Bower and Manly

Posted on June 8th, 2016 in Manly.

Out shooting and had to make the Manly run so can report that there are people in the water at the bower, Queensie and the bombie. Not great quality at Bower as it’s sideshore and full. But sets solidly head plus. Queensie looked nuts. You could get a wave I’m sure, but I just saw bombs sweeping in and smashing hapless paddlers caught inside. Didn’t watch the bombie but saw people out there. Probably inconsistent and fat but 2x overhead on sets (guessing).

Conditions very much affected by the high tide and rapidly fading swell this morning at Manly and Curly. But in both cases there were clean little waves in the knee plus range if you were patient and on the right peak…

Had a chance to watch the waves In the gathering gloom. A near full moon
was glimmering above faintly luminous thunder clouds on the dark horizon.

A couple of snaps for you from Manly at around 0830. Surface conditions were pretty clean, although the water looked kind of suss. Not super consistent, but as the pics show, there were some amusing possibilities if you were in the spot…

Realitively smooth, considering.

Manly, Northy pics

Around 0900 I checked Manly and then North Narrabeen (via Curly) As you can see from the pictures below, Manly was pretty awful. Hardly anyone in the water there, and around at Curly there were only a scattering of folks right up at the north end. Conditions were raw and messy and although there was fun size, the banks are non-existent at the moment.
At Northy there were slightly more people in the water chasing slightly better waves. But again, sectioning, lurching and weird were words that come to mind.
A day for desperates.

A medium size crew was working a small bank or two at North Steyne around 0840 before the SEr really got into gear. Waves mostly promised more than they delivered, but you could get a few turns in before it all went pear-shaped.

Thursday morning at Manly

Posted on September 17th, 2015 in Manly.

Just a couple of snaps from Manly this morning. Wind was straight offshore and there were cute little peaks popping up just off the sand…


Who’ll kick out first at Manly…

Posted on September 3rd, 2015 in Manly, News Stories.

Coming back from my usual morning Manly run, I nearly swerved off the road when I saw the peak at Queenscliff on Thursday morning about 0900. Even though I was on a mission, I had to stop and grab a few snaps. The complete gallery can be seen here

Morning update

Looks as though the cleanest option was Fairy Bower. From there north to Dee Why (and beyond) the surface conditions were very choppy and messy. Freshy and Curly were useless and you needed to be very keen to bother with Dee Why point.

Will keep an eye on it through the day and let you know if anything improves.
