No Man’s good for no man

Hello Friends,

East swell at close to 3 metres and an average period of 8 seconds would at least be surfable. Unfortunately for Sydney surfers this morning, extra large dollops of keenness are required because we also have a baleful 10-15 kts of everywhere-trashing east to ESE wind. And the Bureau says both wind and swell will pick up around midday. And yes, rain will be heavy at times. Not that it matters much, but tide was high at 0700 and will be back to low at 1300.

Tomorrow the swell should still be chugging along from the NE at around 3 metres says the Bureau. Wind will be around to the south at 15-25 kts, so only the slightest of improvement to our prospects for a wave (although you’d have to wonder what the water quality’ll be like…)

Looking ahead, the not so good wind conditions are set to improve by Monday afternoon when we should definitely still have some east swell around. Tuesday sees mostly sunny conditions and NW wind with a steadily-fading but still there waist plus mainly ENE swell and Wednesday and Thursday look good weather wise with possible knee to waist plus east.

Your correspondent is going to head up the coast tomorrow, so expect some non-Sydney centric pictures and words for a few days…

Have yourself a great Saturday one and all!
