Dee Why this morning

Hello Friends,

Same old, same old for Sydney surfers. Grey skies, 15-20 kts of SSE wind and a metre or so (at sea) of SE windswell. For Dee Why this means almost no one in the water because the conditions are so ordinary. Biggest sets I saw were in the waist high range. They were/are pretty soft and gutless looking.

As of this writing, there’s no real sign of imminent improvement in the live buoy data for the NSW coast. Average periods from Eden to Tweed Heads is rattling around under the 8 second mark.  The average size at sea ranges from a metre in the far north and far south to around the 2 metre mark in the central regions of the state.

The forecast models  continue to predict an influx of 2-3 metre east swell overnight. It’s due to stick around through Saturday, but the peak hours are likely to be from late tomorrow through Friday night. According to the Bureau we’ll have 13-18 kts of ESE wind (blergh) tomorrow and 10-20 kts ESE on Friday.  Not exactly a recipe for all time conditions, but there should be size around, and that’s a good thing!

Have yourself a top old day!
