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.

Weather Situation
A high pressure ridge over the coast is weakening while a low pressure system is deepening in the Bight. 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
Winds
North to northeast about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the early afternoon.
Seas
Below 1 metre, increasing to around 1 metre by early evening.

Small Saturday in Sydney, swell perks in Cali

Posted by: on November 15th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Swell seems to have faded rather dramatically in Sydney. The MHL buoy was showing about a metre of east swell at 10 seconds as of 0300. Wind was light SW at daybreak as I wrote this but the Bureau says it’ll be southerly before long – and then it’ll go SE.¬† Tide’s low at 0910, so given the dropping swell and looming wind, I’d be getting to the beach for the early – and not expecting too much either. Stand out spots may be in the waist to chest range, but I reckon that’s being hopeful really.

Tomorrow is shaping to be smaller, but the wind could mean north corners may possibly have some grovel-worthy option or other.

There could be a trickle of surfable stuff on Monday as well, but right now the rest of the week is looking marginal at best according to the current modelling.

Today’s postcard from Cali was taken a few hours ago at Arroyo Burro beach in Santa Barbara (where I learned to surf). Swell has popped up as expected but weirdly, despite the glassy conditions and head high bomb sets, there was one guy in the water when I checked. My plan is to get in the water later, so with any luck I may come back with a pic or two to share tomorrow.

Have yourself a top day everyone!

Weather Situation

A slow-moving trough and associated southerly change lie on the northern New South Wales coast, while a weak high pressure ridge is developing over southern parts. A second trough, currently near Adelaide, is expected to move east tonight, with a deepening low centre developing as it reaches the south coast during Sunday. This should see winds intensifying in southern and central areas, before the low moves away to the east overnight. Following this, conditions should ease at the start of the new week as then next high pressure system drifts across from the west.

Forecast for Saturday until midnight

Winds
Southerly 15 to 20 knots turning southeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon and evening.

1 to 1.5 metres.

Sticky: How keen are ya?

Knee high bomb
Hello Friends,

You’ll need to be pretty keen this morning and you’d be best advised to take something very buoyant because the tiny east swell is struggling to deliver much above the knee high mark. And from the look of this morning’s swell forecasts, we’re unlikely to see much of an improvement until maybe Saturday morning when there is the possibility of a little uptick.

Have yourself a fine old Thursday one and all!

Tides: L @0920 H @1605

Weather Situation
A strong, slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea extends a ridge into northeastern New South Wales. Northerly winds are expected to increase significantly during Thursday ahead of a vigorous cold front approaching from the west, and are likely to remain fresh to strong as the front crosses the coast during the weekend.

Sunny Monday morning

It ran for another 50m

Hello Friends,

A break from threatening rain clouds for Sydney this Monday morning. Swell has dropped since yesterday though. It’s now around the metre mark and coming mainly from the east at about 10 seconds apart. As of 0900 the wind was still offshore along the northern beaches.

At Dee Why the conditions added up to waist to chest sets for the relatively small number of surfers in the water. ¬†According to the Bureau the light mainly SW wind should prevail until midday or thereabouts when a SE’r onshore should make itself felt.

The outlook for the remainder of the week isn’t looking too bad. Nothing amazing on the size front, but there should be surfable conditions at lots of places through the week to come. I reckon it’ll mostly be in the waist to chest plus range, but there might be a bit more than that late Tuesday, early Wednesday.

Have a great Monday!

 

Weather Situation

A high pressure system near the Bight extends a ridge across the southern Tasman Sea and a low pressure trough with a low within it lies off the northern New South Wales coast. The trough will move away from the coast during Tuesday and Wednesday as the high strengthen the ridge over the western Tasman Sea.

Small Sunday but dribble to be had

Posted by: on January 6th, 2013

Hello Friends,

A textbook summer’s Sunday morning in Sydney. A metre of east swell is flopping in and when I checked it around 0800, the NEr was just starting to pick up. Heaps of folks in the water at Curly, Dee Why and Northy. Dee Why was the worst from a surf perspective, there were more peaks at Curly, but Northy had the slightest of edges in (crowded) quality.

The wind is expected to be a light summery 15-20kt NE’r all day.

Low tide is coming up at 0950 and 1540 will see the high.

Outlook is for the energy levels to stay about the same for the next few days. So, don’t wait for an improvement, just take it for what it is and have yourself some fun!

On the fade

Posted by: on July 14th, 2009

Hello Friends,

Waiting for it to get light enough to take some pics. So in the meantime, a status update for you early risers.

Swell has faded sharply overnight, dropping from an average of 2 metres at 12 seconds yesterday to around a metre at 10 seconds now. There are still some 13 sec sets left in the mix though, so with luck there should be a wave or two to be had (at a similar size to what we had Sunday morning).

Okay, I’m off to see what I can spot. Pics up as soon as I am able…

Low tide was at 0530 and high is at 1255.

Sydney Coastal Waters, Broken Bay to Port Hacking and 60nm seawards:
Tuesday until midnight: Wind: W/NW 15/20 knots, reaching 20/25 knots offshore at times. NW 5/10 knots inshore early. Sea: 1.5 to 2 metres, reaching 2 to 2.5 metres offshore at times.Swell: E/SE 1.5 to 2 metres.
Wednesday: Wind: W/SW 10/15 knots, turning S/SW during the day.Sea: about 1 metre. Swell: E/SE about 1 metre.
Thursday: Wind: S/SW 10/20 knots, increasing to 20/30 knots.
