Too tiny to surf this morning at Dee Why. But people are trying anyway so kudos for keeping the stoke alive.
Wind bump at sea is a metre at 4-5 seconds from the NE. Average wave height should get into the waist high range at exposed spots – if you’re a fan of surfing in onshore conditions. On the good news front, Beachwatch is reporting clean and 24C water.
The Goat should be along later with his thoughts about the weekend and next week’s surf prospects. I’ve got my fingers crossed.
Go well and mask up!
