Sundown report

Posted by: on July 29th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Swell seems to have peaked this afternoon at close to 3 metres from the south at 12 seconds apart. This was delivering wave faces on bomb sets that were all of 3 metres at Dee Why point and up the beach. It looked to be a touch bigger out at the bombies. Swell seemed a bit fat (tide?) and the angle was just a bit too south for the point. Interestingly I saw a number of long right handers roll in from a point roughly off the south end of the Dee Why SLSC. Could the super peak return…? Pretty busy at the point with lots of unmakeable sections on the biggest ones. There were a few bods out at the bombies too. If you missed out, don’t feel too bad, it definitely wasn’t spectacular quality despite the relatively light wind conditions.

Have a great Friday morning and catch you on the ‘morrow!

Hello Friends,

Watched the point from about 1500 to 1545 this afternoon and can tell you there were still some substantial sets in the mix at Dee Why point. Unfortunately the quality was not great. Yes, if you were in the right spot, there were some speedy sections and lots of face to play with, but overall it was very lumpy and raw – like this morning. The folks in the water were wearing lots of bombs for only occasionally fun looking in between ones.
Meanwhile there were half a dozen out at the Longy bombies where the rights looked better than the lefts. Not small out there either.
Tomorrow should see the wind being W to NW and the swell falling back into the 1-2 metre range by midday, that said, there could still be a few bomb sets for the early morning crew. Whether it’ll be any cleaner than today, remains to be seen. Tide will be at 1120 and there could be some rain to start the day.
The latest models are showing the swell fading almost to flat by Friday morning, before a new 1.5-2m pulse arrives overnight for Saturday.
Have a great Wednesday evening everyone!

Hello Friends,
It’s on. Should be good all morning at SSE magnets thanks to 3 metres of 12-sec energy. Gotta jam, more pics and comment later.

Weather Situation

A high pressure ridge extending across the state from the west has moderated winds over most of the coast, although southern waters are likely to remain windy today as another front moves into the Tasman Sea. A weak trough is forecast to linger in the south on Saturday, while remaining areas experience a shift to northeasterly winds as a high becomes established over the Tasman Sea.

Swell
Southerly 3 to 4 metres, decreasing to 1.5 to 2 metres around midday.

Waves to be had early

Posted by: on August 12th, 2014

Hello Friends,
Cold enough for you this morning? I was impressed at the hardiness of the dozen or so in at Dee Why point around 0730 when the air temp was about 7C. With the light offshore and wet skin, it’d be even more bracing. Still, there were some fun overhead sets hitting the point and conditions were clean. Oddly there wasn’t much going on up the beach. Hardly anyone in the water in fact. Maybe when it warms up a bit…
The favourable conditions don’t look like lasting long. The swell is out of the SSE at close to 3 metres with an average period of around 12 seconds, and it should stick around all day. But the wind is set to turn south soon and the Bureau is calling for 15-20 kts, so it’ll be pretty chopped up at the point and the beachy will be a write off.
Tide is high at 0915 and back to low at 1510.
It’s expected to be showery off and on today.
The south swell, south wind combo should continue through to Friday according to the modelling. Looks like today will be the coldest though.
Stay warm and have a great Tuesday!

Winter warriors

Hello Friends,

Tuesday morning opened with clear skies,. cold air temps and nearly 3 metres of 12-second period SSE swell. Wind was straight offshore too. Where Dee Why was concerned, the set waves were biggest at the beach (once again). Wave faces were overhead and a bit on the bigger ones. I’d expect the bombs to push that metric up even further.

Tide’ll be low shortly after 0900 and will run in a metre or so to be high at 1540.

The plan is to get in earlier rather than later, both for the tide settings and the wind (which the Bureau says will go more southerly in the middle part of the day before coming back around to the SW later. All indications are that the swell will hold at the same level and possibly even pick up a bit because it’s due to peak tomorrow.

The SW wind should hold overnight but tomorrow, when the swell is macking, it looks as though we’ll be having southerlies in the 20-25 kt range. Not the best for Dee Why, worse elsewhere.

If you can’t get in the water today, don’t fret too much. If the forecast models have anything to do with reality, we have another week at least of solid swell energy. After an indifferent autumn, winter is spinning up very nicely indeed.

I betcha know what I’m going to write next…
