Manly snaps

Really long waits for the rare waist plus set at mid Steyne.

Waves around this morning

Hello Friends, Yesterday’s south pulse stuck around last night and though it’s off its peak, there were shoulder to head high set wave faces to be had at the better exposures. Plus, it was glassy before 0800. Swell at sea was 2.5 metres at a touch under 8 seconds apart from 174° as of 0710. […]

Wind still SW when I got to Dee Why around 0930. Sets were shoulder plus along the beach and it was relatively […]

Biggest was Curly, but Longy was in the same league (see pics). Manly and Dee Why beach and the point […]

A few piccies for you


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 […]
