Hello Friends,

Mellow morning along the northern beaches. Swell at sea is a metre from the SE at about 8 seconds, so it isn’t big anywhere, but there are little waves if you’re keen – and patient. I’d be taking my slow & weak waves board today and not expecting much above waist high. Thanks to the direction, there are likely to be a reasonable number of (tiny) options too. I saw rideable stuff up the beach from Dee Why, at far north Collaroy and at Long Reef. There were a few bods sitting in the water at Northy, but it didn’t look too exciting. Not really the place for SE anything.

Wind was light early and offshore. The Bureau’s calling for it to swing from the W/NW this morning to NW/NE at 10-15 kts in the afternoon. From the look of the charts, the swell isn’t likely to push up any more today. However, there is a prospect for a small improvement tomorrow and going into Tuesday. The wind will be an issue though, as the forecast is currently calling for 20-30 kts of NW wind ahead of a similarly breezy W/SW change.  It appears that the pulse will be short-lived and that the best combination of wind and swell size/direction for Sydney will be on Tuesday afternoon.

Have yourself a top old Sunday!
