Noreast Stuff

Posted on December 3rd, 2014 in Manly.

Some 2ft NE windswell junk. Looked better than it was when I paddled out at a 6:30am high but as the tide drops out it might improve. Water finally has some cool bits mixed in after all these noreasters too.

Weird Night

Posted on December 2nd, 2014 in Manly.

Weird night with a gusty southerly followed by a gusty northerly. Morning brings 3ft NE windswell peaks and cleanish conditions. Might be a repeat of yesterday with the swell dropping as the NE winds pickup. Low tide 11:46am Get out early, watch out for pooey water.

First day of summer – get into it

Posted on December 1st, 2014 in Manly.

Mix of 2 swells of unexpected size greeted the first official day of summer. There’s an underlying south swell that seems to have the most size with a NE swell of almost the same that are creating some nice sized peaks and random action.  The off 4ft bomb means you can actually take a normal board today – no fish or lognboard required for once!  10:36am low. The early summer onshores are up but not a problem yet. Get into it while it’s there!

Sunday Bumps

Posted on November 30th, 2014 in Manly.

A typical pre-Xmas Sunday. Early onshores. 2ft of NE windswell (a touch of tiny SE under it too) Building Sunday beach madness. 9:22am low

Small south for Saturday

Posted on November 29th, 2014 in Manly.

Small south swell today with a couple of feet just getting into Manly if you are patient. Smooth. offshore and 8:11am low make the morning the best bet. Try and south magnet before the onshores kick in soon.

It’s ugly and onshore and small. Maybe hide in a north corner later when the wind clocks around more to the north. The underlying swell is south so maybe try North Curly later (whoops I’m not supposed to give specifics – sorry locals, I’m having an off day)

Making the most of Wednesday Does my bum look big in this?

Super glassy

Posted on November 25th, 2014 in Manly.

A warm, windless and super glassy morning is hard to resist just getting wet. Only some tiny NE lines that are rideable with your old faithful log on the right bank and with a lucky set.  Southerly change due to ruin it all.

Slim Pickings

Posted on November 24th, 2014 in Manly.

Was grey and tiny onshore looking at dawn. Sun is peeping out mide morning and the onshore is really light.  Pretty tiny stuff worthy of grommet enthusiasm or a longboard for the elderly (anyone above 16yrs)


The Sore Neck Club Grom proving its not flat

Not a lot of float for your boat

Posted on November 23rd, 2014 in Manly.

Slim pickings for Sunday but it is warm and glassy.  One foot or so sets and the pending 9:22am high isn’t helping.  There’s a weak south bump and a weak ne bump so probably a south magnet might have the most but it will be bank and luck dependent. Water is warmish so it’s hard not to get tempted to have a float. You will get lots of float, a little less for your boat

Saturday is surfable

Posted on November 22nd, 2014 in Manly.

Light south wind is making things a bit bumpy but there are a few 2ft sets getting in. So Saturday is surfable which is all that matters to many. 3:13pm low. Wind forecast to go east
