Quick, There’s wind!

Hi Guys,

Well, there is some kind of wind, its not a lot and it certainly isn’t in the best direction at the moment but the charts are showing it swinging more south! Just captured this pic from the Longy Web cam at surfit.com. Currently there are 2 kites out but going off the angles these guys are running its very onshore. Lets hope it keeps up the correct side of 15knots and swings a little south.

If you are heading out at Longy tho and it’s light, make sure you watch out for the SURF FLAGS that are going to be downwind of you, if its dead onshore you are going to need to end up running along the beach to get out and this will take you through the flags! Walk your lazy bones upto the pole and launch from there to give you enough time to get out before the flags, there is also a big rip up there that will aid you in getting out the back. :)

Enjoy if you can.

The Dee Why washing machine

So the wind has been blowing now for 2 days solid and at Long Reef we have about a 15+knots dead onshore SE wind blowing. The wind has left us with what can only be described as a washing machine! I popped up to the headland at Dee Why point to check out the view and have a cheeky post work beer. I took the small camera to get a few pics and got a few snaps of the only surfer out. There was a messy 5-6ft breaking at the point and it’s really unorganised and short interval. To my surprise there was a few kites on the beach, not to my surprise they all were kiting in the lagoon. Just as I left I saw one person on a black kite try to get out in the white water and seemed to be going ok. If it was you, good on ya!

Here are the few pics i took, not the best. The surfer looks very small and lonely out there.
