Hello late evening visitors…

Struggling with a steampowered internet connection atm, so anyway, herewith a few snaps from this afternoon mainly at North Narrabeen but also down near Gardens. Northy was as good as I think I’ve ever seen it. Very heavy, very makeable and unbelievably consistent. I mostly shot video (lots to edit now), but at the end I spent 10 minutes or so getting some stills as well.  It was still chugging along at 3m at 12 seconds by the time the sun went down, so it could be another unpleasant night along Collaroy-Narrabeen beach front. See you again tomorrow!

Light rain falling when I pulled up at Northy for a look. Very clean conditions and you could paddle into the medium size ones – unlike at Gardens. Might stick around a bit to see if I can get any more pics and maybe some vid

Had a few spare minutes and so I stopped by Northy and grabbed about 80 snaps of people making the most of the weak, small and messy conditions. Even so, it was way better than I’d expected to see given how direly tiny it was at Dee Why this morning. Clicking on a pic will take you to the original in the my gallery…

Woohoo!

Hello Friends,

The puniness continues this morning. Swell is showing out of the east at about a metre at sea, but with a choppy 7 second period. If you were up early to beat the wind, you could find the odd knee to waist high bump at most of Sydney’s beaches (well, not the south facing ones maybe). Quick little take offs and momentary sections were the rule at the places I checked. But there were peaks from North Narrabeen to Gardens on the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch and that little bump maker just north of the SLSC at Dee Why was producing the odd spot of amusement for the Saturday morning surf crew. Looked like an excellent way to prepare for the morning coffee.

Outlook for the rest of the day is for no significant improvement to conditions. Indeed, the wind is expected to move around to the east and se later this afternoon, so that will really mess up what litttle there is.

Nothing in this morning’s forecasts to alter the Goat’s call that I can see…

Have yourself a great Saturday!

Tides: H @0605, L @1245

Mostly marginal but not flat

Hello Friends,

Just a tiny trickle of knee to waist high bumps for the early risers this morning. Tide was low at 0625 and will hit high around 1300, so the plan is to get in asap I’d say.

Outlook across the next week is for more of this kind of thing basically. I reckon today could be the pick for surfin’ this weekend, but we might possibly still have a little bump tomorrow morning too. Then it looks to flatten out for a couple days before some marginal possibilities emerge later in the week.

Have a top old Saturday!

Sunny skies and very tiny waves

Hello Friends,

Not much of anything on offer ahead of what is expected to be a windy day. Swell is out of the SSE at maybe half a metre and 7 seconds apart. There is some 11 second stuff in there and while nothing was evident along the Dee Why to Longy stretch, there was a tiny little (well-attended) peak at Northy. Set waves up there looked to be in the waist high range.

According to the Bureau, we’re set for stiff norherlies today. These are expected to last for at least the next three days.

The models show surf prospects as being minimal for Sydney through to Saturday morning, but then the prediction is that we’ll get a strong south pulse that could reverberate for a couple days or so. Right now it looks as though Sunday morning could be interesting…

Have a great Wednesday!

Waves about this morning

Posted on July 25th, 2012 in Dee Why, North Narrabeen, South Narrabeen.

 

 

 

 

Hello Friends,

Still a couple metres of more easterly swell around this morning. Sets at exposed spots are shoulder high plus. At Dee Why that meant bigger and more consistent in the beachy than at the point. Around at Collaroy-Narra stretch, the southern extent had its share of picturesque looking shutdowns while at Northy a good size crew were grabbing anything that came through the joint.

Wind is light NW.

oops, running late, gotta go

Weather Situation
A low pressure system over the eastern Tasman Sea is moving away from Australia, while a high lies across southeast New South Wales. By Wednesday the high will have moved to the Tasman Sea as a trough enters western New South Wales. Northerly winds will develop ahead of this trough, which will bring a south to southwesterly change to the coast during Thursday and Friday.
Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
Winds
Variable about 10 knots becoming northerly 15 to 20 knots in the afternoon, possibly reaching 25 knots offshore late evening.
Seas
Below 1 metre increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres by early evening.
Swell
Southeasterly about 2 metres.
Thursday 26 July
Winds
North to northwesterly 15 to 20 knots tending northwesterly 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon, then becoming westerly in the evening.
Seas
1 to 1.5 metres.
Swell
Southeasterly about 1.5 metres.
Weather
The chance of thunderstorms.
Friday 27 July
Winds
Westerly 10 to 15 knots turning southwesterly during the day.
Seas
Below 1 metre increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the evening.
Swell
Easterly about 1 metre.


Still tiny but a hint of improvement… maybe…

Posted on July 17th, 2012 in Big Picture, Dee Why, North Narrabeen.

Hello Friends,

Swell has perked ever so slightly this morning. But it’s out of the south at only about a metre, so you’ll do well to pick up something in the waist high range at exposed spots. Looked to be a long wait for really fairly feeble waves. There were only three people in the water at Dee Why and maybe three times that number at Northy. I think it’s safe to say that you probably can’t take anything too floaty this morning. Those waves need all the help they can get.

The models aren’t showing too much for the rest of the day, but they continue to hold out hope of a small but long period pulse of east swell for tomorrow. Then it looks like going back to small for the rest of the work week ahead of a new southerly pulse at the weekend. Right now said pulse is shaping to be big, but wind whipped thanks to a persistent southerly.

Go forth and enjoy your Tuesday!

TIDED: H @0700, L @1235

Weather Situation
A high pressure system, currently centred near New South Wales coast, will move east over the western Tasman Sea towards New Zealand during Tuesday. A cold front will move east across Victoria and the southern parts of New South Wales during Wednesday. The front will be followed by another high pressure system moving over the Bight on Wednesday. A trough of low pressure will develop off the northern New South Wales coast during Thursday and deepen into a low by late Friday.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight

Northerly 15 to 20 knots turning northwesterly 10 to 15 knots in the late evening.

1 to 1.5 metres.

PICS: Friday late morning, North Narrabeen

Posted on July 1st, 2012 in Click! Pics for folk, Don's surfin' pics, North Narrabeen, Top stories.

Friday the 29th of June saw a couple metres of 9-10 sec period east swell rolling into Sydney’s beaches. I took an hour out to shoot the action at North Narrabeen from about 1110 to 1210. At that stage there were a few tasty rights coming in at Carparks as well as the standard high quality lefts doing their thing.
