As predicted it’s southerly

Posted by: on April 27th, 2018

Hello Friends,

Surf conditions are completely unappetizing at Dee Why. I could only see one person in the water. I’d call wave faces waist to chest plus on sets. But it’s so wind-blown and bumpy that catching the close-together wind swell will be a real challenge. Wind was SE 15-20 kts as of 0850, right in line with the forecast. Out at sea the MHL buoy was showing a touch under 3 metres of 9-second south wind swell. There was a 1.7 m high tide at 0610 and it’s now dropping to a very low 0.38 m at 1230. The wind isn’t expected to decrease today or indeed across the weekend.

It’s Friday, so as usual I’ll dispense with speculations about the longer term outlook and refer you instead to the cogitations of the mighty Goat (see down page)

Have a good Friday everyone and keep on smilin’ the waves will get better…eventually!
