Arvo update: Extra wind push and storm kick, wind was offshore briefly now back onshore. Morning Report: Waves 2-3ft Swell SE @8 secs,winds S-SE 12-22 knots. Still waves but not pretty, directions SE with size around 2ft and occasional better set, winds steady onshore creating plenty of bump and chop, wet and cold but if your keen, enough breaking to keep you fit. S facing/open beaches much of a muchness, maybe marginally better protection in a S corner.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April, however the following beaches at Dee Why and Freshwater are still patrolled by council lifeguards 7 days a week until the end of May. Council lifeguards at Manly patrol over the entire off-season period 7 days a week. Please do not take any risks during the winter period. No Flags = No Swim! The majority of beach patrols will again commence on the first day of the September School Holidays.

Surfing Mums meet here!
Surfing mums is a network of women who surf and are mums (of course), but what sets them apart is that they still want to surf as much as we did before they had kids. Its not about how well you surf, or if you are a long boarder, short boarder, bodyboarder, body surfer or learning to surf. It's about getting wet and having fun!
