Corker of a morning for the dawn patrol. At daybreak swell was a touch under two metres and was coming from the S-SE at 10 seconds apart. The consequence was chest to shoulder high wave faces on sets from around Kiddies north to the Lagoon entrance on the Dee Why to Longy stretch and knee to waist from about a little south of Carparks to the Alley at North Narrabeen. Skies were clear and wind was coming lightly from the NW. Tide was high at 0530 and is now dropping back to the low at 1110.
Outlook is for the waves to decrease across the morning, so if you can get down there asap, that’d be the best plan.
Tomorrow promises to be much windier but there might be a few little waves for the early session but thereafter the models hold little joy for surfing prospects until around Thursday when the south magnets should perk up into the surfable (knee to waist) range.
So get out and enjoy your Saturday!
A high pressure system drifting over eastern New South Wales will be the dominant feature today, while a low over the northern Tasman sea is weakening and losing influence on coastal winds. Winds will turn northerly during today as the high reaches the Tasman Sea, strengthening in many coastal areas on Sunday as a cold front approaches from the west. This front looks set to bring a gusty change to the southern coast late Sunday, continuing through to the north on Monday.
