Chilly, sunny and offshore with sets into the waist plus range at Dee Why when I checked this morning at 0730. There was only one person in the water at the point braving the cold but clean conditions and I couldn’t see anyone north from there toward No Mans. The lines were quite long and despite a low tide around 0755, they seemed to be breaking very close to shore. The MHL buoy was showing 1.6 metres of 8 second energy from the SSE for Sydney. From the look of the data, the Bureau is right to predict a gradual decline back to about a metre by the end of the day. It’ll be interesting to see the Goat’s take on our prospects when his latest surf prediction rolls out later today. I’m wondering what his take will be on the surf outlook for mid next week… wavewatch looks crazy but ECM is meh.
Have a top old day everyone!
