Not a cloud in the sky when I climbed aloft to the RealSurf crow’s nest to check the surf for the first time today. As you can see from the snap below, we’re still going sideways with the wave situation. There were a few keen types in the water near Kiddies but waves looked to be knee high at best. It was too small for the point to be doing anything.
As of 0700 North Head was seeing 3-4 kts of NNW breeze. The Bureau says it’ll swing around to the NE and come up to 10-15 kts later. Out at sea, the MHL buoy was seeing 0.8 m from the ENE in the pre-dawn hours. Unfortunately the period was a wind choppy 5 seconds. So, it’s super tiny and super gutless.
Outlook you ask? May I direct you to the Goat’s freshly baked forecast below …
