Hello Friends,

Very tiny along the Dee Why and Narrabeen stretches this morning. I saw one person frantically paddle into a knee high dribbler just north of the club. They popped up and then fell off the back of the little bump. And that seemed to be a set. Some morning haze around at report time and wind coming from the SW at 6-8 kts. The MHL data from 0500 is showing 1.3 metres of 6 sec SSE wind swell. There was some 10 second component too, so exposed spots might possibly have the odd catchable one.
Tide is low at 0855 and back to high at 1500. Should get to 26 and there’s a possibility of a late shower. Wind is expected to go around to the SE at 15-20 kt and the Bureau says the swell should weaken a little more.
Have to say that I’m not hugely excited about the look of the forecast models for the coming week. This morning they’re pretty much all lining up on the outlook – which is for a metre or so from the NE at 8-9 seconds more or less, give or take. Could be more paddling practice than anything else.
Water’s nice though.
Go well with your day and stay happy everyone!
