I vote YES to surfing today! YES! tick.
Suns out, waves are consistent, rip bowls are on. It’s pretty crowded and hard to get a wave at Bondi, so I would go for a drive and score my friends. The weather is just awesome and tomorrow is going to hit 28 degrees. Perfect for the SurfAid Cup at Manly tomorrow (kicks off at 8 am).
Thank you so much to all the readers that donated to Surfaid via our Aquabumps surf team, I greatly appreciate it. My sons will come around and mow your lawn, wash your cars and take out the rubbish. We raised $8.5k for the needy people of remote Indonesia.
Firstly, I want to apologise. The images in today’s post are full of dust spots. When you shoot arty pharty slow shutters (with tiny apertures) you need a squeaky clean image sensor – that I don’t have. So instead of spending the next 3 hours de-dusting these shots, I ran ’em…just as they are. If you want a print, I’ll just have fill the work experience kid full of caffeine and get him onto it.
As forecasted the swell has leapt up. I saw sets around the 4-5 foot mark which was thoroughly impressive. It’s super junky though. Heaps of bump, wobble and side chop to hop. A mega-rip in the southern corner, just in front of Icebergs is creating a solid wedge on the right conditions. You’ll need your paddle fitness though, it will drag you out to New Zealand in a matter of seconds.
If you’re doing nothing, get out there.
If you’re busy, wait until it settles.
Hope this swell hangs around for Friday’s SurfAid Cup at Manly.
