Hello Friends,

A good thing has happened to the swell overnight. The average period has bumped up to 9 seconds across the east coast. Here in Sydney, we’re looking at an average swell height at sea of around 2 metres. That means shoulder high on the bigger sets at spots exposed to the SSE. The wind call for today is light E-NE in the morning, grading to 15-20 kts N-NE this afternoon. The general trend is for a gradual decrease in size over the day, but there is some hope that the average period may actually improve a bit through tomorrow.

We’re due for another change through the Sydney region tomorrow, and ahead of it the wind is set to be 20-25 kts from the north.

After Friday though… gee… can we talk about something else?

It looks as though conditions for the Sunday morning paddle out at Warriewood will have nearly ideal conditions – light N wind and only a tiny NE windswell. We reckon the action will take around an hour from the time you pull on the rubber, to the time you’re walking back up the beach. A little activism to start your Sunday, what could be better! If you can get along to the conference sessions on Saturday, please, please do the online rego thing so we can get the catering sorted. That rego link again: http://tinyurl.com/39w8y9

Go well with your day!
