Sunny breaks, light westerly breeze and around 2 metres of 9 second period ESE swell and tide dropping to a low at 1100 are all adding up to “definitely worth a look” at many beaches this morning.
As the pictures show, there are head plus wave faces on the bigger ones at Dee Why, and it was pretty consistent too.
The Bureau says there’s a 90% chance of more rain today and that the wind will turn southerly later.
Bottom line? Go asap.
Outlook is for the wind to be somewhat less of a factor in the mornings for the next couple of days and for the swell to drop a bit but to stick around.
Go well one and all!

Potentially worth an paddle

A high pressure system is centred to the west of Bass Strait, with a trough offshore from the northern coast of New South Wales. The high will be the dominant feature in the region during the next few days as it drifts slowly east and extends a ridge northwards along the New South Wales coast.

- South to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots.
- Around 1 metre.
- Southeasterly 1.5 metres, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres offshore.
Friday 22 August
- East to southeasterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the evening.
- Below 1 metre.
- Southeasterly 1.5 metres.

As suggested yesterday, Tuesday started out with around 10kts of SW wind and scrappy but definitely catchable SSE wind swell. At around 0715, Dee Why point was delivering the odd head plus section and the beach was popping up a few in the same size range. Water looks extremely dodgy and according to Sydney Water, Dee Why’s suspect and spots such as Northy, Collaroy, Curly to Manly and Bronte and Coogee are likely polluted.
The swell is expected to weaken through the day while the southerly is set to spool up into the 20-25 kt range this morning.
Next tide is a high at 0855. The low will be along at around 1535.
Tomorrow looks like being pretty similar to today, ie, the best shot being in the morning before the SE’ly gets going. Thereafter it would seem we’re in for a switch to a NE’r regime for the rest of the week and into the weekend. There should be little wind swell waves around the place, but the wind will be severely limiting the options.
Hope you have yourself a top old Tuesday and that all goes well!
A high pressure ridge extends from New Zealand over southern parts of New South Wales. A trough extends from Queensland through northern New South Wales and into the Tasman Sea and a complex low pressure system lies within this trough near the Mid North Coast. On Tuesday this low pressure centre is expected to move away to the east. A cold front and associated trough system is expected to move through southern and central parts of the coast on Wednesday before weakening on Thursday as a high pressure ridge becomes re-established across the southern Tasman Sea.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
Southerly 10 to 15 knots, increasing to 20 to 25 knots in the morning, then easing.
Below 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the morning, then decreasing below 1 metre during the afternoon.
Southeasterly 1.5 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1.5 metres around dawn, then decreasing to around 1 metre around midday.
Isolated thunderstorms offshore this morning.
Wednesday 20 November
South to southeasterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the middle of the day then becoming east to southeasterly about 10 knots in the evening.
Below 1 metre.
Southeasterly 1 to 1.5 metres, tending easterly around 1 metre , then increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres before dawn.
Thursday 21 November
Easterly below 10 knots tending northeasterly 10 to 15 knots during the morning then increasing to 15 to 25 knots during the evening.
Around 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the afternoon or evening.
Easterly 1.5 metres.
The chance of thunderstorms.

Seems likely that most Sydney surfers will, like most southern California surfers, be giving it a miss today. The fates are ganging up against northern beaches waterpersons in particular, what with the onshores, rain and the dead whale at Newport potentially luring lots of sharks inshore. The Goat’s call from yesterday is lining up – sadly – with the indicators this morning. Swell is a couple metres out of the SSE but it hardly matters given the other conditions.
On this side of the ditch the weather is quite warm, the skies are blue and unlike the eastern part of the USA, there’s no prospect of a twister suddenly appearing. Sadly, the cold pacific (this morning’s water temp at Santa Barbara pier is up a nudge to 14C) is looking pretty feeble. Even exposed places such as California Street in Ventura (about 45 min south of Santa Barbara) are barely registering anything remotely surfable. That said, I might go scout around anyway…
Here’s a shot of the inside at C-Street. This is roughly 30 percent of the entire break by the way.
Have yourself a good one!

We finished the day with one last sesh at 9-iron reef. An hour or so before dark, with the tide on the turn and coming back in, the SEly sea breeze backed right off and the surface cleaned up. The swell is still rawboned and ragged but it’s definitely on the fade down this way. Anyhow… we paddled out for one last taste.
It turned out to be pretty fun. Sets were in the chest high range with the odd bigger one. You couldn’t say it was great, but there were only 4 or 5 of us in the water and sometimes the inside section stood up very nicely thank you.
After the boards were put away and the dry clothes pulled on, there was one last mission to be accomplished – dinner. So it was off to one of my favourite Ulladulla venues, namely the bowlo. Got there just in time too. Steaks and beers and surfed out… wouldn’t be dead for quids said Paul.
And ya wouldn’t!

Cleaner this morning than at this time yesterday – and the swell still pushes on. It’s a touch smaller, but it looks as though the settings are very close to yesterday’s. The wind is lighter too and at the moment it’s offshore. As you can see from the forecast below, it’s set to stay side- offshore this morning and the swell should be more than adequate for surfing purposes all day.
I’ll try to grab a few more snaps and update you later on this morning.
High tide was around 0638.
Here’s the Bureau’s call:
