Hello Friends,

Hasn’t quite gone flat. It’s small though and you’ll need to get to a spot with reasonable exposure to the south where the little 8 sec, 1.5 metre S swell is getting in. Not much wind about along the northern beaches as the day gets started, but at more exposed spots (such as the Little Bay AWS, there’s already 10* kts of SSE’ly. The Bureau says that the wind should, if anything, drop off inshore as the morning goes along.

As I write this just after 0715, there are sets into the waist to chest high range on the bombs at Dee Why beach. Mostly it’s averaging a bit smaller. Seems to be reasonably consistent and the chop of yesterday afternoon has abated to a reasonable extent.

Outlook for tomorrow is for the swell to weaken a bit more, so I wouldn’t be feeling too annoyed if my Sunday schedule precluded surfing. There should be something very small about and the wind will only be lightly onshore.

Week ahead looks small to flat until Thursday-ish when a couple of the models are saying we could be in for a burst of seriously interesting ENE swell starting to fill in. This is right at the edge of the models’ forecast range, so it could as easily vanish in the meantime, but at the moment the call is for a very intense low to spin up in the eastern Tasman and then to come at us! (Currently the call seems to be for massive: ie 4-5 metres at 10-12 sec from the NE with not much wind).

Go well!
