Looking pretty tiny at Dee Why this morning

Early morning sunshine reveals a tiny Dee Why.

 

No sign of a line at No Mans 0650.

Hello Friends,

Nothing much showing in the corner at Dee Why or, up the beach as of 0650 this morning. Wind early was coming from the NW at only 2-3 kts. The ocean looked a little ruffled, but nothing you’d mind if there was swell – which there isn’t at Dee Why. At 0400 the MHL buoy was detecting 1.3 m of 6-second SE wind bump. Magnet spots might be in the ankle to knee range, but most places will be smaller than that.

We had a 1.4 m high at 0420, so the early session was fat as well as really tiny. By 1100 when we’re back to low, the wind should be kicking in from the NE. So, not the most exciting outlook.

Speaking of outlook, the Goat dropped his assessment of the coming surf week last night, and as always I commend it to you!

Have a great Friday everyone.
