Another amazing day

Posted by: on April 28th, 2009

Hello Friends,
Your crazy webmaster spent a couple hours shooting stills and vid at DY this arvo. Putting some pics up for main page, more in this post too.

It was extremely crowded on the main peak out in front of the SLSC. The point was busy too, but also smaller and less consistent than the beachy. I surfed there myself this morning and it was just as jammed and just as consistent then too. I’d love to know how many people got a wave off that peak today (must be hundreds) and how many waves came through (must be a couple thousand at least). And it was just one of numerous places where you could’ve surfed in Sydney.

And, from the look of the MHL data from up and down the coast, we’ve copped the best of the energy levels (biggest and longest periods).

Here’s the latest forecast from the Bureau for your consideration. From the look of the models, the swell should stick around for another couple days – at least. Looks as though the morning’ll be the go tomorrow.

Sydney Coastal Waters, Broken Bay to Port Hacking and 60nm seawards:
Tuesday until midnight: Wind: S/SW 20/25 knots.Sea: 2 to 3 metres.Swell: S/SE 1.5 to 2 metres.
Wednesday: Wind: S/SW 10/15 knots, reaching 15/20 knots at first. Easing to S/SE 5/10 knots during the day, E/SE later.Sea: 1 to 2 metres, abating to less than 1 metre.Swell: S/SE 1.5 to 2 metres.
Thursday: Wind: S/SW 5/15 knots.
Friday: Wind: NW/SW 5/15 knots.

First tide tomorrow is a low at 0540.
