Another day of flatness – or near enough – in both Sydney and SoCal (picture above is a screenshot from one of Surfline’s Ventura cams). Nice weather in both places though.
I see that water quality is on the suss side along the Manly stretch and at lagoon entrances, so might be good to let the sun cook it while you wait for the predicted (slight) increase in swell from the south due later.
Surfwise Sydney could maybe, possibly get a little more interesting on Thursday morning when south magnets could be lighting up and the wind is coming out of the SW.
No such hope in prospect for your correspondent here in California.
Have a top old day everyone!
