Another barely there surf day

Posted by: on September 21st, 2018

Hello Friends,

Not much of anything to be seen at Dee Why this beautiful morning. Couldn’t see anyone in the water, nor any reason for them to be there for that matter. Swell was sitting on 1.2 m at 9 seconds from the south (162-164°). Tide was high at 0555 and is now dropping to a 0.6 m low at 1135. According to Beachwatch, the water temp is up to 18C.

Outlook is for conditions to remain tiny through the weekend, but next week’s outlook has improved on some models this morning. From around Monday – if they’re right – we could start to see some improvement at south spots. The problem is that the wind could be southerly into Tuesday. Right now Thursday is shaping to be the tip for south spots.

Have a great Friday everybody!

No sign of surf at Dee Why
