Just about flat this morning at Dee Why

Posted by: on May 19th, 2015

Hello Friends,

High tide’s a little after 0900 and low will be at 1450, swell’s only a metre from the SE, but it is 11 seconds apart, so while we’re pretty close to flat, magnet spots should have the odd knee high lump. One such was a Dee Why, just north of the club where, with the right gear, it was possible to pick up something in that size range every now and then.

Wind outlook is for northerlies, although it was pretty light early. The cloudy weather continues too. Tomorrow’s still shaping up to be smaller again and the same is in store for Thursday. However by Thursday evening, the SW wind could be blowing hard as a new south pulse develops.

Swell and wind are shaping to just be nuts on Friday with the former in the 3-5 metre range and the latter 30-40 kts from the south – with cloudy skies and the possibility of rain. Lovely.

Maybe Saturday or Sunday…

Have a great day one and all!

The waiting game

Hello Friends,

Another beautiful morning for Sydney with a high of 23 expected later. The only problem is the lack of waves. According to the MHL buoy floating off Sydney, there’s about a metre of SE swell with a period of 11 seconds. To the extent it matters, the tide will be high at 1015. The wind call is for a summery 15-25 kts of NEr as the day goes along.

The Goat’s forecast should be along soon, but for what it’s worth, the models seem to be pointing toward a weekend for catching up on you non-surf life. You might get a tiny wind-blown burger someplace this afternoon, but you’ll want to be extra keen. And it could be the middle of next week before Huey slings us any energy.

Have yourself a great Friday everyone!

Hello Friends,

An excellent Sunday to catch up with your non-surf life. Nothing going on at Dee Why. On the MHL buoy the swell is detected as coming mainly from the SE at close to 11 seconds apart, but it’s only a metre on average, hence the lack of activity. You might possibly find a little knee high dribble around at Curly or up toward the pole, but really, you couldn’t call it surf.

Outlook for the coming week hasn’t changed much since yesterday, although odds for a decent south pulse next weekend seem to have firmed. Right now the call is for around two metres from the south at about 11 seconds apart. The big issue looks like being the wind which, according to this morning’s predictions from the Bureau, are showing 20-30 kts of south wind for Saturday.

Keep on smilin’ everybody and have a grand day!

Playing the waiting game on Sunday

Hello Friends,

Another sunny day with a trickle of south east swell and offshore winds coming up. Dee Why is showing the odd waist high set along the beach (but nothing at the point). Tide is now coming in to high at 1450, so those little bumps may be adversely affected as a consequence.

The models aren’t suggesting any real improvement in swell energy levels today, but from tomorrow and through to Tuesday there should be a few more interesting options, particularly in the mornings. The predictions are calling for the current metre or so of SE swell to maybe get a bit more east and to bump up closer to the 1.5 – 2 metre range (ie double what it is now). Of the two days, most models reckon Monday will be the better.

Have yourself a great Sunday everyone!

Weather Situation
A complex low pressure system lies over the Tasman Sea, and is combining with a high pressure system over central Australia to direct a west to southwesterly airstream across New South Wales coastal waters. The high will move eastwards across northern New South Wales and into the Tasman on Monday and Tuesday while gradually weakening, with winds along the coast tending more north to northwesterly. A strong cold front will reach the New South Wales coast on Wednesday night or Thursday, bringing strengthening winds ahead of a gusty westerly change.

Not quite flat

Posted by: on February 12th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Are you keen? Really, really, really keen? Well, if you take something big and floaty down to Dee Why this morning, you might get a knee high dribbler to carry you a few metres before exhausting itself on the sands.
Otherwise, if you’ve got other things to do, well, I’d do ’em.
Wind is set to remain lightly onshore today. Swell’s coming mainly from the SE at about a metre with an average period of 11 seconds. That means mostly knee high on the catchable ones, with the very occasional waist high burbler.
Outlook for the remainder of the work week and into Saturday looks like being pretty much more of the same. But then the models are pointing toward a little uptick late Sunday and through to Monday. Beyond that, there’s some divergence among the interpretations but generally it looks like another midweek slump with a rising trend toward the following weekend.
Have yourself a fun old Wednesday and get up to some good where you can!

Early morning paddlers

At long last, a wavelet

Hello Friends,

A run of warm days coming up apparently. Warm days and not much surf, if the Bureau has it right. From the crows nest at 0615, Dee Why could be seen to be hosting half a dozen hopeful participants out in front of the SLSC. After a very long wait, I finally got a snap of someone on a thigh to knee high little left. Judging from where people were sitting, that was probably about an average one.

Swell’s out of the SE at a metre at nearly 11 seconds apart. So, there should potentially be the odd waist plus set at ideally exposed spots. Tide’s high soon, so maybe as it drops… plus, wind will be reasonable for the exposed north corners too.

Today could be the low point surfwise for the next little while. It’s not that we’re likely to get anything big, but at least it should be a touch larger from tomorrow and then out through to the weekend. The warm days will likely encourage the NE’r from early and afternoons will entail sideshore options at best.

From about Saturday onward the charts are kind of interesting. They’re showing a fair amount of activity in the eastern Tasman as a couple of juicy looking systems come in from the north and south. However, this morning’s projections are showing the energy staying over toward NZ and maybe just brushing the north coast and Qld with something above the usual summer weakness. The very long range forecasts are speculating more spectacularly about the end of the month… but that’s la-la land for now.

Have yourself a bewt Tuesday!

Tides: H @0700, L @1340

Weather Situation
A fairly stationary high pressure system over the Tasman Sea maintains an east to northeasterly airstream over the New South Wales coastal waters this week. A trough is forecast to affect the state this weekend resulting in a southerly wind change over the southern half of the state on Saturday.

Sticky: Not much, if anything

Hello Friends,

Very little energy showing on the MHL spectra for Sydney at 0300 and Dee Why bore this out as of 0600. From the crows nest I really couldn’t see much of anything you could catch at Dee Why. There were a couple of folks out for a paddle, but really no sign of anything like the last couple days’ waves. Instead we had grey murky grey skies and a slight drizzle along with a incoming king tide (high’s at 0830). About the only good thing was the lack of any wind.

Good morning to stay in bed a little longer than usual.

Outlook for the remainder of the day is, well, not much of anything.

Tomorrow there does seem to be some hope of a little something toward the middle of the day at more protected north corners. Saturday’s shaping to go onshore, but there could be some burgery stuff to play in – if you like that sort of thing.

Have yourself a top old Thursday everybody!

Lazy Sunday

Tiny peak

Hello Friends,

According to the MHL buoy at 0930, the main energy was coming to us from the south. It was around the metre mark with an average period of 11 seconds. That means there are little waves to be had at the south magnets. I reckon the best you’re likely to see will be waist to chest.

Should stay SW today and not get too windy. Oh, and it’ll be sunny too. Not a bad sort of day to wander down to the beach with a relaxed attitude and something floaty from the quiver.

Swell should come up for tomorrow and the morning could potentially be as good as it gets for the next week or so – at least. I’m hoping for shoulder plus at south magnets.

Have a top old Sunday!

Hi all,

For those of you who got out at No Mans on Tuesday afternoon from around 215 to 355 pm, I got some pics. Like 300 of ’em.

If you got a wave, chances are I got a snap. Anyway, I’m calling the conditions 7-8 out of 10, so even if you weren’t there, you might want to check it out by heading over to the page on my blog here.
