Glassy little bumps for the keen

Posted by: on April 22nd, 2017

Hello Friends,

Light NNW wind before 0700 under high overcast skies. Waist and a bit high glassy bumps at magnet peaks from Dee Why to Longy and from south Narrabeen to Northy. Windswell 1.3 metres and coming mainly from the SE with a choppy and gutless period of about 6 seconds. As a consequence waves were pretty slow for the most part. Tide was high at 0430 and will be low at 1110. By then the forecast says we can expect the NEr to have kicked in – which will reduce surf options substantially.
The marginal to tiny settings look likely to persist until around Wednesday when some of the models show us getting a pulse of metre plus 10-11 sec east. Thursday and Friday are again looking hopeful with a 2-3 metre straight south coming together (in the most hopeful scenarios) with cool but nice weather and SW wind. If the predictions come to pass, we could see solid south to SSE swell through to next Monday. Whoo hoo!
So get out there for a stay in shape paddle over the next few days, ’cause it just might be interesting later
