Weds 4 April at Dee Why

Published by at 12:05 pm under Surf reports

Hello Friends,

Light east breeze and a few showers around to kick things off this morning. We have some low but longish period south swell in Sydney for those equipped with the right gear. Dee Why is showing the occasional knee to waist high set along the beach and, more rarely still, at the point.

The Bureau is calling for the wind to swing around to the NE but not to get much above 10-15 kts.

Currently the MHL buoy for Sydney is showing average period of 10 sec (with peaks to 14 sec!) with an average height of around the 1.5 metre mark. That should mean the hope of the odd chest high set at beaches facing south.

Tomorrow is set to have NW wind ahead of a south change. The computer models are not overly optimistic about the prospect for an improvment in size or power though. In fact, I’d say swell energy could be peaking over the morning hours today because it looks like the maximum period has started to roll off.

Friday is expected to be S-SE at 20-25 kts, so although there should be bigger wave faces around, the surface conditions will probably not be all that appetising.

Hope the day ahead plays out well for you!
