Dodging showers for dodgy waves

Hello Friends,

Surface conditions were choppy at 0630 and yesterday’s little south swell seems to be this morning’s littler south swell. There were a couple of people in the water near the rocks at North Narrabeen and one intrepid sort wading out at south Narra for a bodybash. Around at Dee Why the odd waist high dribbler was being caught at the point and along the beach, but quality, as elsewhere, was not impressive.

Tide is heading in to a 1.9 m high at 1120 and by then the wind should be around to the SE by the time it peaks. Plus the already weak swell is on the decline – and it’s going to keep fading slowly through Monday.

A strong high pressure system southeast of the Bight with a ridge along the New South Wales coast is very slowly moving east directing south to southeasterly winds across the western Tasman Sea.
