Zippo for Monday morning

Hello Friends,

Good morning for a paddle at Dee Why, but don’t expect to catch anything above knee high. Swell at sea was a 0.8 of a metre at 9 seconds from the ENE, so a knee high wave face was a big one.

Still, it’s a glorious sunny morning, so there is that!

The swell models continue to project flatness or near enough through Wednesday. From Thursday it looks as though we’ll go into a southerly regime on both the wind and swell fronts. Thursday morning could possibly see early energy at south magnets with okay wind, but by afternoon the southerly seems likely to on top of it.

Have yourself a great Monday everyone!
