Marginal at best

Posted by: on September 27th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Light ENE wind ruffling the surface by 0800 – and it’s going to pick up as the day goes along. As of 0700 the MHL buoy was showing 1.5 m of SSE (162°) swell at 9 seconds. As the pictures show, it’s not doing any favours for the point or up as far as No Mans, but maybe places with a little better orientation (eg north or about the Pole) will have something marginal. Tide was low at 0620 and is now heading to a 1.43 m high at 1255. Should be 25 and partly cloudy all day.
Tomorrow looks like a better prospect for waves as the NE bump fades a bit and we get more southerly energy. The wind could make it complicated though because it’s supposed to be out of the northerly quarters. So, north corners would be the obvious plan.
Apologies for the missed reports, but I was getting my ear reamed out at RNSH. So far so good, but in my case the docs are saying it’s going to be 6-8 weeks of no surfin’. At least it’s not peak surf season. While waiting to be wheeled in for surgery the bloke next to me and I discovered that we’re both from the same suburb and both long time surfers. Nice to talk waves and surf spots with ya Andrew and hope your procedure went well too.
Have a great day everybody!

No joy at the point today

No Mans not looking functional, try up the beach toward the Lugga maybe…
