Beautiful morning along the beaches. At 0830 there was a light WNW wind just texturing the sea. Tide was just on low (high’s at 1500) and the MHL buoy was showing 1.2 m of 13-sec(!) SE. Kinda odd that nothing was really showing at the point given the data, plus the beach was really tiny up to No Mans. Looks like maybe knee to knee and a bit at the Dee Why end and possibly occasionally a touch bigger at Longy. Someplace like Curly might be a better shot to maximise your chances, but even then I reckon waist and a bit at best even there.
Having quickly scanned this morning’s collection of forecast models, I’d say they line up pretty well with the Goat’s forecast. Kinda typical spring pattern settling in…
Have yourself a fine old Friday everyone!
