Sticky: Out and about in search of swell + video!

Dawn at Dee Why

Hello Friends,

My brain was spinning with ideas for the site and the crowdfunding project, so I was up before daybreak making notes and thinking. Decided to hop in the car and go down to the beach to have a look and to make a short video about the crowdfunding stuff.

Surf situation seems to be a touch better than yesterday thanks to a distinctly longer period line. Dee Why and Longy are just barely twitching. Sets are struggling to get above the knee high mark for the most part. However, over at Curly, the swell is a little bigger, particularly at the south end. Sets were waist plus and looking fun. The Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch was pretty near flat at the Collaroy end, grading to knee plus at Northy. Some very pretty little shories at south Narrabeen and Gardens, but you really couldn’t surf em.

Tide was high at 0720 or so and will be back to low at 1315.

The Bureau is showing the swell gradually increasing as the day goes along but the wind is going to pick up too and by this afternoon we look like having a summery 15-20 kts of NE wind with it. With luck tomorrow morning will see another slight uptick in the conditions at spots that like east swell.

Yours truly is going to grab the mal and head north to see just what I might find. My hope, as I said yesterday, is that I’ll be able to file the occasional story along the way…

So stay tuned, and I’m really looking forward to seeing your name among the pledgers soon!
