There seem to be some small waves around this morning at Dee Why. A few bods were flopping around at the point where the sets look to be in the waist to chest high range. Quality looks okay but the period is only around the 8 second mark, so they’re not exactly juicy. Swell direction is now ESE and from the look of the charts it will, if anything, get more east in it as the day goes along.
Wind was lighlty offshore when I checked it at first light, but the call is for the wind direction to swing more to the northern quarters. The good thing is that it’s set to be light all day.
With luck we should start to see the swell perk up a little as the day goes along. The average heights up the coast from about Coffs north is currently sitting above the two metre mark. Given that the swell generator is up that way, I think we can at least entertain hopes of improvement for late this afternoon.
oops gotta do the 702 ABC radio report… back shortly
Next tide is a high at 1043 followed by a low at 1612.
