south swell showing on the MHL buoy off Sydney. High tide was at 0500 and low at 1050.
Around the beaches this morning it was lined up and shutting down from Northy to Collaroy. You coulda had it to yourself.
The Longy to Dee Why stretch was producing waist to shoulder-head wave faces. The point was at the bottom end of the range and way more inconsistent than the beach. Pretty lined up, but there were definitely a few quick and fun looking sections if you were in the spot. Longy inside bombies were doing the usual whack-a-mole thing with no two waves breaking in the same place. Keeps the crowd spread out I guess.
Looks like there should be waves all day and again tomorrow when the Bureau has hoisted a deceptively powerful surf warning. And next week is shaping to be pretty close to the Goat’s call.
Have yourself a great day one and all!

Weather Situation

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 early this morning. The next significant frontal system to impact New South Wales is expected early next week.
