Bumps but not a lot more

Posted by: on October 18th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Light NNE wind lumping up the full conditions at 0730 when I grabbed the pictures. Tide was just running into a 1.6 m high at 0810. The MHL buoy’s 0400 data indicated 1.7 m of 9-second wind bump from the NE and as a consequence there wasn’t much going on at Dee Why. The point didn’t really seem to be an option and the beach break out in front of the club was struggling to get above knee high. Checking some of the local cams indicates that it’s maybe a touch bigger at NE spots, but not dramatically so. A nice morning for a paddle (water’s around the 19° mark), but not so much for surfing.
The wind is set to pick up into the strong range later, so for fans of sideshore, short-period wind junk may find something of interest toward dusk. But the quality setting will not be at the high end of the range.
Between now and the end of the week the models point to a mixed bag surfwise. Tomorrow is likely to be similar to today and Friday should be windy again from the north at first, going southerly during the morning as some short period south stuff follows it in later. Oh, and there’s an 80% chance of rain too.
Have a great day one and all!

Maybe you could get something on a SUP at the point. around 0730 Maybe.

Nothing much at No Mans

Rider jags a bump at Kiddies 0730
