Dee Why this morning (vid)

Shot this clip before 0700 on Friday. As you can see, it was near, but not quite flat. Long boards ruled!

2 vids from last night at Dee Why

Hello Friends,

Put this post together last night because I expect to be on the road by the time I usually file. Last night just before dusk kicked in, I grabbed a couple of video clips of the point. Looked sorta fun for the 20 odd in the water, albeit a bit lumpy and slowish. At that point the swell was around 2 metres at 10 seconds from 147 degrees (SE). Wind was light and the rain had backed off. Sets were reasonably consistent.

The Bureau’s call for this morning is for more showers and slightly less swell. Figure around 1.5 metres from SE. The big issue’s going to be the period. MHL is predicting 8 seconds or so and that would mean sets about 2/3 to half what they were at dark on Monday. Of more concern is the call for wind to be southerly 15-20 kts.

Tide’s going to be high at 0835 and then back to low at 1500 today. There’s an 80% chance of more rain to add to the woofiness factor (everywhere from Newport to the Shire was considered likely to have pollution).

All and all it’s looking like a good day to not be able to surf (says he who definitely can’t!)

Although the models are calling for it to be smaller (waist-ish) on Wednesday, the weather should be better and we might even have some offshore wind. But Thursday’s looking more promising still with more east to the swell, slightly longer periods (10-12s) and a sunny skies to cook all the bacteria floating around in the water after that rain. With luck the goodness could last into Friday…

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

Here’s the first clip:

And here’s the second:

Delightful morning at Dee Why with light winds and a swell pulsing into the chest plus range on the bigger ones. Here’s a minute from one such pulse at about 1045

Dee Why beach gallery of Sat shots and a video

After going for a quick surf myself, I set up the camera and snapped a couple hundred frames of ordinary surfers catching Dee Why beach waves on Saturday morning.
You can see all the pictures I took by clicking here and jumping to the gallery. And remember, if someone catches a wave, I generally try to get a decent shot of them at the peak moment(s) and I don’t just take pictures of the best surfers. Anyone’s fair game!
The short video below will give you an idea of the conditions.

Pumping SE swell and the first sunny skies and light winds in days on the morning of Friday 8 January 2016. I spent over an hour shooting at the point and toward the end grabbed this video minute for you. The gallery should be online by tomorrow morning…

North Narrabeen at midday Christmas Eve

Out on pre-xmas errands and swung by for a look at Northy. Pretty messy, but also reasonably consistent and some fun little sections to be had in the mix. Not super crowded for the circumstances either…
