Still a few left in the tank

Posted by: on September 12th, 2017

Hello Friends,
Swell faded overnight and it’s due to dribble away completely over the next 24 hours. As of 0630 there were still some pretty little chest high lines coming into Dee Why and wind was coming lightly from the NW. It’s expected to pick up into the 15-20 kt range later and when it does, that’ll put paid to the Dee Why end of the beach as a reasonable surf option.
Tide was low at 0615 and is now coming into a 1.6 metre high at 1240. So add that to the factors working against quality waves later this morning. Obviously the plan is to hit it asap because we’re in for hot, windy and flat conditions tomorrow. Thursday looks bad on some models and hopeful on others, so here’s hoping.
Have yourself a great day and check back later to see the galleries from last weekend…

Little waves along the beach at 0630

Long lulls but still the occasional set for the point at 0630

Weather Situation
A high pressure system centred over the northwestern Tasman Sea will direct northerly winds along the coast as a series of cold fronts approach New South Wales from the west. The first of these fronts is expected to skim across the state’s south later today, with little impact on coastal areas. A more significant front will bring a vigorous west to southwesterly change later Wednesday or Thursday.
