Micro Mum’s Day at Dee Why

Posted by: on May 8th, 2016

Hello Friends,

What a difference three seconds makes. Yesterday the swell was about a metre from the east and this morning it’s the same again. But then it was 10 seconds apart and now it’s only about 7 seconds. So what had been knee to chest at magnet spots is now more like ankle to waist. And when I grabbed the pics, it looked like smaller than that at Dee Why.
Tide’s high at 0925 and wind was light early but it’s due to come up from the north along with the rain. The Bureau also says the swell should move to the NE and come up a bit as well. So maybe, possibly there’ll be something in the corners… but it’s a long shot I reckon.
The next couple of days look like being dominated by northerly to NW wind. Again, could possibly be some east swell getting into the north corners if we’re lucky.
Mid to late next week is looking moderately promising according to various models, which is a good thing.
In the meantime, have a great Mother’s Day one and all and go well!

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 today 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.

Clear skies and tiny bumps for Friday morning

Posted by: on April 15th, 2016

Hello Friends,

At 0600 the MHL buoy off Sydney was picking up a metre of east wind swell with a typical period of 7 seconds. When I checked Dee Why an hour later there were a few hopefuls at the point trying to get something going with the ankle to knee high lumps. I couldn’t see anyone in the water along the beach. Wind was light from the north and tide was running out to the low at 0940.

From what the Goat says, we’re in for not much in the way of excitement today, but maybe there’ll be possibilities next week…

Go well with your Friday and if you’re looking for a wave, take the longest option in your quiver!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is slowly moving east, maintaining a ridge along the New South Wales coast and directing southeast to northeasterly winds across coastal waters. A cold front and low pressure trough will bring a southerly change to the south coast in the early hours of Saturday, extending to the central coast during Saturday and throughout during Sunday. A low pressure trough will deepen along the New South Wales coast early next week, with a low possibly developing off the south coast.

Posted by: on July 25th, 2015

Hello Friends,

Energy levels are around the same as this time yesterday, ie swell was out of the east at 7 seconds with an average height of a metre as of 0100. Wind was faint and offshore at daybreak but is set to pick up from the NW and to be into the 15-20 kt range later. Tide’s low at 0830 and then high again at 1510.
Outlook is for the wind to go harder tomorrow and for the ocean to be flat. Sunday through to Monday afternoon looks equally dire but, with any luck, the swell should ramp during Monday afternoon and potentially be pretty fun by close of play – with offshore wind and clear skies.
So, get out there with your super small wave implement and maybe jag a few for now, because it looks like a couple of rest days coming up before resumption of normal programming.

Hello Friends,

Dee Why’s looking pretty small this morning. Couldn’t see anyone in the water along the beach and only a couple of folks messing about at the point on rescue boards. Swell is out of the east at about a metre but with a period of only 7 seconds. That being the case, as with yesterday, there should be knee to waist high little things at spots better tuned to the delicate conditions than Dee Why.

Wind is expected to ramp up from the N-NW and the Bureau says they expect the swell to go more NE and to pick up in the afternoon. Hmmm…

I’m liking the look of the Goat’s surf forecast for next week. Unlike the models, he brings decades of experience surfing the east coast to the data.

Good luck with your Friday one and all!

Hello Friends,

Sunny start to Monday with light offshore breezes at 0700 and about a metre of 7-sec east wind swell delivering waist to chest high wave faces at Dee Why.
The Bureau says that it’ll turn onshore by the middle of the day. Tide is high at 0800 and back to low at 1350.
The anticipated east coast low looks like it might be forming up off southern Queensland. And the MHL Coffs Buoy is showing 3 metres of 10 second east energy – and light SW wind too. Could be pretty fun up that way. More to the point, it should also mean that we see our energy levels going up through the day.
From tomorrow the swell should be significantly bigger from the east. Unfortunately, as we’ve been hearing for days now, the wind will be coming strongly from the SE. By Thursday the low is projected to be a complex system sitting pretty much right on top of Sydney and potentially slinging 4-5 metre east swell at us – along with very strong S-SSW wind.
Wind looks like smashing surf options until Friday at the earliest.
Should be an interesting few days.
Have yourself a great Monday everyone and keep on smilin’!

Weather Situation

A strong high pressure system remains almost stationary over the southern Tasman Sea, while a low pressure trough lies off the New South Wales and southern Queensland coasts. A low developing within the coastal trough is expected to deepen early in the new week and may remain slow-moving for several days, with multiple centres likely to form. Although the exact evolution of this system is currently uncertain, it is forecast to generate windy conditions and large swells, particularly along the northern half of the coast.

Forecast for Monday until midnight

Winds
Easterly about 10 knots increasing to 10 to 15 knots in the middle of the day.
Seas
Below 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres offshore later in the evening.
Swell
Easterly 1.5 metres.
Weather
The chance of thunderstorms offshore until this evening.

Not much of interest to start

Posted by: on January 25th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Saturday kicked off with a weak little east wind swell of about a metre at around 7-8 seconds apart. At Dee Why it was manifesting as knee to waist plusses along the beach. The point was back asleep again after its brief wakefulness on Wednesday arvo. Wind was light from the SSW to begin with, but the Bureau has hoisted the strong wind pennants for S-SW 15-25, going SE in the afternoon. Bah. The plan is to get in now if you can. The models show swell picking up from the south, but nothing was showing at the buoys off to our south, so not sure about that one.

