Hello Friends,

Sparkling morning with an icy SW turning making a wine dark sea. One of those mornings where every detail seems to pop. Not a lot of surf activity at the Dee Why end of the beach, but there appeared to be possibilities as you went north toward the pole.

As of 0710, wind was west 10-15kts at North Head. The 0500 data from the MHL buoy showed 1.6 metres of 9-sec SSE swell. Tide’s dropping to the low at 0935 High will be at 1615. It should stay sunny and get to 19. Water should be ok most places and running about 18.

Waves this morning should be in the waist range with the odd plus on the bombs.

MHL’s nearshore forecast projects a gradual declinein swell height across the day and through tomorrow.
