Glassy little bumps at NE spots

Hello Friends,
A calm, sultry morning under grey skies as the last day of 2016 got underway. Happily there were also some glassy little ENE lines at the magnet spots. Size is around the knee to waist range on the catchable ones at the better exposed spots.
The MHL buoy was showing 1.4m of 7-sec ENE wind swell at 0400. Tide’s running into the high at 1020.
It was busy at Northy but there seemed to be much less crowded little things immediately south of there.
Around at the Longy to Dee Why stretch there were some very occasional, very soft little knee plus ENE bumps at the Longy end but down the beach the hopefuls were waiting even longer for even more marginal offerings.
This morning’s swell models say we can expect conditions to fade out across the day and that tomorrow will be barely there surfwise. They show a bump up into the surfable but not amazing range for Monday-Tuesday, with Wednesday looking SE in the waist to shoulder range but potentially with SE wind in on top of it.
Have yourself a great New Year’s Eve and catch you again in 2017!
