Really small but there are bumps

Maybe slightly bigger than yesterday morning

Hello Friends,
It looks a tiny bit better this morning than yesterday. There were a few more people in the water along the beach north from Dee Why – which is a hopeful sign – and the weather is sunnier too. Wind at 0720 was coming lightly from the east at 6-8 kts. Waves are still tiny (1.2 m) and short period (6-7 sec), but the direction has settled more to the ESE. Beachwatch was calling the water temp 21 yesterday. Next tide is a 1.7 m high at 1130. We’re headed for a high of 25 with a chance of the odd light shower. Sun protection recommended from 8:40 am to 5:00 pm, UV Index predicted to reach 12 [Extreme]
Outlook? Well I suggest having a look at the Goat’s Christmas forecast here.
Have a top old Friday everyone!

Hopefuls out for a paddle at 0715
