Lots of sets this morning at the point

Hello Friends,

Light west wind early under sunny skies with a 10-sec 3.6m lumpy SSE swell piling into Dee Why. As the pictures show, there were a few stalwarts out at the point looking for the makeable ones and duck diving the rest. The beach was at least as big, but I doubt it’s be worth the effort to battle through the endless lines of white water just to get out to where the lines are shutting down.
Tide’s low a little after 1000 this morning. Wind should stay SW until early afternoon when the Bureau tells us it’ll come back around to the south as the swell peaks across the afternoon.
Tomorrow should see the swell beginning to fade noticeably, but the wind’s set to be lighter so it could be pretty good.
I’ll try to grab a few more pictures for you today, so check back!
In the meantime, go well and stay happy.

Weather Situation

hello Friends,

Scrappy and small at the Dee Why end of the beach, but there should be waist to chest energy at stretches of beach more receptive to the 2 metres of 8 second NE wind swell. Speaking of wind, it was 10-15 kts from the NW at 0730 but it should switch west later. So a good looking combo for waves all day I reckon. But you will have to hunt around for the optimal alignment.
Tide is low at 0800 and high again at 1440

Outlook for tomorrow’s not hopeless but the trends are pointing toward pretty small and thereafter it looks like we’ll need to wait until midweek for anything into the surfable range…

Have a great Saturday!

Weather Situation

A high pressure system centred over the Tasman Sea is moving slowly east while the cold front approaches from the west. Strengthening northerly winds today will shift west to southwesterly later on Saturday as the cold front moves through. Conditions are expected to ease from Sunday as the next high pressure system extends a ridge from the west. The next cold front is due to cross New South Wales on Monday and Tuesday.

Forecast for Saturday until midnight

Hello Friends,

Happy Fathers Day fellow Dad’s. Looks like you could get a little waistto chest plus slider at the right peak this morning. Swell’s coming from the SE at around 9 seconds apart and the MHL buoy was hitting the 1.6 metre mark at 0600. Wind was light west as the sunny day got started Should stay that way too. Tide’s high at 1000 and back to low at 1600.
The models all point to the swell energy slowly fading across the day and most show the decline continuing toward flatness midweek.With luck there’ll be a few little things tomorrow. After that it looks like our next slight up tick could come along for next weekend.
Have a great Sunday!

Cleaner, smaller but not flat Saturday

Posted by: on August 6th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Overcast skies but light west wind for the early risers this morning. Swell’s dropped but as of 0500 the MHL buoy was showing 2.3 metres of 9-sec SE energy. Tide hit low at 0430 and is coming into the high at 1040. Some showers offshore and the Bureau says a 70% chance of precipitation along the coast during the day. Wind is supposed to come around to the south and be 10-15 kts.

Waves were clean at 0700 but the beachbreaks were kinda lined up so you had to get lucky if you were anywhere from Kiddies to Longy at Dee Why. The point was about chest to shoulder on sets and fairly busy for such a cold morning. Collaroy was busy but clean and waist high. It was bigger up the beach toward Gardens but the shutdown ration was getting pretty high and there were no takers as of 0700.

Tomorrow the outlook is for the swell to be a touch smaller again, but the wind should be light SW in the morning and light and variable in the afternoon. Bureau sees the swell in the 1.5-2.5 range for Sunday with an 80% chance of showers.

This morning’s swell modelling is pointing toward a steady decline in energy levels to near flatness from Wednesday through next weekend and into the following week. But thereafter the long range projections currently show a potential solid surf event. Maybe. Possibly. Well, don’t bank on it just yet!

Have yourself a top old Saturday one and all!

Waves to be had

Posted by: on June 20th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Only one person in the water at the point as of 0730 and yet, as the pictures show, there were definitely chest plus waves to be had. Couldn’t see much up the beach, but there should be the odd option around the Pole. Water’s pretty likely to be woofy though. Wind was light and NNW but there is a gale warning for 25-30 kts of N-NW going W-NW later in the day.
Swell was 2.4 metres combo of north and SSE swells. Period was around the 8-9 second mark as of 0600. Not the best setting on the period, so I’d expect to find close together, relatively weak and wind-swelly conditions at places that like east.
Tide is high at 0810 and back to low at 1345.
Outlook for the remainder of the week hasn’t changed too much since yesterday. Today’s the peak, in fact this morning is, and from here on in it’s expected to get smaller and smaller. By Thursday it could be flat. Friday looks the same, but the prospect of solid south pulse on Saturday is still showing on the predictions. Sunday could be the peak day with potential for double overhead conditions – if the super computers have it right. The big stuff could last through Tuesday.
Have yourself a great Monday one and all!

