How keen are you?

Posted by: on October 10th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Solid overcast, drizzle and light SSE wind combined with a much faded SE swell to paint a less than appetizing picture at Dee Why. There were a few hardy types in the water at the point when I grabbed the pictures, but it looked pretty sad. I waited for a set to show up, but nothing appeared and it started drizzling again. From where people were sitting, I’d say they were chasing knee to maybe waist high bumps. There didn’t seem to be anyone in the water up toward No Mans which, given the conditions, wasn’t all that surprising. Again, I’d say you could probably find something in the knee to maybe knee plus range on the bomb sets.
Tide was low at 0600 and is headed to a highish 1.74 m peak at 1225.
The models show another 4-5 days (at least) of conditions bumping along just above absolute flatness. On your behalf, I hope they’re unduly pessimistic.
However it plays out, may your day go well!

Barely there at 0720

Up the beach looking blah
