On the fade but a few waves for the early

Posted by: on August 7th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Another sunny morning and we still had a few waves for the early session at Dee Why. Once again the point is more busy than usual because the banks aren’t coping with the long ground swell lines. Sets looked to be less frequent than yesterday at this time. Size was in the waist on the average sets to shoulder high on the biggest ones. The MHL buoy was showing 1.25 metres from 158° at close to 14 seconds apart. Wind was coming from the NW at 6-7 kts early. It should pick up a bit as the morning goes along, but the forecast says it’ll be light and variable by midday. Tide was low at 0715 and will be back to a 1.5 m high at 1340.

Swell is predicted to fade slowly across the day, so getting in earlier rather than later is definitely the plan. The next few days currently look like being very small to flat, but around about Sunday we could have a fresh straight south pulse. If that happens, the front half of next week should see more fun conditions at south magnets…

Have a great Wednesday!

Typical set around 0700

Chest plus on the bigger ones
