Small and clean early

Posted by: on July 19th, 2012

Hello Friends,

Wind was offshore for the early and there were still a few longer period sneaker sets coming in for the very tiny number of people in the water. At Dee Why the best peak seemed to be the one near the SLSC. The biggest wave I saw didn’t get caught by either of the people out catching ’em. It might have been chest high on the takeoff that didn’t happen. Mostly it was quite a bit smaller than that, and there were great stretches of beach with nothing much at all.

The same situation prevailed around at the Collaroy-Narrabeen stretch. There were a couple waist high (on sets) peaks in close to the sand from about Marquesas north. Only 3 or 4 in the water up at Northy which looked to possibly be a touch bigger than down the beach, but not dramatically so.

Outlook is for the wind to come around to the south – and stay there until the middle of next week.

The good thing is that thanks to the baleful wind direction, there should also be a gradual increase in wave heights. So, if you don’t mind dealing with junky surface conditions, there could be a few opportunities at south ends.

Have yourself a top old Thursday!

Hello Friends,
We’re looking mighty summery out there this morning. The beach at Dee Why is ablaze with fluttering flags of a surf carnival, rubber duckies are running in and out from the beach and a knot of surfers were doing their best with the knee to waist high sets.

Wind was light and out of the north at 0830. The Bureau says it’ll stay that direction and pick up to 10-20 kts later. Swell is south but only about a metre at 7 seconds, so it’s not likely to be much above the waist high mark anywhere in Sydney. There is some long period stuff in the mix, so maybe you could get lucky every now and again.

Tide’s low at 1115 or so this morning.

Outlook is for at least a week of this dribble according to the swell forecast model interpretations this morning.

Enjoy your Sunday one and all!

Forecast issued at 4:50 am EDT on Sunday 6 November 2011.

Weather Situation

A slow-moving high pressure system is located over the Tasman Sea. A trough is approaching NSW from the west, and will reach southern parts of the coast early on Monday.

A stronger frontal system es expected to move northwards along the coast on Thursday.

Sticky: Waves for Dad’s day morning

Hello Friends,

Given the data showing on the MHL buoy this morning (a metre from the SE at 7 seconds), it was a pleasant surprise to see chest high plus sets coming into Dee Why around 0830. There’s some 12 second stuff in the mix, so perhaps that accounts for the bigger ones. Wind was out of the NNE at 10-15 kts by 0830 and the surface conditions were reflecting that fact at the Dee Why end of the beach where the ocean looked distinctly choppy.

We’re in for a partly cloudy Father’s Day with a high around 22.

From the shape of this morning’s swell models, it would seem we’re in for more or less of the same across the next week.

Have yourself a good one!

Hello Friends,

As expected, it’s very tiny this morning. I didn’t see anything above waist high in an inspection of Collaroy-Narrabeen and Dee Why-Longy stretches. It was glassy and the skies were clear (despite the call last night for showers this morning). Your best bet for a wave is going to be at your fave south swell location. Get out early because the wind is going to pick up and we’ll have a chance of showers from midday.

Tomorrow looks pretty ordinary with the call being for powering southerly wind and not much in the way of swell. Lovely.

Long range outlook for the Sydney region suggests we might see a slight uptick into the chest high range toward the end of the week, but at this stage it doesn’t look more interesting than that. Wish it was otherwise, but what can ya do?

Have a great day anyway, that’s what!

Go well.

Another weak southerly change is expected to develop on the south coast during Tuesday.
