Probably not big enough to surf at sth Narra WRL cam 0530
Mal-able sets at the point around 0640
Little lines up the beach at 0640
Although it was a bit hazy and smoky looking early, as I write this it looks as though we should have a sunny day with a few little waves. According to the MHL data as of 0400 there was 1.4 metres of 9 second SE wind swell washing in. That’s pretty similar to yesterday’s settings which gave us knee to chest high bumps before the tide swamped it.
Wind was light from the WNW early and after a variable morning, it should go N-NE and be 15-20kts this afternoon. Tide will be high at 1140, so surfable conditions should persist a little longer than yesterday.
The Goat dropped his forecast last night, so just roll down the page to see what he thinks of our prospects for the next week.
And have yourself a great Friday!
Winds will tend north to northeasterly as a high pressure system over the region slowly drifts east. A cold front is expected to enter the south coast early Saturday, with an associated southerly change expected to reach the north coast by Saturday evening. A high pressure ridge will develop over New South Wales in the wake of the front, bringing a return to northeasterly winds later on Sunday.
Forecast for Friday until midnight
Variable about 10 knots becoming north to northeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the late afternoon then turning northwesterly in the late evening.
About 1 metre.
Southerly below 1 metre.
Saturday 5 November
Strong Wind Warning for Saturday for Sydney Coast
North to northwesterly 15 to 25 knots shifting southwesterly 20 to 30 knots in the morning then tending southeast to southwesterly 15 to 25 knots in the late afternoon.
1 to 1.5 metres, increasing to 1.5 to 2.5 metres during the morning.
Southerly below 1 metre, increasing to 1.5 to 2.5 metres during the afternoon.
Sunday 6 November
Westerly 15 to 25 knots tending southeast to southwesterly 15 to 20 knots during the afternoon then tending northeast to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots during the evening.
Around 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 2 metres offshore during the morning.
Southerly 2 to 3 metres, decreasing to 1.5 to 2 metres during the morning.

We’ve clicked down another increment but there are still waves to be had on a sunny and beautiful Sunday morning at Dee Why. Swell is out of the SSE-SE, it’s about 1.4 metres with an average period of 9 seconds.
When I first checked it around 0830, we were still 45 minutes from high tide, so it was as full as it’ll get today. Set wave faces at the point were knee to waist-ish and along the beach knee to chest-ish. A fish or a mal would be the go.
Wind should stay light during the morning but by evening it could be out of the north at 15-20kts.
Tomorrow should be mostly sunny again, with SW wind in the morning and the swell should be bumping up a little from the south.
Tuesday still looks like seeing a more distinct improvement to the size at south facing spots and the pulse should stick around through Weds, although it looks like being smaller. The models are calling for periods in the 10-11 sec range. Tuesday wind is forecast to be 15-20kts SW in the morning, weakening later and swinging SE.
Have yourself a top old day and keep on smilin’

A much faded swell and sunny skies over the beaches at 0700 (but cloud lurking offshore). Outlook is for the swell to bump along at around the metre mark through the day. As of 0600 the MHL buoy was showing nearly 1.5 metres of 9-sec SE swell. Wind was minimal and the Bureau says we can expect it to be light this morning before gradually doing a summery switch to 15-20 kts of NE’ly.
Waves were infrequent at the point and not much more consistent along the beach. Average size of the catchable ones looked to be in the waist to maybe chest range. The tide was just on high when I grabbed the pictures, so maybe as it drops a bit there’ll be a slight improvement. Water still looks pretty ordinary though.
Outlook for the coming week is not too wonderful for surfing. All the models are telling the same story – namely that it’ll be tiny to flat until around Friday.
Might be a good week for catching up on the non-surfin’ parts of our lives. Anyway, ya still wouldn’t be dead for quids. Stay happy!
Generally much smaller than this one at 0700
Point looked quiet at 0700
Onshore winds are expected to turn more north to northeasterly over the next day or two as the high in the Tasman Sea drifts further east. Winds are expected to strengthen from late Tuesday ahead of a gusty west to southwesterly change extending along the coast on Wednesday.
