Bit of a blah morning surfwise. There were a few people in the water at Dee Why chasing the odd junky, waist high set under drizzly skies and with 9-11 kts of NNE texturing up the little NE wind bump.
Wondering about the surf prospects for the week ahead? Well the Mighty Goat has taken time out of his busy travel schedule to share his thoughts on our prospects for the coming week. And, as always, I commend it to you.
Go well and Vale Queen Elizabeth.
