Looks fun out there. Waves in the shoulder plus range on the biggest sets, but mostly chest to a little less. Lotsa folks in the water at Northy, hardly anyone among the shutdowns south of there, then around the corner at Longy there were heaps of people chasing shutty-downy but head high sets. A bit smaller as you get to Kiddies and the point, but definitely a few to be had there.
Pics up in a bit…
To fill in the other details, at 0500 the MHL buoy was seeing 1.4 m from the SE (135°) at 11-12 seconds. Tide was dropping to the 0.5m low at 1035. It’ll be back to a 1.6 m high at 1710.
Outlook is for tomorrow and Monday morning to be southerly. Swell should be marginal tomorrow, but pushing back up Monday and if the Bureau has it right, the southerly should back off late in the day. By Tuesday the swell should be settling back again, but the wind is set to be offshore, so there could be some fun ones on tap. Plus the weather should be sunny again.
A high pressure ridge over New South Wales will remain through to next week with mostly light to moderate southeast to southwesterly winds along the coast. On Saturday a front will pass through the south bringing fresh to strong southwesterly winds to the far south.
