Sticky: VIDEO: Sth Narrabeen tow-ins this morning (Weds)

Posted on August 1st, 2012 in South Narrabeen.

Spent awhile watching and shooting the crazy persons towing in to crunching double plus overhead waves at south Narrabeen. Long wait for waves, so I only came away with a small gallery (to be posted later). I also fired up the video mode on my Nikon D7000 and grabbed a few somewhat shaky* clips for your amusement. (*I was shooting handheld with a heavy 300mm lens!)


Waves about this morning

Hello Friends,

Still a couple metres of more easterly swell around this morning. Sets at exposed spots are shoulder high plus. At Dee Why that meant bigger and more consistent in the beachy than at the point. Around at Collaroy-Narra stretch, the southern extent had its share of picturesque looking shutdowns while at Northy a good size crew were grabbing anything that came through the joint.

Wind is light NW.

oops, running late, gotta go

Weather Situation
A low pressure system over the eastern Tasman Sea is moving away from Australia, while a high lies across southeast New South Wales. By Wednesday the high will have moved to the Tasman Sea as a trough enters western New South Wales. Northerly winds will develop ahead of this trough, which will bring a south to southwesterly change to the coast during Thursday and Friday.
Forecast for Wednesday until midnight
Winds
Variable about 10 knots becoming northerly 15 to 20 knots in the afternoon, possibly reaching 25 knots offshore late evening.

Below 1 metre increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres by early evening.

Filling Quickly.

Posted on July 9th, 2012 in South Narrabeen.

There are small waves around but will be filling quickly up to the lunch time high.  2 foot ESE.  Enjoy.  Surf Photos of You.

 


Fast and shutting.

Posted on July 7th, 2012 in South Narrabeen.

Swell is still on the downward trend.  2 – 3 foot from ESE.  Most are a bit straight and shutting down.  Nice early condition with an SW offshore.  Surf Photos of You.

 


The east energy continues but down a touch

Hello Friends,

Out and about this morning and it looks as though the swell has backed off a touch but it ain’t tiny.

Swell is still out of the east. It’s about 2 metres on average at sea with an average period of 11 seconds.

That means overhead sets at exposed spots.

The water still looks pretty ordinary though. The lagoons have broken through and places like Northy look like tea water on the inside.

From what the Goat says (see below) and the look of this morning’s swell models, we should NW wind and solid east swell today. The trend is gradually declining, so it’ll likely be at its biggest this morning.

Go well with your Friday, and if you see me out and about with the camera, say hi!

Sticky: Pumpin’ Thursday morning

Posted on June 14th, 2012 in At large, Dee Why, North Narrabeen, South Narrabeen.

Hello Friends,

It’s on boys and girls – but you better be pretty good because there are some serious sets in play this morning at spots exposed to the 12 second, 3 metre east swell. We have light westerly wind this morning, and it’s basically due to stay this way all day long.

Outlook is for the swell to push along at more or less the same size today and drop a touch for tomorrow. But weekend warriors won’t be missing out because on current modelling, it should still be pushing along pretty nicely come Saturday morning.

I’m hoping to get out with the camera, so wave hi if you see me!

Sticky: Here we go…

Hello Friends,

The swell has begun to fill in this morning. At 0630 it was starting to light up numerous peaks along the North Narrabeen to Collaroy stretch and it was making itself felt from No Man’s to Dee Why point as well. But there will be waves everywhere in Sydney this morning.

Wind was picking up from the SW as per the forecast and the swell seemed to me to still be fairly inconsistent. There were lots of nice looking lines, but folk were sitting out the back at many places and that tells me that there are a few bigger ones in the mix – but that they aren’t all that frequent – yet.

Primary swell direction was dead south according to the MHL data this morning. Average size at sea is around the 2 metre mark and average period is a touch over 8 seconds. Wind is set to go southerly and pick up this morning before going SW later. At first light it was out of the WNW, so the early risers may well have the best of the surface conditions.

Swell should build slowly over the next 24 hours as we get a mix of east and south swell coming in. I’m expecting head high plus regularly tonight and overhead to 1.5x overhead on sets tomorrow and Monday – with the odd bomb bigger than that at optimally exposed locations.

Seeya out there!
