King tides, pauper waves

Nothing doing at Dee Why as of 0600

Faint chop and nothing more

QF76 and full moon – 14 hours after leaving Vancouver

Hello Friends,

10 kts of SW wind and partly cloudy skies as of 0600, but still no waves. The latest MHL data from 0300 was showing 1.5 m of 5-sec south wind bump and that, plus the wind, plus the incoming king tide at 0956 meant no waves for Dee Why.
Outlook is for the ocean to remain quiescent today – and for well into next week.
Wish it was otherwise, but there ya go. At least we’re another day closer to the waves returning.
Have a great day everyone!
