Running around the beaches

Posted by: on July 4th, 2009

Hello again Friends,

Wandered around the landscape on your behalf this morning and gathered a few snaps to share…

Started at Manly where the crowds were surprisingly modest for a sunny Saturday morning. Guess that cold wind is keeping a fair number of us out of the water for the early. Sets were into the chest high range, but waits were pretty long. Clean and amusing looking though.

Around to Freshwater next, and there the crowds were equally uncrowdy early. Swell was more consistent, but the shutdown factor was very high when I watched it a couple hours after high tide.

Curly was quite well attended with people scattered from one end to the other of the beach. Sets were into the overhead range and the folks were doing a lot of peak and section chasing. Looks like a good workout and there were a few juicy specimens on offer. Probably the biggest waves I saw.

Over the hill at Dee Why things seem to be about the same as when I reported earlier, ie, inconsistent and smaller at the point, then shoulder to head high up the beach from just north of the clubhouse to the Lugga entrance. Crowds were crowdy too.

If you can’t find yourself a wave somewhere, you aren’t trying very hard!

Little peak didn't go unanswered this morning.
