Swell arrived in force late yesterday and this morning sees it hitting south spots with wave faces in the 2-2.5m range. At Dee Why it doesn’t look super clean, but there are definitely some fun sections to be had if you know what you’re doing. Out at sea the swell is coming into Sydney from the SSE at about 9 seconds apart, Average size is close to 3 metres this morning.
From the look of the models, we can expect the juice levels to fade through the day, but with luck it will be gradual and not too dramatic. On current indications, I think you can count on there being something in the surfable range right through the weekend. This morning looks to be the peak though.
Wind is set to be SE to ESE over the next 48 hours, so wave hunters will be pulling on their wetties in southern end carparks up and down the length of Sydney’s coast.
If you’re a weekend warrior, I’ve got good news because it currently looks as though we could have quite good conditions on Sunday… I’ll be keen to see what the Goat says on this one…
Next tide is a low just before 0900.
