Junky and getting smaller

Posted by: on April 19th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Conditions at Dee Why were not nearly as attractive as they’ve been for most of the last week. Surface is choppy and although the MHL buoy is showing only a slight decrease from yesterday, the average wave looks to be about half the size, ie about waist high on the typical catchable one at the point. For the record the at 0600 it was 1.3 metres from the SE at close to 13 seconds. Wind was SSW 4-8 kts at 0800. It’s supposed to go SE-E 10 kts later.
Tide is low at 0820 and will then run into a 1.2m high at 1420.
The models remain dour about our prospects from now until late in the weekend at the earliest. It could be that we’re scratching around for scraps for another week or so.
Ah well, we’ve had an exceptional run of surf, so no complaints on that score.
Have yourself a top old Wednesday and go well with your plans.

Something small for the keen at 0745

Sets around the waist high mark

Another little lumpy one burbles in
