Monday morning waves

Posted by: on June 25th, 2018

Hello Friends,

A hardy crew amongst them at the point and along the beach by 0730 this morning. Sunny skies and a chilly 8-9 kt WNW wind were creating an attractive setting for the 2 metre 9-10 sec SSE (165°) swell. It looked a bit inconsistent and the average wave face on sets was around the waist to chest high range at the point, but from where people were sitting, there must be a few bigger ones. The beach seemed to be about the same size as the point, maybe a touch bigger as you head north, but as we head toward low tide at noon I’d expect the shutdown to makeable ratio will go the wrong way.
The forecast calls for the swell to fade across the day and tomorrow should be a little smaller – but hopefully not flat. The dropping trend could see us back to flat or near enough by the end of the week.
Speaking of next week, I’ll be back in postcard mode for July as I travel through some non-surf corners of the world. As usual I’ll try to take advantage of the time zones to post early summaries of the prospects for Sydney, but it’ll be sporadic I’m guessing.
Have yourself a great Monday everyone!

Nice looking shutdown at Dee Why 0730

Waist high sets for the most part

The occasional bigger one
