Waves for Sunday morning

Posted by: on June 26th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Sunny skies and better than that, a couple metres of 10-sec SSE swell lighting up Dee Why with chest to shoulder high sets at the point and along the beach. Tide’s heading into the high at 1245. Wind was out of the west at 10-15kts and it’s expected to move more SW later, but not pick up any more. So there should be waves all day and with any luck it’ll only drop back a bit through to mid week.

Have yourself a top old Sunday everyone!

Murky conditions but swell continues

Posted by: on March 29th, 2016

Hello Friends,

According to the latest data from the MHL buoy at 0400, the swell was close to 2 metres from the SSE at 9 seconds apart. The decrease in average period over the last 24 hours means that waves are distinctly smaller than this time yesterday.

As of 0715, wind was coming from the south at 10-15 kts. It wasn’t too smashed up looking at Dee Why, but the heavy overcast didn’t make it too appetising either. Even so, there were a few folks waiting hopefully for the next set when I grabbed a pic.

Tide is heading to the high at 1300 and water quality was marked as suss by beachwatch yesterday afternoon.

The swell models are generally pointing toward a decline to marginal conditions across the remainder of the week – although a couple of the interpretations of the data are being hopeful about a Thursday morning uptick from the south. But outside of that, it seems we can expect not much of anything through to mid next week at least. Guess we shouldn’t grumble given how much swell we’ve had for this time of year.

Have yourself a great Tuesday everyone!

Weather Situation
A broad low pressure trough lies across the western Tasman Sea directing northeast to southeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast. This trough will deepen today with a low pressure system likely to develop off the southern coast later today and move out into the Tasman Sea during Wednesday. East to southeasterly winds about the southern coast are forecast to strengthen on Wednesday, with a south to southwesterly surge likely to extend along the New South Wales coast on Wednesday and Thursday as the low moves out into the Tasman Sea.

Swell dropping but still some fun ones around this morning

Posted by: on January 9th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Definitely smaller and more southerly this morning, but there are waves to be had if you look around. The change in swell direction and slight decrease in energy levels has taken the energy focus away from the point (which was going off yesterday) and up the beach. Set wave faces at the former were around the chest mark but at the latter there were definitely a few head plus ones coming through at 0630.
The MHL buoy was showing 2 metres of 9-second SSE swell. The NE component is just about gone now.
Wind was light early too, plus the tide was coming into the high at 0830, so conditions were just about as good as they’ll get I’d say.
According to this morning’s swell models, it’ll drop across the day and be small to marginal for tomorrow morning. The rest of the week is looking more summery – both in terms of the weather and the lack of significant surf.
So get out there now if you can. And even if you can’t, have a top old Saturday!

Weather Situation
A weak ridge of high pressure lies over coastal New South Wales, promoting light to moderate winds over most waters today. During Sunday a high will strengthen over the Tasman Sea while a trough develops near the state’s western border. This pattern should generate increasing northeasterly winds over most waters by late Sunday, freshening further at the start of the week as the trough moves east. This trough is forecast to bring a southerly change to southern and central parts of the coast during Tuesday.
Forecast for Saturday until midnight
Winds
Variable about 10 knots becoming northeasterly 10 to 15 knots in the afternoon and evening.
Seas
Below 1 metre.
Swell
Southerly 1.5 to 2.5 metres.

Waves, mostly small, but surfable for Saturday am

Posted by: on September 5th, 2015

Hello Friends,

This morning saw a low tide at 0710. The MHL buoy was picking up a 9-sec, 2 metre SSE swell plus a little NNE energy. Wind was lightly offshore.
Swell should be getting into a fair number of places for now, but the outlook is for it to fade into the marginal range over the next 24 hours and the front half of the week isn’t looking too special.
Most interesting spots I saw were at Northy and No Man’s (see below).
Some hope though for another 2 metre-ish south-ish pulse midweek. The big question mark is the wind which right now the Bureau is predicting to be S-SW in the 20-25 kt range on Wednesday, going more S-SSE on Thursday.
Have yourself a stoking Saturday everyone!

Hello Friends,

Energy levels have dropped a little overnight, but there are still waist to chest high sets along the beach at Dee Why as of 0700. The point’s pretty small, but if you have a mal or a SUP, there are the occasional sliders coming around the rocks.

Swell continues to run at about 2 metres out at sea. It’s coming out of the SSE at close to 9 seconds apart, so that’s down a little from yesterday. But it ain’t flat.

Wind was WNW early, but the forecast is calling for southerlies of 15-20 kts – and then it’ll go SE from tomorrow as the cloud increases. Right now it’s shaping to be So, the plan pretty much is to go now if you can.

Outlook is for conditions to be southerly to easterly from later today through to Saturday or even Sunday.

Have a great Tuesday one and all, and stay happy!

Hello Friends,

This morning sees the swell out of the SSE at a touch under 2 metres at sea with an average period in the neighborhood of 9 seconds. Wind was lightly S to SSW when your correspondent climbed aloft to the crows nest for a look around 0730. Ocean looked pretty bumpy out at sea, but lightly choppy inshore at Dee Why where there’s a little protection. Wave faces at the point are struggling to make waist high while along the beach they’re a touch bigger, maybe chest on the bigger ones. Hardly anyone in the water, so if you don’t mind choppy little lumps, it should be pretty cruisy. Wind is expected to push up into the 15-25kt range though.

