Give it a pass this morning

Posted by: on October 14th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Yeah, nah.

It may be 1.47m at 8 seconds from the SSE out at sea, but a steady south breeze of 10-13 kts has kept alive the junky conditions inflicted on us by last night’s change. Dee Why’s looking around the knee high mark with a choppy surface. The hazy grey skies are taking the edge off as well.

I’m not really seeing any reason to hope for an improvement today although there is at least a hope of a little bit better conditions for tomorrow morning. Beyond that, I’m hoping the Goat will see something interesting for us in the next week because it’s all looking pretty ho-hum on this morning’s run of the swell prediction models.

Stay safe everybody!

Not happening at Dee Why this morning

Gloomy, tiny and onshore
