The plan was to hit it early this morning before the wind kicked in. A 7-second period south wind swell of two metres was providing weak looking waist to chest high peaks along the Dee Why stretch. The short period means that it’s really not wrapping onto the point and I’d expect the magnet spots to be restricted to just a few optimally angled peaks. It also seemed to be somewhat inconsistent. But, if you were in the right spot…
Tide was low at 0715 and will be back to high at 1320.
Wind call is for southerly, but the day started with offshores. The southerly is supposed to get to 15-25kts before weakening to a light easterly late.
Beachwatch is reporting pollution likely from Curly south to Manly. Bronte and Tama are on the list as well.
Swell is expected to decrease a little across the day but to maybe still be surfable for tomorrow and Friday. Some of the models are saying that Saturday could see a little more energy at south swell spots – maybe into the chest plus range if we’re lucky.
Next week is shaping to be pretty quiet according to various long range predictions. Hope they’re too pessimistic.
Have a fine old Wednesday one and all!
A a southerly change is moving up the New South Wales north coast and weakening. Winds along the coast will turn briefly northerly overnight and early Thursday ahead of another change developing on the south coast Thursday afternoon. The change will extend to Sydney Waters Thursday evening and to far north coast early Friday. Behind the change a high pressure ridge is expected to develop across the Tasman Sea by Saturday.
