Another morning of essentially flat conditions for Dee Why. However, at 0200 the MHL buoy was showing about a metre of 10s SE swell, so maybe an optimally configured bank at just the right tide would see the odd waist high set wave face.
Outlook remains pretty ordinary with the best hope being a little score around daybreak on days following windy afternoons. We’re in for a couple of days of reasonably fresh NE wind, so getting up early for a look could be a plan if you’re getting desperate.
Tide’s high at 0910 and low at 1545.
Have yourself a top old Thursday and get up to some good on the way through!
