Just about flat this morning at Dee Why

Posted by: on March 29th, 2015

Hello Friends,

Very tiny at Dee Why this morning when I grabbed the pics. The MHL buoy was picking up 1.5 metres of close to 10 sec period south swell at 0600. So, while it appeared that there wasn’t anything above the knee high mark at the south end of the beach, maybe up toward the pole it’ll be a touch bigger. But, from the look of the ocean, I reckon a waist high wave face will be a bomb today.

Tide is dropping to a low at 1130.

The dire outlook for the coming week hasn’t changed since I checked the models yesterday. It still seems we’ll have to wait until the end of the week for any prospect of an improvement. And even then, the possible uptick is currently shaping to be pretty small. The best prospect seems to be for late Thursday into Friday for some small south wind swell. The longer range models aren’t showing anything of interest for the east coast. They’re showing lots of activity in the southern ocean, but is projected to go past our swell window for the time being.

I’m off to help the Surfrider crew beach clean at Dee Why this morning. I’ll have the camera along in case I spot anything worth sharing.

Have yourself a great Sunday!

Sticky: Little waves to be had for the early

Posted by: on June 24th, 2011

Hello Friends,

As foretold by the swell models, there is a tiny uptick into the just barely surfable range at Dee Why beach (forget the point). Swell is out of the south and is showing at 1.5 metres out at sea. The period is a useful 10 seconds, so places with good south exposure could be into the chest high range on sets. Dee Why was struggling to get much above the waist high mark while I watched it, but I guess there could be sets a bit bigger than that. The outlook is for the swell to weaken through the day and for us to be back to flat tomorrow.

Wind and weather should be just about perfect today. The breeze is due to stay out of the west to NW and the skies should be sunny all day long. Tide is low at 0820 and high just a bit before 1500.

If you can get in for a splash, do so because the models are looking very grim for the next 7-10 days. Huey can always change that on us, so here’s hoping the supercomputers running the numbers are overly pessimistic.

Have yourself a great day!

Late arvo wrap

Hello Friends,

It looks as though a little 10sec period pulse started filling in during the last few hours of the day. I went out for a squiz with board in tow. Ended up not getting in, but came close because there were definitely some waist to chest high plus sets on the bigger ones.

The swell’s pretty straight south, so the spots with best exposure to that direction were doing the most. Plus the tide was kinda high, so fatness was something of an issue. That said, I saw a number of waves that would’ve been worth the wait.

Looking at the buoy data from down south, it seems that the 10 sec component might only last until around midnight. If that happens we could be back to near flat tomorrow morning. My hope is that the power levels will hang in there and that early risers will get something at south swell spots in Sydney. It’ll be high tide at daybreak, dropping to low at 1144.

Here’s the Bureau’s call:

Sydney Coastal Waters, Broken Bay to Port Hacking and 60nm seawards:
Monday until midnight: Wind: W 15/20 knots, freshening to 20/25 knots in the evening. Sea: 1.5 to 2 metres.Swell: S/SE 1.5 to 2 metres.
Tuesday: Wind: W/SW 10/15 knots reaching 15/20 knots at first, chiefly offshore tending E/NE 10/15 knots in the
afternoon.Sea: 1 to 1.5 metres.Swell: S/SE 1.5 to 2 metres.
Wednesday: Wind: N/NE freshening to 15/25 knots in the afternoon and evening.
Thursday: Wind: N/NW 20/30 knots.

There were peaks of one description or another from the bombies to south of the pole at Dee Why. Around at Curly it was people from one end to the other, but it looked most interesting at the south end when I was there. Anyway, here’s a couple minute vid broadcast I made while I was checking it out…

Waves hanging in there

Hello Friends,

Just thought I’d test to see if our pic uploader was working again and let you know that as of 1300, there was still swell aplenty at south facing spots.

From the look of the latest MHL data, the energy levels have stayed about the same all day. Not so sure about tomorrow, but I do note with interest that the period has increased down at Eden, so it is not without hope that I look forward to the possibility of a wave tomorrow (I kinda passed for other stuff today…)

South Curly won't have been the only place with waves today.

Still loads of waves getting into south facing stretches as of 1300.
