Wonderful Wednesday

Posted by: on April 15th, 2009

Hello Friends,

Didn’t plan for it to be that way, but Wednesday 15 April 2009 ended up being devoted to the great works of Huey.

I figured there’d be waves this morning, so I started by checking out Dee Why and Gardens. Both had waves, but I sort of had a yen to catch some more at Gardens. After filing a report, I jammed down and went for a surf for a couple hours.

When I finished, I grabbed my cameras, and set up on the beach to catch a few snaps and some video sequences. I was there until noon!

It was unbelievably consistent and good – all day. Crowd was big before 0900, backed off a little toward lunch, then picked up again for the late. I reckon that at any given point during the day, there were 150-200 people in the water from south of Mactier St to Northy. But the waves were just pouring through, so I don’t think too many went home waveless.

After lunch and some unavoidable work on the magazine, I went out again. Had a look at Dee Why (very good) and Curly (good at north end, very good from mid to south end) and then looped back to Gardens again. Below you’ll find a tiny fraction of the pictures I shot. My plan is to put everything online eventually, but this will give you a feeling for Wednesday along the northern beaches…
