Glassy waist high lumps for the patient

Posted by: on December 8th, 2014

Hello Friends,
The odd shower about this morning and wind coming lightly from the WNW as we got started. At 0600, swell around 2 metres from the NE with an average period of close to 10 seconds. Tide’s high at 1010.

Dee Why was glassy to start, getting fat on the incoming tide and an inconsistent waist high.

Outlook is for the wind to stay out of the north most of the day before going southerly this evening. Swell should stick around at about the same level today and with luck we’ll still have a taste tomorrow morning.

Long range modelling this morning predicts that at best we can hope for smaller conditions midweek and maybe marginal but surfable out beyond that. So, dive in and grab a little something if you can, but you’ll probably want to give beaches from Curly to Manly a miss as the Beachwatch people are rating them as Pollution Likely.

PICS Mona Vale as good as it gets Wed 11 Aug

Posted by: on August 12th, 2010

Mona Vale was my last stop on this amazing surf day in Sydney. It was about as good as I’ve ever seen it too. Honing lefts, some going for well over a hundred metres, and lots and lots of thunderous barrels. The crowd on it was going nuts and needless to say my shutter button got a real work out.

PICS: Bungan midday Wed 11 Aug going ‘orf

Posted by: on August 12th, 2010

After shooting at North Narrabeen for an hour, I decided to move to another beach to see what the NE swell was doing. Ended up doing the trek down to Bungan where a crew were extracting numerous moments of intense fun from the overhead sets and clean offshore conditions.

PICS: North Narra, Wed am 11 August – firing!

Posted by: on August 12th, 2010

One of the best days of the 2010 winter surf season, so I blew off writing responsibilities, grabbed the camera and went looking for firing waves. First stop was North Narrabeen where the NE swell was unloading into an offshore wind much to the delight of the assembled crew.
