The swell was getting less consistent by Monday night, but there were still some solid sets, the wind was lightly offshore and the crew wasn’t going to let Dee Why go gently into the good night. Click the pic to see the entire gallery.
One more day left for the magic swell and lots of folk got on it, even though it was a Monday morning. I set up near the surf club and shot for over an hour. So, if you caught any waves, I probably caught you!
More fun for the large crew that pretty much lived at Dee Why for this swell. Late afternoon light was lovely and as before, I set up not far from the surf club to get the sweetest angle. I was there from about 415pm to 445pm, so if you were too, you better check to see if I captured your amazing stylings!
I got a hot tip from a mate that Mona Vale was going off on Sunday morning. But I couldn’t get there until the afternoon. No harm, no foul because I still managed to get a fair number of pics. It was only a small crew, so I reckon pretty much all of you in the water between about 140pm and 225pm will find a picture of yourselves in the gallery.
Saturday morning dawned sunny and offshore at Dee Why beach. The crew were on it, and before I went for a surf myself, I shot for an hour from about 0840. I would’ve taken even more than the couple hundred shots I took, but I just had to get in for my share of the amazing conditions. Just click the pic to check out the gallery.
The light wasn’t the best, the surface conditions were pretty beat up, but there were some very crunchy low tide sections to be had at North Narrabeen late Wednesday afternoon. There were a heap of Pro Junior competitors out too, so despite the less than optimal conditions, I shot over a hundred pics.

After weeks we finally get a little SE pulse with nice picture taking weather. I decided to check the situation at Manly and discovered there were some fun looking glassy peaks sliding in on the peaking tide. Heaps of folks were on it – which I love when I’m shooting – and while there was something of a wait between the sets, I still managed to fang off several hundred shots of regular folks catching nice waves.
As usual all these shots are for sale to raise funds for a new, even groovier lens and other photo gear I couldn’t otherwise afford. So, if you see a mate’s picture, let ’em know! And just to kick things on in that regard, tell them to enter the code HAPPYSURF (just like that) when they get to the check out stage, and it’ll take 33% off the order price (this promo code expires 31/1/2011). Oh yeah, and to get a particular pic, just click on it and then look top left for where it says “Buying Options”.
After lunch I wandered over to North Narrabeen to see what was what. There were small waves from about the Pines all the way to the Alley. A bunch of bodyboarders were looking to get smashed near carparks, while up at Northy things were slightly less hectic for the small crowd. As with Curly, the waves weren’t much to write home about, but the lack of wind meant people could enjoy some soft, glassy little peaks that very occasionally produced a mildly interesting section.
I grabbed a few piccies, so check ’em out below…
