Sticky: Waves for Friday morning

Posted by: on August 3rd, 2012

Rob of Rob’s eye on Dee Why fame and your humble correspondent went for a dip among the peaks at Dee Why this afternoon. Super clean conditions, some long lulls, but the odd head high plus set around to keep it interesting. And not all that crowded either.

 

 

Hello Friends,

High cloud and smooth surface conditions for the early session this Friday at Dee Why. There was a tight group sitting on the point and lots more scattered north from there at various peaks along the beach. The swell has dropped to two metres from the SE, but the average period is still holding at 10 seconds, so there definitely a few head high sets left in the locker.

From the shape of this morning’s forecasts, it looks as though there should be waves all day, but the average size should trend down. Happily the Bureau tells us it’ll be offshore all day.

Outlook is for another little perk early tomorrow and then it seems we’ll head into gradually smaller to flat conditions before things turn around surfwise early next week.

Get out there and have fun!

TIDES: H @0900, L @1445

The high and ridge will remain almost stationary over the weekend as a series of weak fronts pass to the south of NSW.

Hello Friends

Coming back from an editorial meeting for Photo Review Australia mag, I stopped by Manly to see what the swell was doing. Still going is the short version. Tide was kinda full but there weren’t too many people in the water and some of the sets were perfectly surfable and into the head high plus range still. It seems the average period has crept up to around the 10 sec mark.

Didn’t see anyone in the water at Curly. Stopped for a few minutes to watch Dee Why and it too was relatively unpopulated considering the conditions. The light sideshore was not troubling things too much. The point looked the best, but there were a few on the peaks in front of the surf club as well.

Have a great evening!

Hello Friends,

Sheesh! Pictures of me surfing on my own website, how naff is that? (thanks Rob!) Actually the waves were kinda fun in a slow sorta way. The sets were pushing into the head high range and there were definitely a few to be had with some push to them, but mostly they felt a bit soft and flabby. Still, it was great to be in the water on yet another beautiful morning in Sydney. I grabbed a few snaps with my Panasonic FT1, so herewith for your diversion…
