Tiny and sideshore under showery skies

Posted by: on April 30th, 2020

Hello Friends,

Spitty little showers passing through with more on the way apparently. Not much on the surf front at Dee Why.

As of 0730, the swell at sea was 1.7 m at 8 seconds from the NE. Wind was NNE at 6-8 kts.. First tide of the day was the low at 0750. High is at 1355. Ocean temp was still 22C. Skies were mostly overcast with the occasional sprinkle. Showers are expected throughout the day. It should get to 23C.

Did the Manly run…

Reasonably consistent at Curly

Scrappy and tiny from Dee Why to Long Reef


Waited a long time for this little bump

By Order of the Federal Government, our beaches are open for exercise only – surfing, swimming, running and walking. Beaches will be closed due to unsafe conditions and or mass gatherings. All pools are closed at this time.

Please see some commonly asked questions about the beach closures.

If people are sunbaking or gathering on the beach, they will be asked to move along by our lifeguards, rangers or the police.

Due to the risk of Coronavirus and acting on direction of NSW and Federal Governments, Council has closed many public areas. View the latest updates on the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19).

In addition, it is against the law to gather with more than two people in public, except:

  • for members of the same household
  • where the gathering is essential for work or education
  • If you go out, stay 1.5 metres away from other people at all times.

The rules are also now enforceable and Police are issuing fines of $1000 for individuals and $5000 for companies. These are difficult circumstances and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

A strong cold front is approaching New South Wales from the west. Most of the coastal waters are seeing fresh to strong northerly winds ahead of the front. The front is expected to bring a gusty change to the southern coast early today, continuing through central and northern parts this afternoon and evening.
