Along the beaches, part the second

Posted by: on February 27th, 2009

Went for a look at Curly & Freshy around 0830 after the school run. Curly was about the same as yesterday, but thanks to the lighter winds, it was looking a little more attractive. Not that many more in the water though. I wouldn’t want to be accused of overstating the situation though. The biggest sets I saw were struggling to make waist high, and the moment of peak energy was generally pretty brief. Waves would stand up over a bank and then quickly subside as they were swallowed by a gutter.

Here are a couple snaps to fill in the picture a little.

This one actually ran for a few metres - South Curly, 0830.

Drove on around the corner to the south Curly headland carpark for a squizz at Freshy and Manly. Again, there were a fair sprinkling of bods in the water at both places. Pretty much seemed to all be mals – understandably enough. Waves at Freshy were extremely tiny. Biggest thing I saw was around thigh-high. But you could get the odd multi-metre glide over near the rocks at the south end.

Manly was not putting on much of a show – to the extent that one can judge such things looking over the back of the waves. From what I could see, the folk in the water were not only a thousand miles from care, they were about that far from something like a wave. But good on ’em for getting in for a paddle!
Don't those SUP riders look as though they're shepherding the mal people?
