Christmas warm, sunny with little waves

Light NNE at 0900

But lo, is that a line…?

Hello Friends,

Classic summer day coming up for Christmas. When I eventually climbed aloft to grab the pictures from the RealSurf crows nest, the wind was just beginning to puff lightly from the NNE. Skies were clear and in the direct sun it felt like we were already at the predicted 29 high for today. Bet it goes past that mark. Down at Dee Why there were hopeful surfers bobbing about at Kiddies and thereabouts. Didn’t see anyone up the beach toward No Mans, and the point was untroubled by board-equipped types. The heat shimmer took a toll on the picture quality, but though distorted, one can see there are little lines. I’m thinking knee with the odd plus.
The MHL buoy was seeing 1.3 metres of 10-sec stuff from the SSE-SE (154-162°). Tide is coming into a deep 2 metres at 1100 and then falling away to pretty low 0.15 m at 1740. By the time it’s bottoming out, the wind should be puffing along at a standard summer issue 15-20 kts.
Boxing Day looks kinda like today and so does Thursday, but on Friday it might possibly push up a bit at spots that like NE wind swell. It also looks as though the wind might be into it more or less from the get-go. Beyond that, the predictions currently are for no major change – up a bit and down a bit as the Goat is wont to say.
Have a top old day everyone!
