We’re into flatness good and proper

Standup or not at all…

Standup paddle the only way to go this am at DY

Hello Friends,

If you don’t happen to have a standup paddleboard at your disposal this morning in Sydney, you’ll be struggling to catch anything much. With an average period at around 6 seconds and an average height at sea of barely a metre, the little east windswell washing into our shores isn’t exactly packing a punch.

The Bureau’s call is for a light NE’r early but as the day goes along, it should accelerate into 20-25 kt range. That should mean some small hope of a late afternoon uptick into the barely surfable range.

With the exception of the far northern regions, the latest long range surf outlook for the NSW coast  remains pretty bleak. A persistent high in the lower Tasman seem set to bumper the swell away from us for the next week at least. A couple of the models are showing a possibility of a little south windswell toward Friday, but at this stage it’s not looking too impressive – maybe into the waist to chest high range and onshore.

Happily for the Bells contest, Huey seems to be smiling in their direction. Late Thursday-Friday in particular looks particularly interesting…

Have yourself a top old day!
