Little but rideable

Posted by: on July 25th, 2020

Hello Friends,

The quiet before the storm this morning. Not much change to surf options since yesterday. It looked inconsistent and around knee to maybe waist high at Narrabeen and along the Longy-Dee Why stretch. So a good morning to go for a paddle if you’re a beginner. The clouds and rain are due later, as is the NE sea breeze, so earlier is better if you can manage it. Water is 17C, so not bad in a steamer.

As of 0400, the MHL buoy was showing 1.1 metres at 11.8 sec from 158°. Tide was low at 0545 and will be back to high at noon.

Current outlook is for the swell to gradually start building tomorrow as it heads to a peak in the 3 metre range Tuesday afternoon. Right now the wind looks like being southerly across Sun-Mon but as the swell peaks, it could be a fairly stiff  20+kts from the SW with showery weather. Wednesday is currently predicted to be partly cloudy with swell dropping into the 2 metre range. Could be the go…

Take care, mask up when you go into shared internal spaces and keep washing those hands!
