Thar she goes (swell that is)

Hello Friends,

Oh dear, as feared, our swell is going out the door backwards. Hope you jagged a few yesterday because it looks as though we’re bumping along at knee to waist high this morning. The long-period pulse that arrived around dawn on Monday began fading last night. As I tap this out, it’s still around the 9 second mark on average, but the peak periods which yesterday peaked at 14 seconds (!) are now around 11. Average swell height at sea has gone from nearly 2 metres to about a metre. The only good thing is that the direction has moved toward the Sydney sweet spot of 135 degrees (SE).

The surf outlook for the remainder of the week along the entire east coast is, not to put too fine a point on it, dismal.

I really hope to be proven completely and utterly wrong on this call…

Go well with your day!
