Hi all,

Didja get waves? Hope so! You had to be selective and this morning on the lower tide was better at most places than this afternoon on high. That said, your correspondent managed to jag several very fun head high plus sets at Long bombies late this afternoon. Not the easiest place to take pictures, so only got a small number.

I did a bit of shooting this morning at Dee Why and Curly, so expect galleries from those sessions in due course.

Swell was still pretty solid as Huey squeezed the last little bit of light out’ve the day. Sets at Longy were consistently in the overhead range and it looked as though it was that size all the way down the beach to Dee Why. However on high tide Dee Why was not that interesting – the beachy was shutting down and the point was crowded, inconsistent and fat. Oh, and the breeze was onshore for awhile as well.

Outlook fer tomorrow… well, I reckon it’s going to be smaller but with luck it won’t be ridiculously little. From the look of the buoy data off to the south of us, the period will probably get shorter (ie weaker waves) and the average height will drop a bit. If we have waist to chest high with WSW wind, I’ll be happy.

Have a great Saturday evening one and all.
