Gloomy, choppy and small for Sunday morning

Posted by: on November 24th, 2019

Hello Friends,

Looks like a great day to do something other than try to surf at Dee Why (and elsewhere along the beaches no doubt). The pictures really tell the story, but for the record out at sea the bumps are into the 1.5 metre range, they’re coming from the SSE but the period’s a febrile 5 seconds. So, just chop really. Just to round out the picture, the wind is a steady 10kt SSE’r. Blergh. Oh and there’s a possibility of very welcome showers.
Tomorrow looks like being hot and smoky again. Surfwise we’re probably not going to see anything much until maybe Wednesday morning when a little south pulse could turn up with light wind.

We had a brilliant turn out for yesterday’s paddle out at Manly. I put a few pictures on Surfrider’s Facebook page from the Fight For The Bight paddle-out .  To see some of the 50 or so other paddleouts around the country, check out the Great Australian Bight Alliance FB page This should give Equinor a very clear message: no fossil fuel drilling in Australia.

Go well everyone!

Small crew in the water at Kiddies, but waves look paltry.
