Whadya know, not totally flat on Saturday morning

Posted by: on October 26th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Looks very tiny most places this morning, but if Northy is any guide, north corners are picking up waist plus waves. However, if you’re thinking about Dee Why, expect ankle to knee at the south end and knee to thigh up toward Longy. But there’s a bit of a wait in lake like conditions between the sets. There’s a mix of microscopic south and about a metre of 8-second NNE bump as the day gets started.
First tide of the day was the high at 0730 and by the time it’s low again at 1330, the wind should be 20-30 kts from the north, swinging SW toward dusk.


Looked like a millpond at south Narra and then this little line came in

Thunderous set sweeps into DY

No takers at Whiterock

Northy showing energy at 0630

Terrifying comber at No Mans 0645
