Found myself up at Warriewood with a camera, so I dropped by the Narrabeen to Collaroy stretch. There was a tiny little peak just off the beach near the alley, then another couple south from carparks. To describe the activity on those peaks as surfing would be a somewhat generous expansion of the usual meaning. Looked like the best shot was to prone them in.
From the look of the charts, it could be 48 hours or so before the swell comes back. It looks like small to medium south swell once it does. General outlook right now seems to be for Sydney to have nearly flat conditions through Tuesday arvo and then to get two or three days of generally south swell.
