Looks as though the water temperature has slipped another notch offshore. The MHL buoy was detecting 17.6 C water along with 2 metres of 9 second swell from the south around to SE.
Only a few bods in the water along the beach at Dee Why around 0800. High tide is at 0935 so the point looked a bit too fat for the small conditions. There were a couple of people out there, but the best waves were the waist to chest sets popping up along the beach.
Outlook is for smaller conditions across remainder of the week according to the swell model interpretations. But next weekend is shaping up to be very interesting. If they’re right, we’re in for a three day run of solid 3-4 metre south swell – apparently. We shall see…
Was out and about with the camera yesterday morning. If you were in the water at Dee Why, you should take a look to see if I caught your stylin’.
Have a grand Monday!
