You could surf this morning – if you’re keen

Posted by: on March 20th, 2017

Hello Friends,

This morning sees marginal but not flat conditions at protected stretches. There’s about a metre of 8-sec east wind swell out at sea and the wind is lightly NE under mainly cloudy skies. The Collaroy to Narrabeen stretch looked pretty junky but it was showing chest plus wave faces on sets. When I checked it a little before 0800 I could see only one person in the water along the southern stretch and catching waves looked like hard work. Around the corner at Long Reef there were lots more folks in the water. They were riding mostly longer boards to cope with the gutlessness.Tide hits low at 0850 and will be back to high at 1445.
Surf outlook is for wave energy levels to further decrease across the day and to trend steadily toward near flatness across the week ahead. The showery weather is set to continue too.
Hope to be proven wrong of course!
(Your slightly jetlagged correspondent has returned to the RealSurf wheelhouse after two long months away. Huge thanks to the Goat and Michael M. for keeping the local content conning while I was sending postcards.)
Have a good one!

Working with what there is at Longy a little before 0800

Well, at least it’s not blown out.
