As of 0730 a light NW breeze was ruffling the sea under mostly clear skies. Swell has dropped another 30 cm since yesterday at this time and as of 0600 was a metre at 10 seconds from the SE. What that meant for Dee Why was long waits for maybe waist high bumps.
Tide was high at 0840 so it is now running out to the low at 1430
Surf prospects don’t look like improving today but from tomorrow the energy levels should start going up again as we head toward a significant south pulse from about Friday.
Have a great Tuesday!
