Warriewood STP discharge Warning

Posted by: on June 4th, 2016

You really shouldn’t be contemplating getting in the water right now… particularly at Warriewood…

Received at 1430 on Sat 20.6.16, from Sydney Water to RealSurf on behalf of Surfrider Foundation:

Partially treated discharge at Warriewood WWTP at 1428 4/6/16. Flows receiving wet weather treatment.

Warriewood Overflow Warning

Received the following directly from Sydney Water

“Partially treated discharge at warriewood at 5:25pm 5/1/16. Flows receiving wet weather treatment.”

Warriewood provides secondary treatment so when there’s a partially treated discharge, it means that not all the effluent exiting the system a few hundred metres from Warriewood beach is treated to that standard.

Afternoon update, wind dropping a little but still messy most places

Posted by: on February 5th, 2014

Out on an errand this afternoon and had a chance to check Warriewood-Mona and Collaroy-Narra around 3pm. You weren’t missing much. Wind has backed off a fair amount but it’s still SE and the ocean is still messy and lumpy and disorganised. Only folk I saw in the water were half a dozen messing about in the slop burgers at Warriewood. As the pics show, nothing amazing, but you could have a bit of fun with ’em. And that’s not a bad thing!

They're gonna yell at you mate...

One of the few options this afternoon - and not crowded at all.

Out and about

Had to run an errand early and came home via Warriewood, Northy and Longy-Dee Why.

As of 1030 the little south swell was still looking pretty lully, but every now and then a set appears and the fun can begin. Don’t be in a rush and I’m sure you’ll jag something!

South swell of a couple metres and SW winds combined to deliver the Warriewood crew some of the better waves around the northern beaches on Saturday morning. I stood on the beach for awhile and shot over a 100 snaps of the action.

Around 0815 there were a few makeable ones in the mix.

The short version is that there are sizable sets at Warriewood for the hardy band that have battled out through the relentless big windswell. Sets are into the overhead range and the wind’s not too bad right in the corner. However, as you come down the beach it becomes more of a factor. As a consequence, there is good size at the other end of the beach at Mona Vale, but it’s just too messy for anyone to have bothered to paddle out.

More observations soon…

Noon update: pumpin’ still

Got a few snaps from my wander this morning. Shots from Narrabeen, Little Narra, Warriewood, DY luga, etc

Also managed to shoot a bit of vid at the Luga where the Psillakis brothers had it pretty much to themselves…
If you can possibly get away for a wave, do it!
