Well, call me surprised. Looking at conditions last night, and taking the forecast and models into account, I figured this morning would be flat.
Happily I can report it isn’t. In fact the swell has come up slightly from yesterday and as of 0500 was out of the SSE at about a metre at 11 seconds. That’s translating into knee to waist plus at the magnet spots. My quick run around for the Saturday radio report revealed knee high at Northy, waist high but shutting down right on the sand at south Narra and knee to waistish from about the Lugga to No Mans, but nothing else either side of that zone.
Saturday’s first tide is a high at 0845. We’ll be back to low at 1430.
Wind call is for northerly 15-20 kts, turning west NW this evening. As the day got started, wind was light from the north.
Outlook is for a rainy and tiny to flat day tomorrow and not so red hot for Monday either. But beyond that there seems to be some prospect for a wave across Tuesday-Weds and maybe from Tuesday through to the following week – if the more optimistic of the models have called it.
Have yourself a fantastic Saturday and get into it if you can!
Let’s get started August 2015

What we had at SE magnet spots are a few knee to waist plus sets every now and again

In line with the low expectations, this morning sees another day of waiting around for something to happen. I suppose if you had a kayak or something of similar buoyancy, it might be possible to pick up a little energy every now and then. But I think that’d be quite an ask where Dee Why’s concerned.
The MHL buoy was detecting a metre of SSE swell at close to 11 seconds apart as of 0600. Conditions are quite similar down at Eden, so nothing in the data to offer encouragement.
Outlook for the rest of the work week remains pretty hopeless according to the models. But the weekend could see a vigorous south swell arrive on Saturday and last into Sunday. The wind outlook is mixed, so while it may be pretty big (4 metre range by some estimates), but it might be a little too southerly and too strong for some places.
Anyway, have a good Monday!

A high pressure system will move slowly eastwards across New South Wales and weaken during Monday. A vigorous westerly airstream is expected to develop over much of NSW from Tuesday associated with a broad low pressure trough to the south of Australia. A strong cold front will cross the state during Thursday and Friday.
Forecast for Monday until midnight
- Westerly 10 to 15 knots turning northwesterly in the evening. Winds reaching up to 20 knots offshore in the late evening.
- Around 1 metre.
- Southerly below 1 metre.
Tuesday 29 July
- Northwesterly 15 to 20 knots, reaching up to 25 knots at times from the late morning.
- 1 to 1.5 metres, increasing to 1 to 2 metres during the morning.
- Southerly below 0.5 metres.
Wednesday 30 July
- Northwesterly 15 to 25 knots decreasing to 10 to 15 knots during the day.
- 1 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 metre during the afternoon or evening.
- South to southwesterly below 0.5 metres.

Swell is still out of the S by SSE this morning. It’s showing half the size on the MHL buoys though. On the other hand, the average period has improved to 11 seconds. The end result is chest high sets on the beach and infrequent and smaller ones at the point.
Tide was low at 0820 and will hit high at 1445.
The showers are set to ease as the day goes along, but so too is the swell.
This morning’s swell models are showing the swell height gradually dropping over the next three days. But, they also show some long period 14+ second south energy coming into play. So, while the swell height may be only in the metre to metre plus range, we could still see some fun and juicy chest plus category.
I don’t like the wind outlook, but we might get lucky for the early sessions…
Have yourself a top Tuesday!
A high pressure system over the Great Australian Bight is extending a strengthening ridge across Victoria and New South Wales. The high is becoming the dominant synoptic feature over southeastern Australia during the next few days, moving only slowly eastward and entering the southwestern Tasman on Thursday.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
Southeasterly 10 to 15 knots.
Below 1 metre.
Southerly about 2 metres.
Wednesday 30 May
Southeasterly 10 to 15 knots.
Below 1 metre.
Southerly 1 metre.
Thursday 31 May
South to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots decreasing to variable below 10 knots during the morning.
Below 1 metre.
Southerly 1.5 metres.

Beautiful Saturday morning in Sydney and as an extra bonus, we have a few small SSE waves too. Nothing big, but the period was a reasonable 11 seconds or so and that means the occasional chest high set turning up at spots such as Dee Why that like the swell direction. The models say that the swell should pick up a little as the day goes along, so with luck, by lunch there could be the odd head high bomb at the exposed spots.
Outlook is for the swell to fade overnight and leave us only a few minor scraps tomorrow. It then looks as though next week will be pretty small to flat until the next pulse comes in around Wednesday.
So get out and enjoy your Saturday!
Tides: H @0900, L @1515
Weather Situation from the BoM
A broad high pressure ridge lies across the northern Tasman Sea, while another high lies to the west of New South wales. A trough of low pressure will bring a weak southerly change to much of the New South Wales coast later Saturday or Sunday before the ridge becomes dominant once again. Another trough looks like to bring a southerly change to region Tuesday and Wednesday.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight
Winds: Northwesterly 10 to 15 knots increasing to 10 to 20 knots during the morning then tending northwest to southwesterly up to 15 knots around midday. Seas: Up to 1.5 metres. Swell: Southerly 2 metres.
Forecast for Sunday
Winds: Southeasterly 5 to 15 knots. Seas: Below 1 metre. Swell: Southerly about 2 metres decreasing to 1 metre late in the evening.
Forecast for Monday
Winds: North to northwesterly 10 to 15 knots. Seas: Below 1 metre. Swell: Easterly 1 metre.

Sets are getting smaller and further and further apart.
Hope you got a few over the weekend because this morning looks like the tail end of the swell for Sydney. Last night on dusk I was down at Dee Why with my mate Barry for some fishing and it was obvious that the swell was fading. The sets were not only less frequent but getting smaller too. This morning sees the trend extended in the logical direction. Only a couple people were in the water having a go at Dee Why. One was sitting over at the point and the other was pulling back from shutdowns along the beach. I really admire that dedication.
As the tide drops toward noon I reckon there should be the odd wave at the south exposed spots. Size on sets could possibly reach waist to chest high too…
Might have a closer look shortly…
