More energy this morning

Posted by: on October 28th, 2015

Hello Friends,

Wind was lightly offshore at 0700 and there were set wave faces into the head high range at the point and along the beach from about No Mans. Waves look to be a bit slow and flabby but that could be as much due to the incoming tide (high at 0925) as anything else. As of 0500 the MHL buoy was showing 2.5 metre SSE at 10-sec, so there’s definitely more energy in the mix than this time yesterday.

Wind will gradually come up from the E to NE this morning says the Bureau, but it should be light. The models are predicting the swell to drop a little as the day goes along and to bump down further by tomorrow morning.

Longer range the outlook is for small to very small as we head into the weekend. With any luck though, we’ll still have something to mess around with until early next week. It’s not likely to be high quality but if you’re keen…

Have a great Wednesday every one!

Sticky: It’s still pumping at south spots

Busy early

Nice one

Point still sputtery

Hello Friends,

Another day of good waves at south swell spots. It’s 2.5 metres and coming from the SSE at a juicy 10 seconds apart. This is a near perfect size for Sydney’s beaches. Throw in a westerly of 10 kts, and you have every reason to bend the schedule around for a wave.

Tides: Low @0955 [email protected]

The Bureau says the swell has peaked and will decline this afternoon (but not go flat). However, looking at the MHL data from down the coast, I don’t see any evidence of a drop in energy levels, so with any luck, the juice will continue all day long.

Outlook is for waves again tomorrow and Wednesday, although indications are that the average size will drop below the current chest-shoulder height.

BTW, I’m working through a backlog of shooting from the weekend, and I plan to add more today if possible. For the record I shot at Dee Why beach in the morning, then shot Curly near midday on Saturday. On Sunday I shot Mona Vale mid-afternoon and then went back to Dee Why for the sunset sesh.

Go well with your day!

Weather Situation
A low pressure system located over the southern Tasman Sea will continue to bring fresh southwesterly wind over southern NSW coast during Monday.

A low pressure system is expected to affect the NSW coast Thursday and Friday.

Sticky: Surf for Sunday

Peak around 0815

Point

Hello Friends,

Almost 2.5 metres of nearly 10 sec period SSE swell and wind from the SSW to W at around 0815 this morning when I checked Dee Why. Crowd is up, as you’d expect for a sunny Sunday morning with waves, but it’s not looking totally insane. Waves at both the point and along the beach. Sets are into the head plus range and it seemed a little lully. Still, given the swell and wind settings, there should be a reasonable number of places firing up this morning.

Tide hits low at just before 1100.

Wind should stay about where it is now for this morning and maybe get more south as the day goes along.

Swell looks to be fading during the day and tomorrow the Bureau tells us we’re back to southerly. Still, it looks as though we should have waves of some sort through to midweek.

Weather Situation
A high pressure system south of the Bight is extending a ridge across New South Wales in the wake of a vigorous cold front. This high is forecast to move slowly over southeast Australia during the next few days, with light to moderate wind conditions returning by the start of the week.
Forecast for Sunday until midnight
Winds
South to southwesterly 15 to 20 knots.
Seas
1.5 to 2 metres, decreasing below 1.5 metres around midday.
Swell
Southerly 2 to 3 metres.
Caution
Large swells breaking dangerously close inshore.
Monday 6 May
Winds
Southerly 15 to 20 knots, decreasing below 10 knots in the evening.
Seas
1 to 1.5 metres, decreasing below 1 metre around midday.
Swell
South to southeasterly 1.5 to 2 metres.
Tuesday 7 May
Winds
East to southeasterly about 10 knots.
Seas
Below 1 metre.
Swell
Southeasterly 1 to 1.5 metres.

Hello Friends,

Light offshore winds at around 0700 plus 2.5 metres of 10 second period SSE swell… methinks Sydney has waves atm!

Tide’s low at 0900 and high around 1520. So, it could be good, particularly during the morning at low tide spots.

Yours truly has one more day on this side of the pond and then it’s back to warm water and plentiful waves (liking the look of the long range charts for next weekend…)

Forecast for Monday until midnight
Winds
East to southeasterly below 10 knots.
Seas
Below 1 metre.
Swell
Southerly about 2 metres.
Weather
Large swells breaking dangerously close inshore.

Another fine and mild day in Santa Barbara, but with not much of anything on the wave front. Desperados could chase down the odd knee to waist high dribbler, but that’s about it.

The picture below is Goleta point. Surfers have long called it Campus point because it’s within the boundaries of the University of California at Santa Barbara. Like most waves along Santa Barbar county’s south coast, it’s pretty much a winter spot only. With a powerful NW swell it can deliver waves of over a kilometre. Mostly though it’s surfed just at the top of the point in the zone covered by the picture.

Goleta point aka Campus

Below: Campus point is the one on the right, while Deveraux which I mentioned yesterday is on the left. There are at least half a dozen distinct surf breaks in that little stretch of coast…

Sticky: Not finished yet in Sydney

Hello Friends,

Did you get in for peak day yesterday? From the look of buoy data, the Sydney region copped the bulk of the swell energy. This morning we still have some surf about thanks to around 2.5 metres of SSE swell with an average period of 10 seconds. Dee Why looked.s kinda lumpy and bumpy early and it’s definitely more setty than yesterday.

Outlook is for the swell to continue weakening as the day goes along. If the current trend line keeps moving in the same direction it has since the peak around noon yesterday, I’d say the average swell height will below the two metre mark by close of play. Meanwhile, it should be building up along the north coast.

The latest run of models is showing us drifting back into small and weak windswell conditions across the coming week or so. So I’d get out there and score a few today if you can.

Go well and catch a few fun ones!
