Still some swell to play with, but the SE wind was working it over at Dee Why by around 1000 when I shot this video minute

Video minute: Dee Why beach, Monday afternoon

Within the hour the rain would be coming down. Monday afternoon with a steady southerly onshore under leaden skies. And yet, the keen were getting amongst it at Dee Why beach.

PICS from Sunday morning at Dee Why from the point to No Man’s

Went shooting on Sunday morning at Dee Why beach. It was just too busy for me to contemplate. Conditions were pretty good, but the shutdown factor was a problem and despite the reasonable 2 metre, 12-sec SE swell, a lot of the waves seemed kinda fat. But not all of them. I saw three broken boards in the 90 minutes or so I was at the beach, so definitely some snap to some of ’em. Anyway, here are a few piccies from the gallery that should be accessible by Monday morning. As always, I was looking for regular surfers having fun, rather than hot shots trying to make surf mag covers. Over 300 from the shooting session that went from around 0930 to 1100. I was shooting folks from about the pole to the point.
Go see all the pictures!

When the skies unexpectedly cleared, I decided to jump in the beautiful warm water for a quick sesh at the Pole. Nothing to write home about really, but the water is beautiful and it didn’t seem to be much affected by run-off. Waves were in the waist to chest range and seemed to have an average period on sets of around 9 seconds.

After I got out, I grabbed the camera and took a few snaps to share…

Hello Friends,

Close to 3 metres of 11 second SE swell rolling in with light offshores and sunny skies as Saturday got started. Wind is set to be light until this evening when it will get up to 10-15kts from the SE. Next tide is a big high at 1120, followed by a low at 1810.

There are some serious looking sets in the mix at exposed spots, so this is definitely not a day for beginners at most places. If you want a quiet sesh, maybe check out the protected south corners because anything with good exposure to this swell will be showing sets into the overhead range. Swell looks nice and juicy too thanks to the healthy 11 second period. Pay attention and be prepared to share because it was already very busy at Dee Why before 0700.

Swell is set to peak today and then drop away pretty steadily over the next 36-48 hours. With luck we’ll get waves pretty much all day and then again tomorrow before the wind gets into it and maybe even a few scraps Monday morning.

Go well and have a top old day!

ps: will be out and about with a camera today so hope to have some snaps for you later!

Wave of the morning?

Ride the Wild Surf

Where the swell's hitting

Out and about this morning and checked everywhere from Manly to North Narra. Bower was flat, Manly was scrappy but sort of do-able considering, Freshy was a case of NUP!, Curly – do you have to even ask?, Dee Why point swell not connecting, up the beach too much work for too little pay off, Collaroy, fat, slow and small per usual, far north Collaroy/way south Narra, cleanest of the bunch, very inconsistent though, Northy – yeah, right.

I’ve got a black page of doom to build, so see you on the other side!

Hello Friends,

PC just winding up for a 360 at the point in 1977

Yesterday I finished cutting together a highlights reel from my 1977 surf footage for next Thursday night’s Solstice Jam Surfrider fundraiser at Deck Bar. Peter Crawford appears at Dee Why point, Northy and Burleigh. Mumbles, Mark Warren, Terry Fitz, Shaun Tomson, Rabbit and, of course, MP also feature. Today I’ll be pulling together some more recent footage of very solid south Narrabeen to add further visual spice to the night. Along with live music, Surfrider crew will be raffling off boards, wetties, surf lessons and even 2-hour photo sessions from wozthatyou’s Doug and, ahem, me. For $20 you’re in the door with a voucher for a couple drinks and finger food. One of those nights when people will be saying ‘you shoulda been there…”

Hello Friends,

Only a trickle – but there is a trickle – of knee to waist plus SSE swell this morning on the Northern Beaches. Had the opportunity to see Curly as well as Dee Why and I think it’s safe to say that both stretches of the beach were very similar. There were lots of folk in the water chasing what looks to be pretty feeble (with some occasional exceptions) little dribblers. Every now and then Huey tosses up something slightly interesting, so in the course of a sesh you should come away with at least a moment or two of amusement value.

Tide was high at about 0920 and while it will drop back a little between then and 1450, the change is going to be pretty subtle I would’ve thought.

On current calculations, the surf outlook for our region is pretty ordinary for most of the coming week (the Goat picked it). That said, there is some energy showing in the models from around Thursday afternoon and into Saturday as a strong south pulse develops. We’ll need to cling to that hope because the next couple days are looking near flat to me…

Time for a plug…
Surfrider Foundation’s first Solstice Jam – Thr, 20 June 2013

It’s a fundraiser where the emphasis is on fun and you’re in the door with a voucher for a couple drinks and finger food for a laughable $20. You can book online right now by clicking here. Oh, and I’ll be putting together a little video clip of PC at Dee Why point in 1977. Might work in a few shots of Terry Fitz and MP as well. It comes from 16mm film I shot and is something very few people have seen… I’m also keen to source images and vid sequences from DY and the northern beaches if you know of any (all media will be credited and used only for the night).

Here’s the official bumpf

PICS: Dee Why beach Sat 12 June (1100-1200)

Posted by: on June 13th, 2010

After shooting at south Narrabeen, I went around to see if there was much doing at Dee Why. I got there a little after 11 and shot until about noon when the sea breeze really began to take a toll on the conditions. If you were in the water in front of the SLSC, have a squiz, cause I might have got some of you. As always, if you see one you want, just double click on the picture to bring up the full size version and then use the add to cart button top left. Easy-peasy.
