Looks as though there are a few fun little knee to waist plus sets along the beach at Dee Why. No one was in the water at the point, although I did see a set wave that looked mal-able. Wind was coming lightly from the SW at 0900. Tide was high at 0815 and is currently running out to the low at 1425. The MHL data from 0600 was showing a mix of dead south and NNE swell. The latter was around 1.5 m at 10 seconds apart. Yesterday afternoon I happened to be down at Curl Curl and there were definitely some nice looking NE lines coming in. Around at Dee Why though it was a lot quieter. So, start your hunt by checking your fave NE spots. Beachwatch says the water’s jumped from 19 to 21C too. Wind should be favourable this morning, but out of the NE from about midday.
The Bureau is calling for the swell settings to hang in there today and then for both to come up a bit tomorrow. Unfortunately the models show the period decreasing, plus the wind call is for it to go SE. So maybe hit it for the early. The next pulse looks like turning up midweek along with cloudy weather. At this stage the modelling shows it getting to around a metre at 10-11 sec.
Go forth and enjoy!