Waves and crowds for Anzac Day morning

Posted by: on April 25th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Sunny skies and light offshores matched to about 1.5 metres of 9-second east swell and combined with an incoming tide (high’s at 1010) were delivering shoulder to head plus wave faces on sets at the point. As you can see from the pics, it was well populated by 0720. Size along the beach is looking more or less the same, but from what I could see, the dire bank situation is unchanged – hence all the bods at the point.
Wind is expected to come around to the E-SE but not get much above 10 kts. Surface conditions were textured early and as the wind comes around, it’ll likely get a bit choppier too.
Swell should stick around all day and then fade a little tomorrow but at this stage it looks like morning waves of some sort or other all next week. The general trend looks downward however, so we could be looking at knee to waist by Friday.
Go well with your Anzac Day one and all.

Good, Friday waves

Posted by: on March 25th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Swell’s continued its very gradual decline overnight, but Dee Why point and the beach are still seeing head high wave faces on the sets. The latest MHL data for Sydney shows the swell coming from E by ESE at about 1.5 metres with an average period of close to 11 seconds. As the pictures show, there was a healthy crew in the water at the point and a few bods scattered up the beach from the club. (The banks are still mostly straight handers).
As of 0800 wind was coming from the north. It’ll drift around to the northwest later. Next tide’s a high at 1020 and we’ll be back to low at 1625.
According to the Goat, today’s looking the best shot for the coming week, but he’s not unhopeful either…
Have yourself a good one and stay happy!

Weather Situation
A weakening high pressure system lies over eastern New South Wales, directing east to northeasterly winds over most coastal waters. A trough and southerly change will move along the southern and central coasts late Friday before stalling in the north during Saturday. A new high moving in behind this trough should see a return to generally light onshore winds on Sunday and Monday, although there is some uncertainty in the position of a trough expected to linger off the coast early in the week.
Forecast for Friday until midnight
Winds
North to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning northwesterly in the evening. Winds reaching up to 20 knots offshore in the late evening. Winds inshore tending southerly in the late evening.

Saturday morning little fun ones at the right spots

Posted by: on February 13th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Less than a metre of swell coming from the east this morning with an average period of close to 8 seconds. Only a few spots were lighting up at all – Northy (join the crowds) and No Mans at Dee Why (ditto). Set wave faces were into the waist plus range and it looked pretty fun if you had something with some volume under your feet.
Wind was light and out of the NW early. Tide was low at 0640 and is running back into the high at 1250. Wind will pick up steadily and be a summer-standard 15-20 kts from the NE by this afternoon.
So the plan is to hit it ASAP.
Outlook for the rest of the week remains interesting. Tomorrow looks like being a little smaller as a result of decreasing period. Monday could see an uptick as both size and average period click up a little bit. Problem is that it also looks like we’ll be into a southerly regime from there on through to Thursday when it looks like we might possibly get light winds plus some solid 12-13sec south swell…
Have yourself a top old Saturday!

Gloomy skies again but some solid sets in the mix

Posted by: on January 28th, 2016

Hello Friends,

The Bureau tells us it expects the swell to pulse up a little in the middle of the day. Given that there were overhead sets every now and again around 0700, it could get interesting. The day started out with more gloomy skies but very little wind. At 0400 the MHL buoy was picking up a mix of south and NE swell energy. The strongest stuff was coming from the south but there is some low, long period swell from the NE. At Dee Why these settings were producing waist to occasionally overhead waves at the point and along the beach. Only a few folks in the water at the former and no one I could see at the latter. Schools are going back this week, so maybe that’s a factor.
Tide is running into the high just before noon and the light winds meant conditions were smooth but some what lumpy from yesterday’s wind.
Speaking of the wind, the Bureau tells us to expect the NE’r to picky up soon and to be 15-20 kts when it gets going.
I’ll be interested to see what the Goat thinks about the coming week’s prospects. My reading of the models this morning is that we’re probably looking at the best of it today and that it’ll be more marginal as the weekend arrives. And I wonder if he’ll have anything to say about late next week…
Have yourself a top old Thursday everyone!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system to the southeast of Tasmania is moving slowly east maintaining a ridge to the north, directing southeast to northeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast. Winds will turn north to northeasterly during today and as the ridge weakens and a low pressure trough approaches from the west. This trough is expected to evolve into a complex low pressure system as it reaches the coast at the end of the week, with several centres likely to develop. There is considerable uncertainty regarding the position of these centres, which will have a significant influence on wind speed and direction.
Forecast for Thursday until midnight
Winds
Northeasterly 15 to 20 knots, reaching up to 25 knots offshore in the late evening.
Seas
1 to 1.5 metres, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres offshore.
Swell
