You’ll have to hunt around

Posted by: on July 16th, 2017

Hello Friends,
Mostly sunny skies and light westerly breezes as Sunday kicked off. A perfect beach day for Sydney in every respect but one. Swell is a metre at 8 seconds from the south, so it’s up a tiny bit since yesterday. Dee Why however still didn’t look surfable from the RealSurf crows nest. Yesterday afternoon I saw knee to waist high waves at Curly, so that might be a better shot than the Dee Why stretch today.
Tide was low at 0715 and is coming into a 1.4 m high at 1335.
Outlook is for it to be small to flat until around Wednesday at which point most of the models show increasing but short-period east wind bump. By Thursday the models are showing the period getting into the 10 sec range and swell heading toward the 3+ metre zone which should be accompanied by brisk westerly wind. Interesting…
Have a top old Sunday everyone!
