Down in a little in Sydney – Up a little in Cali

Posted by: on November 17th, 2018

Hello Friends,

At 0700 wind was still lightly from the SW, but the forecast has it going around to the SE by midday. The MHL buoy was showing 1.2 metres at 8 seconds from 155 degrees (SE) and the WRL snap from first light showed it was probably in the knee to waist-ish range on sets at more exposed locations. Tide is dropping to a low at about 1020. By the time it’s back to the 1.48m high at 1630, the wind should be chewing things up. Water’s around 20C.
Waves have come up a touch today in SoCal, so I might go for a surf hunt this afternoon. Hoping the swell direction is favourable to Santa Barbara (don’t want to drive an hour south to the crowded, sideshore conditions in Ventura).
Have a great Saturday!

More of a line for a growing C-street crowd late morning

The high centre moves into the Tasman Sea on Monday with winds tending east to northeasterly.
