Hello Friends,

Sparkling morning with an icy SW turning making a wine dark sea. One of those mornings where every detail seems to pop. Not a lot of surf activity at the Dee Why end of the beach, but there appeared to be possibilities as you went north toward the pole.

As of 0710, wind was west 10-15kts at North Head. The 0500 data from the MHL buoy showed 1.6 metres of 9-sec SSE swell. Tide’s dropping to the low at 0935 High will be at 1615. It should stay sunny and get to 19. Water should be ok most places and running about 18.

Waves this morning should be in the waist range with the odd plus on the bombs.

MHL’s nearshore forecast projects a gradual declinein swell height across the day and through tomorrow.

Weather Situation
A low pressure trough lies across the central New South Wales coast while a high pressure system dominates remainder of the state. This will promote southeast to southwesterly winds across New South Wales waters at first. The coastal trough will weaken later Saturday as the high pressure system moves over New South Wales, turning winds northeast to northwesterly for central and southern waters.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight
Winds
Southeast to southwesterly 10 to 15 knots becoming variable about 10 knots in the middle of the day then becoming north to northwesterly 10 to 15 knots in the evening.

Sticky: South spots Saturday

Hello Friends,

We have another morning with a little wave activity. It’s south spots only though because the 1.5 metre SSE swell is only about 8 seconds apart on average, so it’s pretty directional. Places not optimally positioned will be tiny to flat (looking at you Collaroy), or only marginal (say hi to Gardens and Northy). Wind was light and offshore for the early and skies were pretty much clear from horizon to horizon. Next tide’s a high at 0915. Low will be along at 1530.

According to the Bureau, the wind will become variable around lunch time and the swell should could come up a touch more. That sounds like a recipe for waves of some sort pretty much all day – at south spots.

Sunday looks like going steadily smaller and more marginal as the little south pulse subsides across the day. Wind should be okay though.

A little shout out to you weekend warriors: we’re almost to the halfway point in our crowdfunding campaign and we’ve still got quite a bit to raise. How ’bout you make your pledge today? 🙂
