Manly minor on Tuesday morning

Posted on February 13th, 2018 in Manly, Surf Reports.

Very quiet surf morning with only a comparative few in the water at Manly. Average catchable wave looks to be in the knee high range and very weak. Ocean kinda choppy looking too.

Well at least the water’s warm

School’s back and that means the occasional run to Manly. It was glassy with soft little knee to waist plus waves at a couple of points along the generally tiny conditions.

At 0900 there were around 60 people in the water chasing waves between
Queensie and North Steyne. Waves were chest to head plus and fairly

Bower and Manly

Out shooting and had to make the Manly run so can report that there are people in the water at the bower, Queensie and the bombie. Not great quality at Bower as it’s sideshore and full. But sets solidly head plus. Queensie looked nuts. You could get a wave I’m sure, but I just saw bombs sweeping in and smashing hapless paddlers caught inside. Didn’t watch the bombie but saw people out there. Probably inconsistent and fat but 2x overhead on sets (guessing).

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…

Had a chance to watch the waves In the gathering gloom. A near full moon
was glimmering above faintly luminous thunder clouds on the dark horizon.

A couple of snaps for you from Manly at around 0830. Surface conditions were pretty clean, although the water looked kind of suss. Not super consistent, but as the pics show, there were some amusing possibilities if you were in the spot…

Realitively smooth, considering.

Around 0900 I checked Manly and then North Narrabeen (via Curly) As you can see from the pictures below, Manly was pretty awful. Hardly anyone in the water there, and around at Curly there were only a scattering of folks right up at the north end. Conditions were raw and messy and although there was fun size, the banks are non-existent at the moment.
At Northy there were slightly more people in the water chasing slightly better waves. But again, sectioning, lurching and weird were words that come to mind.
A day for desperates.
