Dee Why imitates a billiard table

Posted by: on May 26th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Whatcha got on today? Not surfing if you live in Sydney, that’s for sure.

Hard to see how it could get any tinier than it was this morning at Dee Why.  Although the MHL buoy was detecting 0.8 m of 15-second swell from 156° as of 0500, there wasn’t so much as a hint of a line when I took the picture 3 hours later.

From the look of the ECM and Wavewatch models, we’re in for more of the same tomorrow, but come Tuesday south magnets could start to perk up into the waist plus range. It looks as though it’ll be a brief pulse, fading through the day and being pretty much gone by Wednesday.  The next prospect looks to be at the weekend when the models are showing a longer lasting and bigger south arriving from as early as Friday. The downside is that the wind could be pretty strong and south.

You may not need to pull on the steamer either as Beachwatch was measuring 23C water this morning. Good but not good, if you know what I mean.

Go well with your Sunday!
