Are you really keen?

Hello Friends, Out for a walk and coming back through Dee Why at low tide, got a picture of the impressive quantity of seaweed on the beach in the south corner. No surf btw. 2020 ends with a whimper. 10 kts of SSE wind keeping the tiny 7-second 1 metre SSE wind bump junky and […]

Another junky, tiny and grey day at the beach

Hello Friends, Not my idea of surfable this morning at Dee Why, but several hardy types disagreed. As the pictures show, the 15-20kt ESE wind is smashing the surface conditions. This morning’s showers are set to ease off as the day goes along, but the Bureau tells us the showery weather will continue for the […]

Smooth early

Hello Friends,   Raining to start this morning with light winds and smooth seas. The waverider buoy was detecting 1.4 metres of 7 second SE wind bump which was translating into knee to knee and a bit at the magnets. Tide was high at 0835 and will bottom out again at 1515. It’s going to […]

Change but no swell

Out for a walk and surf check. Blasting onshore wind and no sign of swell. Lots of folk out walking though!

Minor on Monday

Hello Friends, A warm beginning to the day with light SW wind under stormy looking skies. There were people in the water at Dee Why where waves looked to be in the ankle to knee high range. The offshore buoys were showing 1.4 metres of 7 second east wind bump. The Bureau tells us  a […]

Last sunny Sunday in 2020

Hello Friends, Nice to have a sunny start to the final Sunday of 2020. There are tiny waves at Dee Why, but it’s looking inconsistent, busy and not offering much above the knee high mark. As of 0900 there was a light WNW breeze to go with the 1.2 metre 6-sec east wind bump. High […]

Glassy, mostly weak and tiny early

Hello Friends, As the day got started under lowering dark grey skies, the wind was light and the tiny ENE bumps were glassy smooth but offering little energy. Couldn’t see anyone in the water along the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch where waves looked to be maybe knee to waist on the biggest ones. It was pretty much […]

Nice day to be missing it

Hello Friends, Enjoying Christmas morning, but wondering about the beach? Don’t. You’re missing only turgid waist high onshore junk. Along with heavy overcast, there’s also 12-17 kts of SSE wind. So make the most of the social opportunities while being COVID-19 safe. Weather Situation A high pressure system south of the continent is pushing a […]

Surf for the morning sesh

Hello Friends, Light NNE breeze just before 0900 and there’s close to 2 metres of 9 second period dead south swell delivering chest plus sets for a Christmas week crowd in the 21C water. Tide is low at 1115 and by the time it’s back to high the Bureau tells us to expect NE wind […]
