Smoky Sunday surf

Posted by: on May 22nd, 2016

Hello Friends,

Checked beaches from Manly to Dee Why this smokey morning and as of 0730-0800 the 10-sec 1.6 metre SSE swell was producing consistent chest to head plus wave faces at optimally aligned stretches. Biggest was Curly, but Longy was in the same league (see pics). Manly and Dee Why beach and the point were less consistent and 30% smaller, but it sure ain’t flat. Crowds were on the low side for Manly on a Sunday, but Curly was reasonably busy and Long Reef was nutty.

Winds were light early but are expected to settle to the north and get up into the 10-15 kt range. Swell’s predicted to drop today but it’s also supposed to go more SE, so I’d expect waves all day.

Tide was high at 0830 and will be low at 1415.

Outlook is for the swell to continue fading overnight and the models are generally predicting a quieter Monday and Tuesday, but they continue to point to a reasonably substantial pulse for Wednesday-Thursday.

Have yourself a great Sunday everyone!

Saturday tiny style

Posted by: on May 7th, 2016

Hello Friends

At 0500 the MHL buoy was showing a metre of E swell with a period of 11 seconds. So we have about the same energy levels as yesterday at the same time, but the swell’s not coming from the SE. Wind at report time was light and west; it’s set to go north to NE by this afternoon. The morning tide is a high at 0830.

A run around the check out spots revealed healthy crowds in the water at Northy and from Longy to No Mans. Set waves were into the shoulder plus range, although overall I’d call it waist to chest. If you’re keen and patient with your fellow surfers, you should definitely be able to snag a few this morning.

Outlook is very much in line with the Goat’s prediction – according to the models. Wind is set to be northerly through Monday at this stage, while swell should be about the same tomorrow and then up a bit more on Monday. Swell looks like being southerly across the coming week and bit bigger. Magnets could be into the head range on bombs by late in the week. And if the models have it right, we should also be seeing offshores.

Winds along coastal waters will shift more northerly and gradually strengthen during Saturday and Sunday as a trough and associated cold front approach from the west. This system is expected to bring a gusty westerly wind change as it crosses the coast during Monday, reinforced by the passage of a second cold front on Tuesday.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight

North to northeast about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the early afternoon.

Below 1 metre, increasing to around 1 metre by early evening.

A few piccies for you

Posted by: on March 30th, 2016

1000 UPDATE:
Perfect conditions wind wise and the 80% chance of rain doesn’t look like applying this morning.
North Steyne to Queenscliff was knee to chest and not super consistent, but unlike Curly and Dee Why, it actually had a few banks. Dee Why beach was a riot of pretty shutdowns and the point was imposing very long waits on the patient crew bobbing around there. Not really surfable on most of the Collaroy Narrabeen stretch, but, as usual, there was a small crowd chasing waist to chest plusses at Northy.

Hello Friends,

Glassy start to Thursday morning and as forseen by the models, we have some solid sets in the mix. Waves were into the chest plus range on sets at Manly, head high but kinda fat at Curly and wasit to shoulder with odd pluses at Dee Why.
Swell was close to the 2 metre mark and coming mainly from the SSE at about 9 seconds apart.
The Bureau tells us to expect the SE component to fade this afternoon. Wind should be E-SE 10-15kts later. Tide will hit low at 1110 and back to high at 1715.
Getting a video clip from Dee Why together right now, so expect that up shortly…
Have a great Thursday one and all!

Hello Friends,

Gotta be keen this morning. Waves were really tiny at Northy, Longy and Dee Why, but there were folks amongst ’em as the sun came over the horizon. Set wave faces were struggling to make the waist high mark, so you really wanted your floatiest wave tool. Although the MHL buoy was reporting 11-second period, the east swell was less than a metre out at sea.
Tide was high at 0600 and will be back to low at 1240. We’re in for another 30 degree day and while the wind was lightly NW at 0720, it will swing north and then NE as it builds to a summery 10-15 kts later this afternoon.
Swell isn’t expected to change much across the day.
Nor, is it likely to improve much across the coming week according to the models. So enjoy what we have, the autumnal quality can’t be far off now…
Here’s a little video minute thingee…

Hello Friends,

Light SSW wind for the early, so surface conditions were comparatively smooth. But the wind’ll swing southerly soon and that, combined with a 0735 high tide, means the 1.5 metres or so of 8 sec SSE wind swell won’t be producing much of interest.
If you were out early, before the wind kicked in, there were some waist plus options about, but for the most part it was more like knee to waist and rather weak.
Surf outlook isn’t too red hot for the next couple of days but the models are pretty much all showing the energy levels coming back up into the solid range from Tuesday onward. Some of the long range predictions are currently projecting swell through next weekend. So, yowza!
Have yourself a top old weekend and rack up those brownie points with family and friends because you just may need them after Tuesday…
