Mostly overcast skies greeted Dee Why as a new day got started. Wind was 8-10 kts from the NNE and there was about a metre of 9-second SE wind bump showing on the 0500 data from the MHL Sydney buoy. Tide’s a 1.7m high at 1005, so in addition to the weak swell, conditions at Dee Why were looking pretty fat. You’d want to be keen, which is kinda too bad considering it’s going to be close to 30 along the coast.
The models continue to paint a summery picture for our surf prospects over the coming week – and beyond. As always it’ll be interesting to see what the Goat thinks…
Anyway, have yourself a great day everybody and keep on smilin’!
