Close to flat

Hello Friends,

Another beautiful morning along the beaches without much of anything in the way of waves. There were a few people in the water along the beach at Dee Why, but waves were struggling to make the knee high mark. Needless to say, the point wasn’t doing anything. Winds were light as we came off the 0525 high tide earlier this morning. Out at sea the main swell was coming from the south. It was a metre or so, but the average period was a gutless 7 seconds.

Swell direction should go more east across the next few days and at the same time gradually come up into the barely surfable range. This morning sees some of the modelling predicting a bump into the waist to chest range this weekend as the easterly swell average period stretches out toward the 9-10 second range. Your correspondent won’t be in Sydney at that point as I’m off on a drive down to Vicco for a few days. I’m expecting to be able to put up postcards from my travels, and to stay in touch with local conditions too.

Have a great Tuesday everybody!

Going for one at 0745

Not much happening at 0745
