Taken (bugger)

Posted on December 7th, 2014 in Manly.

Conditions are so good for Manly.  There a beautiful 3ft NE groundswell filtering in and conditions are perfect and clean. Unfortunately for Queenscliff surfers at my end the clubbies are setting up to take over a big part of the beach for a comp so get it while you can. The crowds will be squeezed into the south half.  High tide is 9:30am but at 6:30 it already seemed quite full.  Its a god direct for most beaches so have a look around maybe. Wind forecast says light and variable before setlling into an onshore breeze. Hopefully clean al day like yesterday. Get out there.

Small and ruffled

Posted on December 6th, 2014 in Manly.

Small NE lines ruffled at north ends by a southerly breeze. Clean at the south end. Pending 8:47am high is really not helping. Mixed bag of not-so-great wnds on the cards today. Tomorrow is looking better. Get online and watch some sunset.

Rinse and Repeat

Posted on December 5th, 2014 in Manly.

Theme of the week is NE windswells. Some nice clean little lines this morning about to be eaten by the high tide. Early surfers had a few bumps.   Today shows some kind of south change later, maybe some more storms to keep things interesting.

After the Storm

Posted on December 4th, 2014 in Manly.

It always feels so fresh after a good downpour. Apparently it washes the dust out of the atmosphere. Also washes most of the crap off the streets into the surf so watch where you swim. Tiny NE bumps breaking close to the shore on the 7:15am high tide. So smooth I think people are desperate to float. Which you will do a lot of. Maybe as the tide drops but the usual onshores are due.

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

Enjoy – Surfboards Direct

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)
