Waves for the keen

Posted by: on September 29th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Kind of grey and scrappy looking at Dee Why but as the pictures show there are a few shoulder high moments at the point and probably up the beach as well. Wind was out of the ESE and pretty light for the early session. It’s set to stay that way for a bit longer before settling around to the east-NE this afternoon. So, likely it’ll be kinda bumpy all day long. Tide was 1.37 metres at 0645 and is currently running out to the 0.5 m low at 1235. Weather should be partly cloudy and 20 today,

Swell at sea was 2.2 metres at 12-13 seconds from the SSE (168°) as of 0730 and water has dropped back a touch to 17C.

Outlook is for the energy levels to continue at about the current intensity through Thursday and probably into Friday morning. Probably not spectacular quality, but at least you can get wet.

Go well one and all!

 

Set at the point 0715

No one visible at No Mans
