Beautiful morning but no surf

Posted by: on July 5th, 2017

Hello Friends,
Dee Why looks wave free to me this morning. There’s less than a metre of long period SSE swell out at sea, but it’s nowhere near enough to deliver waves. Not that it’s particularly relevant, but tide is now dropping to the low at 1120. Wind is north right now but should start coming from the NW before long.
The models are showing little of interest for another week or so. At this stage it would seem our next waves could be here around next Wednesday…
Hey, want to go watch giant waves on the big screen? I have a pair of tickets to give away for one of the three showings of Tim Bonython’s Big Wave Project. First person to drop me a line get ’em.
