Showery Sunday with waves

Published by at 8:56 am under Uncategorized

Hello Friends,

The swell is sticking around for Sydneysiders this morning. It’s a couple metres out at the MHL buoy, coming from the SE and about 8 seconds apart. The anticipated spike of longer period south swell did arrive, but it only lasted for an hour or two during the late evening hours. Sets at Dee Why are into the head high range on the bigger ones and it’s reasonably busy in the water. I wouldn’t be giving it a huge score because the conditions are generally pretty lumpy and messy. There isn’t too much wind to begin with, but the overnight dose of SE’ly hasn’t helped.

The Bureau’s call is for the SE’r to ease through the day and the swell to follow it down. So, it would seem that the plan is to get out there now.

Outlook for tomorrow is for the swell to be dropping into the chest high range on the average sets. Wind is due to be from the S-SE at 10-20 kts.

I will try to organise another of my podcast-vidcast-forecast thingees for this evening, so check back if that sounds interesting. I’m also just about done editing together a few waves I spotted on the 13th at Northy and Dee Why, so with luck, that’ll be posted to Realsurf.tv today as well.

One other thing to ask: do you have a good surf injury story (ideally one that’s happened to you or to a good mate)? If so, check out the news item I posted calling for folks like you to share the pain. My plan is to publish the best of the stories. Your deadline is this Friday, so get tapping on that keyboard!

Go well with your day!
