Pumping southeast swell

Hello Friends,

Close to 3 metres of 11 second SE swell rolling in with light offshores and sunny skies as Saturday got started. Wind is set to be light until this evening when it will get up to 10-15kts from the SE. Next tide is a big high at 1120, followed by a low at 1810.

There are some serious looking sets in the mix at exposed spots, so this is definitely not a day for beginners at most places. If you want a quiet sesh, maybe check out the protected south corners because anything with good exposure to this swell will be showing sets into the overhead range. Swell looks nice and juicy too thanks to the healthy 11 second period. Pay attention and be prepared to share because it was already very busy at Dee Why before 0700.

Swell is set to peak today and then drop away pretty steadily over the next 36-48 hours. With luck we’ll get waves pretty much all day and then again tomorrow before the wind gets into it and maybe even a few scraps Monday morning.

Go well and have a top old day!

ps: will be out and about with a camera today so hope to have some snaps for you later!
