Swell was 2.5 metres at 14 seconds apart from the south to SE and wind was lightly offshore under mostly clear skies at 0645. Set wave faces at the point were 1.5x overhead for the already healthy crowd. Consistency seemed to be pretty good too. Sets along the beach were a similar size but the banks continue to look pretty iffy, with long rides the exception rather than the rule. I’m calling the point 8/10 and the beachy 6/10 (for lack of banks).
Tide is heading to a low at 1035.
The Bureau’s modelling has the swell dropping back into the two metre range as the day goes along. And tomorrow should be smaller again, but still with fun size waist plus sets at magnet spots. It’s set to cog down again on Thursday and be pretty small on Friday.
So get out and enjoy if you can and say hi if you see me wandering around with the camera!
Bomb DY set at 0645
Not gonna make this one
Beachy left about to claim a victim
Kneelo picks up a right at 0645
A high south of Tasmania extends a ridge along the New South Wales coast. The high should be centred over the Tasman Sea by Wednesday. A cold front is expected to reach the south coast Thursday morning bringing southerly winds which should then extend north along the coast before stalling on the Mid- North coast on Friday.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
Variable about 10 knots becoming northeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the evening then decreasing to about 10 knots in the late evening.
Below 1 metre.
Southerly 2 to 3 metres, decreasing to 2 metres later in the evening.
Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.
Wednesday 15 April
North to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots, reaching up to 20 knots offshore in the late evening.

As of 0600 the swell was 2.5 metres at 13.8 seconds from 165 degrees (SE). Set wave faces at Dee Why beach and the point were overhead by a bit, but it didn’t look quite as big as this time yesterday. A healthy crowd was on it by the time I snapped my first pics for the day at around 0740.
The Bureau tells us the swell will fade as the day goes along, however it’ll be offshore and sunny, so I’d say you’d get something whenever you’re able to get to the beach today.
I’ll be heading out with the camera soon, so expect another tranche of pictures later!
Here are links to the galleries from yesterday: Dee Why point mid-morning (193 pics), and North Narrabeen midday (449 pics)
Have a great one, from what the Goat says there’s more to come in the next week!
Solid head high plus faces on the bombs though.
0740 and busy in the water
The crowd’s was keeping busy with the bombs.
A low pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is moving steadily east, while a high pressure ridge over central Australia pushes into New South Wales. This ridge will be short-lived, however, as the next cold front will bring a gusty southwesterly change to the coast later Saturday. Behind this front another, stronger, high pressure system is expected to become the dominant synoptic feature in the region from Sunday.
