SUNRISE SESSION WEDNESDAY AM

Hi Guys,

Just a real quick heads up that Wednesday morning is looking probable for wind. Looking at the charts I’d say there is a good chance of about 20knots of SSE on the coast of Sydney. All the usual southerly spots should be in play and if my foot wasn’t still bad from the Torres Crossing I’d be at Long Reef in the dark pumping up waiting for first light. The wind probably won’t hang about for long and will die off after lunch so get on it early.

For those hitting the sea it’s looking like a few meters of swell mainly from the east but the majority of the swell looks like it won’t hit Sydney until the end of the week and should provide some great surf with off shore winds coming so Wednesday is looking pretty flat for the surfers.

Low tide is 8.45am ish for those that care about things like that, it might help get the waves up a little.

That’s it.. Have fun!

 

 

UPDATE : SUNRISE LONG REEF SESSION

Arrived at the Long Reef carpark this morning in the near pitch dark still wearing pajamas. It was a pleasant surprise getting out the van that the temperature in Sydney has raised a few notches on the dial to a balmy 17c. Snapped a quick shot – that came out a lot lighter than expected – of the view.

The wind in the carpark was a little deceiving behind the bushes. After I’d pumped up the 9 and headed down with surfboard, only to have it blow away in the 30knot gust that came through with a rain squall I decided to swap to the Twintip.

The conditions today were not bad. There was plentiful wind that was quite on shore, surf was between 2ft and 6ft and very messy. Got taken out by one monster dumper and got a good working.

Good see Sonia and a few other die hards turned up early too.
