Just about flat, but not quite there

Posted by: on March 22nd, 2017

Hello Friends,

Wave energy has cogged down another notch and the surf options have decreased from yesterday’s paltry options. The MHL buoy was showing 1.2 metres of 6-second east wind bump at 0500. At 0700 wind was light from the NW. The next tide is a low at 1110.

Looking around at Dee Why and the Collaroy Narrabeen stretch revealed glassy but very small and weak conditions everywhere. Take your floatiest surf option and a heap of patience I’d say. Biggest wave face I saw was (briefly) chest high. But mostly it was more like ankle to knee – and not consistent.

Outlook is for a southerly to kick in overnight and tomorrow morning it’s supposed to be 15-25 kts as the swell starts to come up. At least a couple of the fine-grained wind forecasts are showing the possibility of early morning offshores… so might be worth setting the alarm on the offchance…

Have a great day everyone!
