As expected the surf is, well, not very surfy this morning. There were a few hopefuls bobbing around along the beach near Kiddies and one or two up toward No Mans. As of 0700 the wind was lightly offshore and the MHL buoy’s 0400 observation showed a metre of 9-sec SE bump out at sea. Tide was a 1.48 m high at 0615 and is now dropping back to the 0.54 m low at 1220. Beach watch reports all of the northern beaches are clean and water temp is 21.
This morning’s models continue to project small to near flat conditions for the next couple of days and then a slight but gradual build toward the late weekend when there could be an influx of shortish period east wind swell. Unfortunately it looks as though the wind will be east as well. Here’s hoping that the early morning sessions will offer some options.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
A high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea extends a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast. This ridge will weaken briefly at the end of the week, before strengthening again on the weekend, maintaining generally east to northeasterly winds throughout the period.
