inconsistent but waves

Posted on June 4th, 2017 in Curl Curl.

A lot of sitting around waiting for small and often fairly gutless chest
high ( on takeoff) waves. Ocean slightly textured.


Sunday morning 28 May at Curly: a gallery

Yesterday morning when I checked Curly I spotted a small group of people catching cute little shories right on the sand, so I grabbed a few pics to share. Here’s a sample…

Curly update

Posted on October 12th, 2016 in Curl Curl.

Stopped by Curly this morning around 0845. Lotsa people in the water with beautiful looking conditions. However, the longer I watched, the more I realised that the actual rideable ones were pretty few and far between, even though the sets were coming through regularly. So, surfable definitely, but you’ll want to be patient!

Slotted at Curly – but these were rare

Went by Manly and Curly this morning a little before 0900. Perfect offshore conditions but the little wind swell is so close together that it’s just about unrideable. Stopped at Curly to grab the pics below and had to wait quite awhile to see one of the four people in the water at the south end “catch” something. Good day for your non-surfing obligations and interests.

Video Minute: Curl Curl Monday morning

Posted on May 30th, 2016 in A video minute, Curl Curl.

After getting out of the water late this morning at Curly, I grabbed the camera and shot a few pictures (currently being uploaded to a gallery) and made a quick video to give you a feel for the conditions as the swell very slowly winds down. Definitely a few head high wave faces still in the mix though.

Coffee drinkers at south Narra could watch one of the few surfable peaks in Sydney this morning. Not much quality really, but fun moments were possible with a bodyboard.

Conditions very much affected by the high tide and rapidly fading swell this morning at Manly and Curly. But in both cases there were clean little waves in the knee plus range if you were patient and on the right peak…

Fat Curly

Stopped by north Curly for a look about 0900. Tide was smashing it and while there was about a metre of swell, the peaks were so fat even the lone SUP rider was having trouble getting into ’em. Still, the surface conditions were smooth and the water is bath-warm, so at least it was nice in.

Tiny peak at south Curly

Posted on February 22nd, 2016 in Curl Curl.

Long waits and most of the beach was flat, but every now and then there was a very brief peak at south Curly at 0915.

It only lasted a few more seconds, but the rest of the beach was flat

Just an experiment…
