Swell has shifted away from yesterday’s more easterly mix to something closer to south. There are a few sets about thanks to the 2.5 metres of SSE swell at 9 seconds apart, but it is much less consistent than yesterday. The day started out drizzly and grey, but it was glassy and when the waves came, they were extra clean (unlike the water). Lots of folks in the water at south Narrabeen when I checked. They were scattered from south of Mactier street to the north end of Gardens and sets were into the shoulder plus to maybe head plus range. Around at Dee Why there were a fair few for a rainy Monday morning and waves were in the chest plus range with the odd bomb.
Wind should stay favourable this morning before turning southerly around midday and then it will swing toward the east late.
So get out now and deal with the high tide I’d say.
The swell should stick around for another day at least, so surf prospects will really depend upon what the wind does. Tomorrow’s call is for east to NE wind, so there might be something fun in the north corners.
Have yourself a great day!
ps: went shooting at the weekend, so galleries up soon…
