Snappin’ again: Bower & Manly

Posted by: on September 16th, 2009

Hello Friends,

Went for a splash under the lowering grey skies this morning. Headed to the Bower just because it’s one of those waves I never tire of and I figured there’d be enough east in the swell for it to be showing something. I was right – as were a fair number of other folks. Tide was low during the session, so I now have a sore knee after Huey tried to shift a barnacle encrusted boulder with my hapless limb. Still, like everyone else out there, I chalked up a few fun ones.

After I got out of the water, I came back along Manly beach front. Tide was still pretty low, but the onshores hadn’t had a chance to work it over too badly, so I stopped and grabbed a few snaps to share. Almost no colour in the day, but never mind, they should give you a rough idea…

Came back via Dee Why and Curly. The latter was forgetable, but the old Dee Why seemed to still be in the shoulder high range on sets. Sadly the onshores were becoming noticeable.

My hunch is that this little pulse is on the fade, so finding something not too trashed by the SE wind might be the plan today, and getting in for the early tomorrow also looks the best idea.
