are you planning ongoing out for a sail in the next three days?

I think the 14 meters was an error or perhaps freak wave... that would be a pretty solid wave it was to hit the shore or a bombie.

Was thinking this morning but got rained out - as sone as had to go to work rain moved on .
Maybe the gunamatta bay south of cronulla and head out to banks of bundenna (pretty gusty though) , or newport if not any west in the wind and not to out of control, Brownwater at the kick or up central coast to north of pitt water not sure what its called.
Maybe sandy point botany.

All dependant on swell size and rain.

yup... the rain is a bit iffy... hate to think what's being washed out into the ocean.

Was thinking about heading down to the Gong but depending on work might have to make due with Sydney.

Tide might be wrong for Botany on Friday.

Might give the Northern Beach a go this afternoon.

will have my eye on Dolls Pt on Friday, should be a big enough swell to be breaking north of the point if the tide is right. I'll do a drive by on thursday arvo.
Had some pretty good sails there over the years it can get over head high with a big enough swell

Hi, could you please explain where the waves happen to break in Dolls Point?
I am having hard time thinking it could be high head over there... Thanks for the input.

Usually it starts breaking a fair bit out. A fair bit in front of the last break wall on the southerly end.

It does need a very big swell and a lot of east in it to really get any decent size or power. Also, the tide needs to be right for it work. Add to that the sand banks that keep shifting and you know why getting a good day here is like winning the lottery.

I haven't seen the place with a decent wave in about 4 years. I am not entirely sure this will be happening tomorrow.

Have just had a look at dolls, set waves are above head high but the tide is too high so the waves are like standing waves. Wind also a bit too much west in it, if it swings SSE as predicted it could be good.
Tomorrow morning might be OK on the incoming tide.
I'll have a look around 0830 but i'm old and soft so it had better be good to get me out of the car.

i drove past at about 2 and it there were consistent wave rolling through, as robbo said not breaking due to the tide. was only waist high if that. didn't hang round for long so sets may have been bigger. swell should be bigger tomorrow so could be on at low tide.
