Beautiful day but only tiny

Posted by: on November 15th, 2017

Hello Friends,

Another glorious day coming up for Sydney but it looks like only ankle to knee high for surfers. Wind was light WSW at 0700 but it’s expected to come around to the NE and be a bog standard summery 15-20 kts by this afternoon. At 0500 the MHL buoy off Sydney was seeing 0.8 m of 9-sec swell coming from the east (102 degrees). Tide hit a 1.56 m high at 0700 and is now headed to the low at 1315.

As the wind picks up this afternoon there should be some onshore burgers into the waist high range at magnets. I don’t think it’s likely to last overnight and that tomorrow will likely start out small and weak  before the NE cycle kicks in again. And it looks like that pattern will likely hold through the weekend. But Monday might be rather interesting. If the more hopeful models have it right, we could see a solid pulse from the east. Unfortunately the models also show steady onshore flow too. It’ll be interesting to see what the Goat thinks tomorrow evening.

Have a great Wednesday one and all and keep on smilin’!
