A little smaller but still a few waves around this morning

Crew at the point as of 0710

A few hopefuls looking around at No Mans

Hello Friends,

Swell’s cogged down a notch overnight. As of 0400 it was 1.7 m at 10 sec from 156 degrees. At 0720 wind was 3 kts out of the WNW at North Head. Tide was low at 0740 and will be back to a 1.4 m high at 1340. There was a small crowd at Dee Why point when I grabbed the snaps a little after 0700. Waves looked to be in the waist to chest plus range and surface conditions were smooth. Lines were showing up the beach toward No Mans as well. Given the swell direction, I’d say there should be waves pretty much everywhere they were yesterday. Ocean is a cozy 24oC.

The Goat will be along later with his prognostications of a surfing sort. From my reading of this morning’s swell models the average period looks like dropping into the gutless sub-10 sec range over the weekend, but may come back up a little next week…

Have yourself a top old Thursday everyone and keep on smilin’!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the southwest Tasman Sea extends a ridge to the north, resulting in generally east to northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast. Winds are expected to shift more northerly at the end of the week as the high drifts further east and a cold front approaches from the southwest. This front will bring a southerly change to the southern coast later Saturday, extending through to the north on Sunday.
