How keen are you?

Posted by: on December 27th, 2017

Hello Friends,

7-10 kts of ENE wind as of 0730 and 1.3 m of 7-sec east bump trying to turn into waves along the Dee Why stretch. There was actually a person in the water at the point catching waves too. Mind you, it looked to be about ankle to knee high. I reckon that’d be pretty much the same up and down the beaches I’d say. When the waves are this close together, they’re really gutless 90% of the time but every now and then a couple of them will come together and on just the right bank at just the right time, you’ll get a brief chest high wave face. The east direction should mean that there are bumps pretty much everywhere so it’s just a matter of looking for where it’s focusing at particular tides. Speaking of which, low is at 0930 and then it’ll come into a 1.4 m high at 1535.
We’re headed to a high of 26 and the wind should stay about where it is now. Swell is set to hang around at the current settings – more or less – through tomorrow. Yesterday the Bureau’s modelling showed the possibility of a little bump to energy levels, but this morning it seems less excited about the prospects. The latest batch of long range models are all saying we can expect sub-10 sec energy levels for another week at least on the east coast.
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
