Hello Friends,

Still some juice left in the tank for those prepared to brave the 10 degree air temps this morning. Wind was out of the SW at 10-20 kts, depending on where you were standing. Overnight the average period of 12 seconds slumped back to around 10. That may sound like not a great change, but it will mean that the triple-overhead sets I videoed yesterday (see the pics I put up late yesterday evening) at South Narrabeen will not be there this morning. Not that I’d expect it to be soft and small you understand, but the energy in this pulse has peaked and is declining pretty rapidly.

As of around 0800, the swell was out of the SE at an average height of 2 metres with some sets touching the 4 metre mark. When one of those arrives at Dee Why point, you get a solidly overhead wave face. So, it’s still better than it is 80-90% of the time!

I’ll get out and about again to see if I can get any more interesting footage and snaps. If possible I’ll try to also find time to cut down the stuff I shot yesterday in the 10 out of 10 conditions at south Narrabeen so you can have a look. That will depend on magazine obligations though, so don’t hold me to it!

The wind is due to pick up to 25-35 kts or thereabouts from the SW, so surfable conditions may not last… and we’re due to get a few showers as that SW change develops around noon in Sydney.

Go well with your day!
