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.
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!
