Small grey morning at Dee Why

Hello Friends,

A light easterly wind and 2.4 metres of 9-sec SE swell out at sea were translating into surprisingly unimpressive conditions at Dee Why around 0730. Tide was dropping to the low at 1000 and the Bureau tells us the wind will be SE 10-15 kts later. So, pretty marginal, but if you’re really keen there should be some knee to waist plus options at magnets. Quality obviously won’t be too wonderful.
It’s Thursday, so the Goat should be along later with his weekend and week-ahead outlook. From my reading of the models, it looks like a couple more days of minor to near flat and then maybe a little uptick could start to bring things into the chest plus range from around Saturday. The models also seem to be pointing to a typical summer pattern of light morning winds with blown out afternoons. So, nothing special, but not hopelessly tiny either.
Have yourself a top old Thursday everyone and go well with your day!
