Stunner of a morning, but it looks like you’d be doing well to catch something with a thigh-high wave face. The point might possibly work (on the bomb sets) if you have a rescue board or something similar. But really, for all practical purposes, it’s flat. If you’re really hanging out to get wet, I’d be checking up toward Longy or around at Curly on the off chance. The Sydney MHL buoy was seeing 1.1 metres of 7-second dribble the SE as of 0600. Wind was out of the west at 6-7 kts around 0740.
Weather call is for partly cloudy and a high of 22 along the coast. Ocean is still on the cool side at 17C but water’s clean.
Both the Wavewatch and ECMWF WAF models are showing tiny conditions today and tomorrow, but while the latter isn’t predicting anything exciting, Wavewatch shows a little south influx of 1.3 metre, 9 second stuff (waist plusses at good exposures). But apart from that, the long range outlook is a very Spring like, ie weak and tiny dribble in the ankle to knee high range.
Have a top old Monday everyone!
