 You need a very long craft for today’s conditions

Hello Friends,

Nice morning in Sydney. A few picturesque clouds decorating the sky and no wind to speak of. So, what is it about this picture that I’d improve?

Well, for starters I’d like to put a word in Huey’s little shell-like ear about the wave settings. Surf situation remains marginal at Dee Why… marginal, but not totally flat if you have the right equipment. Sets are in the waist high range and they’re pretty far apart, but it looks like that will change soon.

The MHL buoy data from up north is showing the east swell ramping into the 3 metre range. We’re still sitting on about a metre, but the Bureau is saying that we could begin to see an improvement later today and that by tomorrow the ENE swell should be making its presence felt. For their part, the models continue to suggest that we’ll be looking at overhead conditions and NW breezes for Friday morning.

A strong SW change is due through Sydney around midnight Friday, so Saturday morning should start with 25-33 kts of S-SW wind and shoulder high (or better)  east swell.

Looks as though the swell will back off, but not go flat into the new week… and the long range models are showing quite an impressive looking south swell filling in from around late Tuesday…

All good I’d say!

Go well and get up to some good where you can.
