Not a lot of surfing going on at Dee Why

Posted by: on October 13th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Light WNW wind and tide dropping to the low at 0910 when I checked Dee Why for the first time today at just after 0700. Skies were hazy and partly cloudy. The MHL buoy was showing 1.3 metres of 8-sec SE wind bump and as the pictures show, it wasn’t producing anything of note on the surf front. I couldn’t see anybody in the water, nor any reason why there should be. I’d say the sets are at best in the knee high range – if that.
I’m with the Goat on today’s prospects and am liking his views on next week…
Best wishes for a cruisy, if surfless Friday!
