Swell hasn’t yet arrive at Dee Why

Posted on July 8th, 2018 in At large, Big Picture, Dee Why, Surf Reports.

Flat at Dee Why Point

A ripple down the beach

 

According to the charts, at Dee Why, by now it’s supposed to be 2.3m at 11s with 18kn of wind. but it’s windless and there’s no sign yet of the impending swell. Small waves just folding over. Quite a bunch of people down at Long Reef, but in the 10 minutes I stood there looking up the beach, I didn’t see anyone catch anything. Not a soul in the water at Dee Why. Time will tell, I guess. I took a couple of photos, and I’l try to figure out how to load them.


The Goat’s Surf Forecast

Posted on July 6th, 2018 in Goat's Forecast.

Wednesday update: Swell is slowly easing back.. still some punch at open beaches but becoming more user friendly. Still best left to fit nad experienced. Sunny blue sky Just saw someone having a swim like it was summer..sure 10 degrees feels like 6.

Sunday update: It’s currently 1 metre and plus with plenty of people out at places open to the South. Not much wind, almost glassy conditions – if you want to add to the crowd.  The Bureau has a dangerous surf warning up today.

Saturday update… Yep… like it says below… 1 metre rideable at some places, not at others.  cold offshore W/NW wind which will pick up as the day goes on.  Water temp is a coolish 18. Have Fun!

Surf forecast issued Friday 6 July 2018: Seven day outlook for Sydney:

Wind’s been blowing hard WNW for a good part of the day, and the Bureau is expecting some more windy days ahead.  The initial effect has been to decrease the size of the ENE swell that was coming in earlier, but after a day or so it’ll start to come up from the South.

At first there’ll be a lot of SW in the swell so most of that will be headed out to sea.  How much then results in rideable surf on a day to day basis is always difficult to judge, but TG’s best guess is below…

Saturday: down from today but it should still be around 1 – 1.5 metres or so from North East

Sunday: starting to come up at places open to dead South swell… say around 1 metre or so, increasing with the wind turning SW

Monday: could be around 2 metres or so at places open to dead South but unfortunately accompanied by southerly winds

Tuesday: similar size surf but the wind might be better

Wednesday: easing back through the 1-2 metre range dead South

Thursday: around 1 metre or so South East

Friday: similar.

Have fun !

Friday

Posted on July 6th, 2018 in At large.

Beautiful morning… blue sky, sunny, mild offshore breeze and some small to medium size waves from East North East….almost Summery.  Tides still a bit low for my taste… and will see if the early crowd thins out later.

Forecast max of 25.

Thursday quickie

Posted on July 5th, 2018 in At large.

Smaller today but great morning conditions . Blue sky, no wind and glassy waves..only prob is that other people are out there ..but they might go to work soon…and there’s a bit of a wait between rides.  Top of 23 today.


Today

Posted on July 4th, 2018 in At large.

Surf’s up from the North East.  About shoulder highish.  Nice clean waves with no wind. Best in protected NE corners or middle of beaches. Should be pretty good all day. Tide is around half tide.


Postcards from LA

Posted on July 2nd, 2018 in At large.

Hello Friends,

Perfect weather in LA but only the tiniest hint of a line showing at places like El Segundo (near LAX) and Redondo Beach. A tiny bit more going on at Palos Verdes, but didn’t see anyone in the water.
Travelling tomorrow, so could be a day or two before you hear from me again…
go well!

Surf report on an El Segundo life guard tower today

El Segundo shories Knee high and sideshore.

El Segundo on a beautiful Sunday afternoon – note the lack of crowd. This is LA!

Lunada Bay slumbers

A ml would go a treat on this little line at Palos Verdes
