Hello Friends,

You know how it is when you come back to your ordinary Monday routine after a big weekend away. Well, that’s me! But, surf situation first. And we basically have almost, but not quite, nothing. Wind is currently lightly out of the north along the northern beaches and more around to the NE on the south side of the bridge. The MHL buoy is showing a 1 metre SSE windswell with an average period of around 8 seconds. There’s some 14 sec period component showing in there, but the buoy doesn’t break down the direction, so all I can think is that we may see the very occasional set bigger than the ambient knee to waist high stuff currently showing on exposed stretches of beach.

The general outlook for the Sydney region is another couple days of pretty ordinary conditions. Around about late Weds-early Thursday, we could see a little boost from the south as the wind gets around to SE. Not looking like it’ll get real impressive though, maybe up into the shoulder high range at south swell spots (but windy with it).

Right now the weekend is looking a bit more interesting as the main energy swings around to the NE. Again, it’s not currently looking like getting particularly big, but I’m hoping for some fun size stuff into the head high range at my local ENE favouring spots.

Just a quick follow up on the Surfrider Foundation weekend… it went really well! We had a good roll up for the Saturday sessions and the Warriewood paddle out on Sunday. I think the long term consequences will be good for surfing in Australia as Surfrider becomes an ever more effective voice for our interests. I hope one day that having a current membership with Surfrider will be as much a given for active surfers as having an extra leggie or a back up pair of boardies!
