Pumping Saturday

Posted by: on August 19th, 2017

Hello Friends,
Dead south, 3 metres at 11-12 sec means solid head to head and a bit on the sets at Dee Why point as the day kicked off. Plenty of size along the beach, but it was way too lined up to be worth the considerable effort involved. The Collaroy to Narra stretch was a victim of the swell direction and long lines, but you might find something at Collaroy proper. Tide was high at 0600 and is currently headed to the low at 1145.
Wind is brisk from the SW and set to ramp up into the 25-35 kt range before swinging south this evening. Swell is set to peak into the 4-6 metre range offshore during the day and then it’ll fade back into the 1-2 metre range by late Monday. Wind will be southerly tomorrow says the Bureau, so it looks like the optimal prospects are today. Monday could be okay as there should still be fun size swell and the wind goes more variable.
Have a great Saturday and beginners, know your limits!

Weather Situation
A complex low pressure system lies over the eastern Tasman Sea, while a high is centred near Adelaide. This pattern is maintaining vigorous winds along the New South Wales coast today, and is generating a large southerly swell. Winds will ease significantly during Sunday as the high drifts over southeast Australia and the low loses influence. By Monday the high is expected to be over the Tasman sea.
