Swell ramped yesterday and this morning sees 2.5 metres of 7-8 second south swell lighting up the point and the beach with chest to shoulder high sets – and the odd bigger bomb.
As of 0830 North Head was seeing 8-13 kts of WSW wind. It’s set to go around to the south soon, so those who got in early will have had the best of it. Tide is currently dropping to a 0.3 m low around 1115 and it will be back to a 1.7 m high just after dark.
Right now it looks as though this could be the peak for the week, but with luck there’ll still be a few fun ones left in the hopper for tomorrow morning’s early sesh.
Have a great holiday Monday everyone!
A high pressure system is moving east across the southern Tasman Sea as a low lingers over the central Tasman Sea, generating southerly winds along the New South Wales coast. Winds will turn west to northwesterly from late tomorrow, and will persist for the coming days, as a series of cold fronts move across the Bass Strait.
