Big stuff all gone and back to tiny

Posted by: on July 24th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Three days of thumping swell dried up overnight and Monday morning sees ankle to knee dribble at the point and knee to waist and a bit as you move north along the beach. Tide is filling into a 1.5m high at 0855 and wind was coming from the WNW at 7 kts. The MHL buoy was showing less than a metre of 12-sec SSE swell at 0500 but the Bureau’s swell model is hinting at a possible bump up around midday. And tomorrow looks like maybe coming up again in the afternoon as a long period pulse arrives from the south. Outlook for the rest of the week varies from model to model, but the more hopeful predictions are suggesting 2+ metres for Thursday morning. Here’s hoping!
