She's blowing a howling onshore down on Manly Beach today and the surf has been blown to smithereens. There's a little bit of NE wind swell but it's not a pretty picture. Luckily there's two sides to Manly Beach and over on the leeward side of Manly it's as glorious a day as any. The sun's high in the sky, the water is warm(ish) and it's glassy and protected from the wind. Well worth a stroll around the corner to find a little protection. Looks like this onshore pattern is going to continue for a few more days adding a little more strength to the Nor-East wind swell. The early morning sessions might offer a little relief from the onshore otherwise head up the beaches, over the bridge or wait til Thursday/Friday when we may see a Southerly change.
