Sunny, windy and small for Saturday

Posted by: on June 11th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Tide was just about at the 0720 low when I grabbed a few snaps of the surf doings this morning. Only half a dozen people in the water from Marquesas to Northy as the sun peeped over the horizon. Wave faces looked to be bigger at the southern end where I saw one set that was about chest high on take off. Around at the Dee Why to Longy stretch, the same conditions prevailed. Kiddies up to about the pole had the best of it (no one was in the water at Longy before 0700). It was glassy and there seem to be some peaks post all the excitement of the last week. Nice change from the endless straighthanders.

The Bureau’s hoisted a strong wind warning for the coast today. The daybreak 10-15 kt WNW should pick up to be 15-25 kts W and then 20-30 kts SW this evening. At the same time the 1.5 metres of SSE swell we saw early is expected to get knocked down by the wind.

It’s going southerly overnight and by tomorrow morning is set to be 20-25 kts along with a 2-3 metre south and east swell combo. So maybe a wave to be had in the south corners if you’re lucky.

Some of the models are showing a little of the Sunday swell sticking around into Monday as the wind drop back. Basically shaping to be a quiet surf week thereafter. Figure on knee to waist at magnets I’d say.

Have yourself a top old Saturday!

Manly, Northy pics

Posted by: on December 8th, 2015

Around 0900 I checked Manly and then North Narrabeen (via Curly) As you can see from the pictures below, Manly was pretty awful. Hardly anyone in the water there, and around at Curly there were only a scattering of folks right up at the north end. Conditions were raw and messy and although there was fun size, the banks are non-existent at the moment.
At Northy there were slightly more people in the water chasing slightly better waves. But again, sectioning, lurching and weird were words that come to mind.
A day for desperates.

Sunny Tuesday morning, but near waveless

Posted by: on September 8th, 2015

Hello Friends,

A beautiful morning in Sydney. Bit nippy to start, but skies are clear and wind was lightly from the W-WNW. Alas, there were no waves to be seen when I scanned the beach for the first time around 0630.
Looking at the MHL data from 0500, there was about 1.5 metre, 12-sec SSE swell being detected. At Dee Why that was translating into nothing at the point and only the tiniest hope of a knee high bomb set up the beach from there. Tide was high at 0445 and will be low at 1025. Weather outlook is for a high of 20 and a mostly sunny day.
Swell is supposed to pick up a tiny bit tomorrow according to the Bureau. But it’ll be southerly with an overlay of S-SW wind in the 15-20 kt range. So not spectacularly wonderful prospects I’m afraid. The more optimistic predictions are saying we might get into the shoulder high plus range at south magnets.
Thursday is predicted to be afflicted with southerly wind in the 15-25 kt range, but the swell should be down by not too much over Wednesday’s peak. The early will be the best shot I’d guess.
Have a great Tuesday everybody and get up to some good where you can!

Hello Friends,
Light winds and about a 1.5 metres of 11 second period SSE swell were not delivering much for Dee Why as we approached the 0815 high tide under mostly cloudy skies. However, the Bureau is still saying that we can expect the swell to bump up around midday and to stick around at the improved size until tomorrow morning when it will start fading back again.

As of 0730 though, you were looking at glassy waist high occasional sets where Dee Why was concerned. I’d guess that south magnet spots would be showing a bit more.

The swell forecast model interpretations are all over the shop this morning, but for the most part they’re showing not much between now and next weekend. There seems to be some prospect of a swell generating system forming up in the Tasman around Sat-Sun. But between now and then, it’s looking rather quiet for this time of year.

Ah well, that’s surfing eh? Have yourself a happy Monday!

Tides: H @ 0815, L @1330

Not a lot going on as Monday started

Hello Friends,

Get in early to beat the southerly change. Swell’s showing around 1.5m from the SSE at close to 11 seconds apart. Wind was light early so the surface was smooth for the waist to chest high sets turning up at Dee Why. The swell isn’t quite big enough to make the point do anything much, so all the action is along the beach.

The Bureau says the wind will go around to the SE in the middle of the day and by this evening should be into the 20-30kt range. It supposed to be southerly, but lighter tomorrow morning and unfortunately the swell will be dropping too. Right now the models are saying it might perk back up a touch for Saturday before we go back into another prolonged period of minimal activity.

I’ll go out for a closer look at the situation shortly and will try to file something later.

We’re inching toward the 50% mark on the crowdfunding effort. It’d be a very good thing if this is was the day that you jumped in with your pledge! Thanks

Forecast issued at 4:10 am EST on Thursday 12 September 2013.
Weather Situation
A weak high is centred over western New South Wales, while a cold front passing to the south maintains southwesterly winds along much of the coast. This high will drift toward the northeast during Thursday as a trough brings a southerly change to the southern and central coasts, extending to the north early Friday. Another high will strengthen to the west of Tasmania during this time, extending a ridge northwards behind the trough. Winds will shift northeasterly later Friday and Saturday as the ridge moves to the Tasman Sea, freshening before a trough brings a westerly wind change later on the weekend.
