Tide was low at 0615 so by the time most people were paddling out for the early, it had turned and was heading back in. That should add a little extra energy to the diminished and now more southerly swell. Out at sea it’s a couple metres at 10 seconds apart. The change from SE to S has reduced the number of surf options and even at exposed spots such as No Mans, the biggest set I saw was a bit over head high. But mostly it was in the waist to chest range.
Around at the Collaroy to Narrabeen stretch there were some small peaks near Marquesas and what looked to be a few options immediately north of there. But it wasn’t as big as Dee Why.
This looks like being the day becaue tomorrow the wind goes southerly for the next 48-72 hours at least. Longer term though it does look as though we’ll be treated to another fun pulse at the end of the week.
Wind is set to be offshore all day and the skies should be sunny as well. I’ll try to get out and about with the camera, so wave hi if you see me!
A high pressure system is moving towards the Bass Strait extending a ridge to northern New South Wales. Later on Sunday a low pressure system will develop over the northern Tasman Sea and deepen on Monday as the high moves southeast of Tasmania maintaining the ridge to the northwest of the state. The low is expected to move slowly east away from the coast during Tuesday and Wednesday.
