Sunny skies and light westerly breezes at 0730. Plus there are little south lines and from the look of the MHL data, the swell energy levels are similar to yesterday when there were occasional wobbly knee to waist plus sets from Dee Why to Longy. I took the mal out yesterday morning and managed to catch a few little fun ones. Set the expectations at going for a paddle and you should be about right. For the record, the Sydney buoy was showing 1.3 m of 12-sec SSE at 0500. Low tide was at 0840 and is now coming into a moderate 1.31 m high at 1430. Should be sunny and warm today and the NE seabreeze should kick up by lunchtime.
Outlook is for conditions to bobble along on a gradual downward trend. Tomorrow and Friday aren’t looking too exciting and Saturday’s got a question mark, but there seems to be some prospect for a fun session at east spots on Sunday morning. Here’s hoping!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
