Light southerly breeze, clearing showers and a fading SE swell this morning. Surface conditions are junky and only a few extra keen folk in the water at Dee Why point. No one having a go around at the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch because it’s dropped to unsurfable at the south end and blown out at the north.
Not the best news if you’ve got time for a surf, but for those of us on deadline at least we won’t have missing-it butterflies.
Annoyingly the bright prospects for a big weekend seem to have vaporised from the forecast models overnight. Bah. Oh well, that’s surfin’.
Have yourself a top old Tuesday one and all.
