The hefty swell of the day before had backed off a fair amount for Saturday, but there were still a few double-overhead bombs keeping things interesting for the 40-odd people in the water around 0900. There are 90 pictures in the main gallery which, as usual, you get to simply by clicking on any of the pictures in the slideshow below.
Swell bumped up overnight on Friday morning it was steaming in at 3-4 metres from the south east with an average period around the 10-second mark. Conditions were tricky and wave faces on bomb sets were into the double-overhead range. I shot from the usual mix of locations and ended up with a gallery of 136 shots. As usual, clicking on any of the pics will take you to the complete gallery where of course you can buy any that interest you!
After shooting at Dee Why, I headed up to North Narrabeen to see what the swell was doing. A huge crew was on it and there was a bit of bounce coming off the beach, but there were some solid sets and plenty to take pictures of.
To see all the shots I grabbed between 430 and 530 pm, jump to the gallery. If you caught a wave, I probably caught you on it. And as always, all pics can be purchased simply by clicking on them and looking top left for the buying link. Oh and don’t forget, I’m offering 33% off any pic orders in January.

Dee Why was keeping a large crew reasonably entertained late Sunday afternoon.

Happened to be driving by Dee Why around lunchtime when the cloud cover lifted and the light started looking better. A messy south windswell was being mined out for moments of fun by a reasonable size crew. The air was really cold, but the last of the weird warm water was still on hand. So I fanged off a few shots for your amusement. As usual, I was taking pictures of just regular folks, so if you see yourself or a mate amongst them, remember they can be purchased very inexpensively.
Spent half an hour shooting at Manly between the constant showers. Here are a few of the snaps. If you were in the water at the peaks between North and South Steyne from about 2-230pm, you might want to have a look at the whole collection here!
