Glassy, mostly weak and tiny early

Posted by: on December 26th, 2020

Hello Friends,

As the day got started under lowering dark grey skies, the wind was light and the tiny ENE bumps were glassy smooth but offering little energy. Couldn’t see anyone in the water along the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch where waves looked to be maybe knee to waist on the biggest ones. It was pretty much the same around at Dee Why, although there were a few Boxing Day early risers making what they could of the soft bumps. Out at sea the buoy was seeing 1.2 metres of 9-second energy from 112°. High tide was just topping out at 1.5 metres and is now dropping to the 0.6 m low at 1310. Water’s 21C.

Tomorrow should be mostly sunny and warm but it looks as though the already marginal surf conditions will be even less attractive as the models show it going close to flat. It may perk up a tiny bit into the just catchable range midweek, but overall it currently promises to be extremely underwhelming until Thursday at least. Summer time.

Mask up and take care everybody!
