Sunny start, gales inbound

Posted by: on September 25th, 2020

Hello Friends,

A light, cool northerly under clear blue skies as Friday got started along the beaches. As the picture shows, it was still flat at Dee Why point and there was only the tiniest of tiny lines coming in up the beach. The Bureau tells us to expect a strong westerly change of 20-30 kts later in the day as the cloud arrives. Swell at sea was about a metre from the south at about 10 seconds apart but you’ll do well to find anything above the knee high mark.
So, when will we see an improvement?
You’re in luck because the one and the only, the mighty Goat has scanned the entrails and pronounced upon our prospects.

Go well with your Friday and keep the mask handy.

Maybe a day to take the kayak for a spin
