Bit of a delay between observation and report. Had to do a meeting. You know how it is. Anyway, after leaving Dee Why, I came over the hill to find Curly was just as fat and marginal. A few bods were in the water, but you wouldn’t say it was all that impressive. Long waits were the order of the morning, and when the waves came they were pretty weak. Only a few folk in the water giving it a go.
Around the next corner at Freshie, the wind was into it and the conditions were only good enough to attract a couple people on longboards. Even a real fan of the spot wouldn’t feel hard done by to have missed it this morning. On to Manly then. And there it was also severely affected by the tide and the south swell direction. There were one or two hopeful types bobbing about down at North Steyne. No one was bothering with Queenscliff and a little group was working an extra micro peak just next to the stormwater pipe. Basically looked like a get wet exercise more than anything else.
