Shooting at Curly

Will take a few snaps at curly to share later. Sets in head to head plus range.

Swell hitting south Curly more than Manly or Dee Why

Bigger lumps at Curly

Half a dozen chasing shories in the middle of the beach at Curly. Wind not going strong but it was very lumpy and messy looking. The plan was to risk life and limb on the inside where the slop briefly transformed into chest plus crunchers as it unloaded on the banks. Definitely more energy and size than yesterday. The MHL buoy was showing 2.7 m at 9 sec from the SSE as of 0700.

Looked like this for 0.5 s and then it was over – mid Curly

Only a few meters from dry sand at 0940

One person in the water at Curly as of 0900ish. Not really catchable.

One person in the water… and he gave up shortly after this was taken…

Curly ruffled and tiny

Half a dozen in the water at the south end of Curly and 3 or 4 up at the north end. Sets are struggling to make the waist mark on sets. And those are very infrequent.

Soft and infrequently catchable at south curly around 0900

Moment of energy at north Curly

A quick Curly sesh

Rebuilding fitness after long layoff due to ear op, so dropped by nth Curly for a paddle. The little gutless east wind swell was focussing enough to produce the odd chest plus face and though pretty busy I managed to get 10 waves. Fun was had on a warm morning just ahead of the wind. Grabbed some snaps with my goofy binos rig…

Roughly 130 people in the water from one end to the other at Curl Curl this morning. Quite consistent too. Waves often getting out but heaps of shoulder high sets in the mix. Surface a little ruffled out to sea but inshore was smooth in a light offshore under broken high overcast skies.

Curly 0830

Pretty chest high sets at Curl Curl around 0830. Longish waits and rides very brief and slow due to tide filling in. Chilly offshore wind an issue but sure makes the takeoff look pretty

Pulled up at Curl Curl around 0830 and a cute set wave appeared. I waited
and waited for another one to show but the only thing that happened was
that one of the 5 people in the water paddled in. Make of it what you
