Kinda ugly morning with thick overcast skies,
a slight onshore south wind and average shaped waves (bumpy). You’re not
really missing anything today. Swell is still here, saw a few 3-4 footers,
so if you’re keen for a grovel, I would try the south end of Bondi where
there is a decent bank.

I’m not really happy with the shots today, waited
for ages to shoot someone surfing on a wave – no luck…not many crew
out. High tide 12:13 Low tide 18:15 Water
temp warm 22 degrees, Wind: E/SE 5/10 knots,
becoming E/NE 10/15 knots in the afternoon. Max land
temp. 25 degrees. This swell will fade and small conditions
predicted over the next few days.

An email from one of the Irish surfers in my shots yesterday:
‘I’m the Irish man on the right in the white shorts.
I managed to catch some good waves (for a learner!) today but you snap
me standing around looking like a muppet!

Still, as a famous Irish writer (Oscar
Wilde) once said "…better to be talked about than not to be talked

P.S. How did you know we were
Irish? Was it the fact that we’re crap at surfing?’James