Head’s up from beachwatch that pollution is likely at Manly (everywhere else has the all clear).

Outlook hasn’t changed much. The Bureau says we can expect southerly wind tomorrow morning too and from late morning on Wednesday. Swell is forecast to run along at about the current intensity for the next couple of days before we possibly see a longer period pulse on Thursday. Wind however may not play nice. Right now the models are projecting SSE to southerlies in the 15-20kt range through to the weekend at least.

Have yourself a great Monday!

Weather Situation

A deep low pressure system over the southwestern Tasman Sea and is moving east and weakening as a high pressure system moves south of the Bight extending a ridge to the northern coast of New South Wales. Southerly winds are expected to gradually turn southeasterly during today and tomorrow as the coastal ridge strengthens. On Wednesday a surge in the southerly winds associated with a weak trough is expected to progress along the southern and central coasts.

Aw, Huey, whatcha doin’?

Posted by: on December 20th, 2014

Hello Friends,

Although the MHL Sydney buoy was showing nearly 2 metres of SSE wind swell at close to 9 seconds apart, the 0735 high tide appeared to have swallowed up any surfing options for Dee Why. There were only a few hopefuls bobbing around up toward No Man’s when I checked for the first time around 0645.

From the look of the swell models, there isn’t much hope of improvement between now and Christmas – at least.

If you can find a little splashworthy bump in the knee to waist range at a magnet spot before the SE’r knocks it about too much, you’ll be doing well.

Water’s lovely though, so that’s something.

Have yourself a top old Saturday and get up to some good where you can!

Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure extends along the New South Wales coast in the wake of a cold front. A high pressure centre is expected to become established off the coast today, maintaining a ridge northwards to the Queensland coast. This high will remain over the Tasman Sea for a number of days, with winds shifting more northerly in most areas during Sunday and Monday. The next trough and southerly change are likely to affect southern and central areas during the second half of the new week.

Smaller, but clean early

Posted by: on August 22nd, 2014

Hello Friends,

This morning saw a mix of south to south east swell and wind swell. The dominant source was coming from the SE. It was around the two metre mark and 9 seconds apart as of 0600. Wind was lightly west to NW under drizzling skies and the ocean looked smooth but pretty lumpy. Sets were into the shoulder plus range at both the point and along the beach. It seemed to be a little less consistent than yesterday though.

Tide was high at 0610 and will be back to low at 1150.

Wind is expected to turn more east to SE but not to get much above the 10 kt mark. We should have intermittent showers through the day.

Were you in the water at North Steyne yesterday morning from about 0900? If so, you might like to see if you’re among the 314 pics I shot of regular sufers.

Sticky: Waiting for the wind

Posted by: on September 16th, 2013

Nothing wrong with that

A little peak

Hello Friends,

Smooth chest plus sets at Dee Why beach for the early, but the wind is set to ramp up to 25-30 kts NE this afternoon. By tomorrow morning, the Bureau says it’ll be gale warnings snapping in the rigging. The plan is to get in asap if you want clean conditions. Later on the very protected north corners could be the go. Wherever you go in a NE’r basically.

Tide was high at 0520 and will be low at 1110.

90% chance of rain today, so water quality isn’t going to improve until the sun comes back midweek – although long term outlook is for more showers late in the week. We definitely need the rain, so no complaints from me.

We’re launching into the 4th week of the crowdfunding campaign with the total pledged sitting just shy of the 50% mark. Next Sunday will be the half way point, so right now we’re a little ahead of where we have to be. Here’s hoping a few more of you who’ve been watching from the sidelines, will get on board today. I reckon if we could get 150-200 people involved, it’d happen.

Go well!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system to the southeast of Tasmania extends a ridge towards the southern NSW coast ahead of the next trough which is expected to cross the NSW coast on Tuesday. North to northeasterly winds are expected to strengthen over most waters during Monday or early Tuesday as this trough approaches. A low pressure system is expected to deepen off the southern half of the coast on Tuesday as the trough passes overhead.

Sunday surfin’

Posted by: on May 19th, 2013

Rather busy

Point not quite happening

Hello Friends,

Nice morning with light offshores and a couple metres of south swell with a 9 second period. Should be fun at all the south magnets. And crowded at the better ones. Dee Why currently has a little complex of peaks just north of the club, so most of the population is hanging around there chasing mainly lefts in the chest plus range. Quite a few mals out this morning too, so that may hint at something.

Wind should stay SW all day and be pretty fresh again (15-25 kts). Low tide’s at 0905 and high is at 1530. So the morning should be fun at a lot of places.

Outlook is for the swell to hold at about the current size and then to maybe pulse up a bit tomorrow, before dropping back into the waist plus range from Tuesday. The good news is that there should be waves of some description for pretty much the whole week.

Get out and have yourself some fun!

Weather Situation
A low pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea will continue to bring fresh to strong southwesterly winds over the southern NSW coast on Sunday. The low is expected to move slowly east during the next couple of days, maintaining a southwesterly airstream over NSW coast. A high is then expected to develop south of Tasmania early next week, extending a ridge along the southern NSW coast Tuesday/Wednesday.
