Lots of surf options at south favourables

Posted by: on August 29th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Super clean, lightly offshore and head high plus on the bomb sets at south magnets on Saturday morning. It was kind of missing Dee Why point but the peak north of the club and several focal points between there and the bombies at Longy were all keeping the crowds entertained. Swell was showing from just south of Marquesas almost to Northy. It was busiest at Surfrider Gardens but a patient attitude and enough time should see you scoring something worthy.

Swell at sea was 1.6 metres at 12 seconds from 166°, so definitely down from yesterday evening’s peak. The forecast tells us to expect the energy to dribble away as the day goes along. Tide was high at 0530 and is back to low at 1100 as we head to sunny high of 21. Water is 17C and clean everywhere.

Outlook? Well, like the Goat said, there could be some waves around tomorrow morning, then it may fade back…

A recent cold front is bringing fresh to strong southwesterly winds to New South Wales waters today. Following this, a strong high pressure system will drift across from the west during Saturday, reaching the Tasman Sea by Sunday.
