Pumping Saturday morning

Posted by: on September 9th, 2017

Hello Friends,
A couple metres of 11-sec south swell pushing in as Saturday kicked off. The Bureau says it should come up a bit more this morning too. Waves were solidly overhead on the bombs at Dee Why point and on sets up the beach. There were 30 people in the water at the former and that, combined with a straight south’s inconsistency, meant that competition was intense for the good ones.
There was a small group at Collaroy chasing fattish chest plus sets, but apart from that, it’s just too lined up for the beaches.
Wind was west early but will be more S-SW later.
Outlook is for the big stuff to stick around for the next 24 hours. From Sunday midday it starts to fade again, but we should still have some little fun ones for Monday.
Have fun but know your limits!

Weather Situation
The combination of a deep low over the southern Tasman Sea and a high over South Australia will maintain a vigorous south to southwesterly airstream over most coastal areas today. During the weekend the high will drift across New South Wales as the low moves further east, resulting in significantly lighter coastal winds on Sunday. By Monday the high will be centred over the northern Tasman Sea with coastal winds shifting northerly.
