Posted by: on November 17th, 2016

Surf forecast issued Thursday 17 November 2016: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

First of all: Happy 60th Everyone!!  Huh?  See below at the end of the forecast>>>

Oh so many weather and wind changes ahead, flopping and slopping the ocean around at will, it’s enough to make you seasick just thinking about it… TG’s best advice…>>>>>>>>>>

Stay on your toes, keep your sense of balance and perspective, consider what might happen, then see what actually happens, be flexible to the changes in your world that you can’t control… and look for opportunities as they arise…

Oh look, is he talking about The World outlook, or The Surf outlook…Again! ???

Who knows….Maybe it’s both??!! …(again)….

The Surf >>>>>> Also, watch out for Blueys in abundance…

Friday: down from today’s bit of size that hit places open to SSE swell, to mostly at the lower end of the 1-2 metre range, but with possible sets at the upper end with some oomphiness …East South East…

Saturday: down, to say 1  – 1 + metre area South East

Sunday: down again to around 1 metre dead South places only…but with maybe a little more pushing in from a strong pulse

Monday: up into the 1-2 metre range dead South, with maybe sets getting into southern corners

Happy 60th Anniversary!

The first significant public demonstration in Australia of modern malibu surfing took place at Avalon Beach on Sunday 18 November 1956. Its far reaching effects revolutionised the sport of surfing and Australian beach culture.

After competing in a surf carnival organised by Avalon Beach Surf Life Saving Club, American lifeguards here to take part in the 1956 Melbourne Olympics surf carnival, went surfing on their surfboards and carved their way across the waves off South Avalon.

“They paddled their boards out in front of the rocks at South Avalon and we all laughed thinking they’d get smashed on the rocks.  Everyone was amazed when they turned their boards and rode across the face of the wave in front of the rocks.  Surfboard riding from then on was totally different.” (the late Max Watt Life Member Avalon Beach SLSC)

The era of the ‘toothpick’ hollow boards ended on that day and that of the modern malibu, the forerunner of today’s surfboards had begun.  From that day on surfing changed to become whatever it is on the day you are reading this.

 Enjoy your surfing…..enjoy your history.  PS they briefly rode their boards at Cronulla on 17 November 1956 the day before Avalon’s major surf carnival, which was a warm up for them competing at Torquay later.. Good luck to Cronulla for organising its celebrations.. but we all know the Northern Beaches is the Centre of the Surfing Universe anyway and we keep things low key… 🙂