I’m with the Goat about tomorrow and Monday’s outlook (see down page). Looks as though we’re in for generally onshore conditions into the middle of the month – at least. The long range modelling is still projecting an interesting east in about 10 days, but obviously that is still very much in the realms of wild speculation for now.

Have yourself a good one!

Tides: L @0955 H @1545
Early sesh set

Weather Situation
A cold front is crossing the southern Tasman Sea bringing gusty southerly change along New South Wales coast and a high pressure system south of the Bight is moving east extending a ridge behind the front. Winds will ease during Sunday as the high moves over the southern Tasman Sea extending a ridge to the north coast.

Morning scene

Hello Friends,

Had to be up early for the 702 ABC surf report this am, so figured I’d make the call from the beach. Sadly, it was messy and junky and gutless dribble in the knee to waist range from Dee Why to Longy. Paddling exercise only i’d say. Still, I’m here, so might as well go for a splash.

Wind swell is out of the east at about 7 seconds apart and a metre out at sea. Wind is lightly onshore from the NE. It’ll pick up to summer strength later on this afternoon, but I’m not too hopeful that it’ll push anything much up for the early tomorrow.

And it will have to be early tomorrow because we’re due to cop a gale force southerly in the morning. Right now it looks as though the southerly will push up the swell in the usual way, but come Monday morning it’ll still be blowing and making things messy. I’m not too hopeful of a wave of any quality. Later in the week though things might improve a bit as the models are currently predicting an extended period of fun size east wind swell…

Have a great Saturday!

Weather Situation
Northerly winds along New South Wales will increase today as low pressure trough associated with a deep low south of Tasmania approaches from the west. This trough will bring a vigorous southerly change to the far south coast late Saturday extending to Sydney Waters early Sunday morning then to the far north coast Sunday evening. Southerly winds are expected to ease Monday morning as the low moves rapidly to the southeast and a high pressure system moves southeast of the Bight strengthening a ridge to the north coast.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight
Winds
Northeasterly 10 to 15 knots, increasing to 20 to 25 knots in the afternoon and evening.
Seas
Below 1 metre, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres during the afternoon.

Woohoo!

Hello Friends,

The puniness continues this morning. Swell is showing out of the east at about a metre at sea, but with a choppy 7 second period. If you were up early to beat the wind, you could find the odd knee to waist high bump at most of Sydney’s beaches (well, not the south facing ones maybe). Quick little take offs and momentary sections were the rule at the places I checked. But there were peaks from North Narrabeen to Gardens on the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch and that little bump maker just north of the SLSC at Dee Why was producing the odd spot of amusement for the Saturday morning surf crew. Looked like an excellent way to prepare for the morning coffee.

Outlook for the rest of the day is for no significant improvement to conditions. Indeed, the wind is expected to move around to the east and se later this afternoon, so that will really mess up what litttle there is.

Nothing in this morning’s forecasts to alter the Goat’s call that I can see…

Have yourself a great Saturday!

Tides: H @0605, L @1245

Weather Situation
A strong high pressure system near New Zealand is slowly moving to the southeast maintaining a ridge to New South Wales north coast and a cold front is crossing the southern Tasman Sea.

Semi-surfless

Posted by: on March 9th, 2013


Hello Friends,

Another day when it can safely be said that wherever you found a wave yesterday is likely to be where you’ll find one today. At Dee Why a metre or so of 7 second period east wind swell was dribbling in at around 0700. A solitary SUP rider to greeted it and with a fair amount of earnest digging, was able to briefly glide shoreward on the odd knee high bump.

The outlook remains much the same as it has for the last few weeks, ie marginal to just surfable mainly easterly wind swell with light onshores early and going NE in the afternoon. From south of the Tweed to the Vicco border, the latest modelling says there will be little change to the conditions for at least another week.

Hey, what can ya do? Keep smilin’ says I, the waves will return!

Tides: H @0615, L @1255

Sticky: Still very small but not quite flat

Posted by: on November 9th, 2012

Hello Friends,

Light winds this morning and a little trickle of east wind swell for the keen amongst us. According to the MHL data, the primary swell direction is east, the average height at sea is a touch over a metre and average period is a light and fluffy 7 seconds.

Where Dee Why’s concerned there’s not much to say. A few bods were in the water getting a bit of paddling exercise. Every now and again a knee high set turns up to add a bit of interest to a quiet morning in the water.

The wind should stay light and variable this morning but the Bureau says that by this evening it should go south to southeasterly. We’re then in for at least a weekend of generally south wind, although it looks to me as though the early mornings might be okay (at least in terms of the wind).

The Goat’s has taken his usual wise look at our surf prospects as the week draws to a close…

Next tide is a low at 0950 and the high will come in at 1555

Hope you have a successful Friday!

Weather Situation
A weak trough has stalled on the central parts of NSW coast since Thursday. Following this a second trough with a fresh to strong and cooler southerly change will extend throughout the coast from Friday and into Saturday. In the wake of this second change a high pressure ridge is expected to build over New South Wales on Sunday and into the new week.
Forecast for Friday until midnight
Winds
Variable about 10 knots becoming north to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the evening then shifting south to southeasterly 15 to 20 knots in the late evening.
