Sydney looking small to tiny, Cali same

Posted by: on February 28th, 2020

Hello Friends,
When the buoy data is showing a metre at 6 seconds from the SSE, you know it’s going to be tiny to unsurfable in Sydney this morning. The morning SSW wind might be okay in a sideshoreish way if there were waves, but there aren’t. So, I’d say you have a rest day – just like here in Southern California.
I’ve grabbed a couple of snaps from Surfline cameras for you today. The first was taken an hour or so down at Ventura where the wind is unseasonably warm and offshore, but as you can see it’s only catchable on the longest boards…

The second picture is from Santa Cruz’s Steamer Lane where there are chest to shoulder high waves every now and then. Too bad it’s 6 hours drive from here… and the water’s about 12-13C.

Weather Situation
A ridge of high pressure extends along the New South Wales coast in the wake of a cold front which moves through the northern waters this afternoon. Little change to this pattern is expected with southeast to northeasterly winds predominating along the coast for the coming days. Later on the weekend or during the new week, there is the potential for a coastal trough to extend from the Coral Sea into the New South Wales northern waters.
