Gloom, rain, but waves still

Published by at 8:55 am under Surf reports

Hello Friends,

We wake up to yet another morning of gloomy grey skies and occasional showers – and waves. The swell is still around the 2 metre mark, but the juice level has dropped from yesterday’s 10 sec average to around 8 sec. Happily there still seem to be some 12 sec period sets in the mix and the direction is out of the SE. For Dee Why this means the crowd at the point are looking at sets into the shoulder high range at least. The beach is a touch bigger than that.

Wind is out of the south at 10-15 kts and the call from the Bureau is for E/SE 15-20 kts by this afternoon.

I managed to get out another of my video forecasts late last night. To see what I reckon for the next 7 days, check it out on RealSurf.tv (link above, right). It starts with a few waves from yesterday at the Bower and Winki. All good fun.

What’s the opposite of fun? Getting sidelined from surfing, that’s what. The physio tells me I’m out for a month at least, but that doesn’t compare to what’s happened to some of you. Misery loves company, so tomorrow I’m hoping there will be some true tales of surf injury woe in my inbox. Have you been through the wringer thanks to our beloved activity? I’d like to share it with the world if it’s okay with you. Just have a quick read of the news item right about misery loving company and then add your story via the email link.

Have yourself a top old day!
