A brief Monday evening update for you. Went out and about this afternoon with the intention of getting in the water. But the swell was still settling in and nothing really took my fancy. I’m sure you know the drill – you drive around looking, but you just can’t get enthused, or you run out of time or both.
Dee Why point was one of the better options in my view, but the folks I saw in the water at Curly and Manly as well may have begged to disagree. The wind was lightly onshore, so it kind of gave everything that slightly lumpy, unkempt look. Swell angle is SSE at the moment. It’s a touch over two metres at 11 seconds apart.
This afternoon, the period was mostly shorter than that, so it was farily setty. PB and I went down to Manly to see if the wind was a little less onshore. Wasn’t really much less affected than Dee Why. Went out to the Bower and watched a little group of bodyboarders playing around at Winki. Nothing much was getting around into the Bower, but every now and then someone would jag a waist high thing.
After tiring of watching and shooting at the Bower, we went back to Dee Why point. As I was walking down the steps for a better angle, I saw RealSurf forum identity Coops take off on a pretty reasonable one.
