Surfing could be a challenge

Posted by: on May 25th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Chilly start to Thursday along the beaches. Skies are clear early and the wind is WNW. The ocean looked close to flat at Dee Why, although the MHL buoy off Sydney was detecting 1.2 metres of 9 second SSE swell.
I couldn’t see anyone in the water at 0700. At 0730 the tide hit a 1.6 metre high and it’s now dropping to the low at 1330. The Bureau’s forecasting a small bump around midday, so I’ll keep an eye on it just in case.
It’ll be interesting to see what the Goat thinks about the surf week ahead because your correspondent is not exactly brimming with hope. No complaints though, it’s been a reasonable if unspectacular autumn thus far.
Have yourself a great Thursday everyone!

Some haze across the city this morning

0710 at Dee Why beach and point

Only a tiny line showing at No Mans around 0710
