A bit of swell on Fri. 13 April

Occasional sets at DY point this am.

Hello Friends,

Curious. As anticipated yesterday, the swell did peak late yesterday, but given the average period of 10 sec and 2-3 metres of south swell, it’s surprisingly small (to me, anyway!) at Dee Why. That said, it’s not flat this morning. A dozen or so are at the point as I write this and every now and then a chest high wave comes through. They seemed pretty rare during the time I watched. The beach break north from the club is showing a touch more size, but about the same consistency and, thanks to the low tide, it’s more close-outs than anything else.

By the look of the data from Eden, I’m punting that the waves will stay much the same through today. The Bureau says that the wind will be light SW-S this morning and then will swing to the SE/E 8-13kts this afternoon.

The models are still showing a long period pulse for tomorrow in our region, but at this stage there is no obvious sign of it on the Eden buoy. However the size has gone up a little since midnight, so we just might get another bounce in swell.

Go well with your day and check back later because I’ll update if conditions change significantly.
shutdown coming up for this guy at Dee Why
