Bondi 2-3 Foot, playful but bit on the small side, crowded
As expected the swell has retreated overnight robbing us of the fun head high chunx of yesterday. It is still surfable, yet small and crowded – unfortunately predicted to drop as the day progresses. On the bright side, it feels like summer with salubrious sunshine, light offshore breezes and a strange morning mist that hid North Bondi headland from view. This southern swell will only show at beaches facing south, and the next couple of days looks microscopic…so it may be a good day to join the Page boys down the beach, slap on the baby oil and parade around in those speedos – not!

If you’ve been receiving my emails in the middle of the night – sorry. Havin’ a shocker with technical problems which should be rectified today (fingers crossed). A special thanks to Ben Emblin for kindly loaning his Canon 10D to Aquabumps whilst mine is in repair. So expect more water shots for the next week…

Don’t forget the Brad Valenti memorial surf comp on this Saturday at Bondi. (sorry I thought it was Sunday – but its this Satruday!) Even if you don’t enter, why not come down and sit on the hill and watch some good surfing action. Or hit the Beach Road Hotel on Sat nite for the after party. Keen to surf? 1st Heat starts at 8am Sat. Cadets and juniors need to enlist via Crack surf shop by tomorrow (Thursday). Cost $20. Heaps of prizes up for grabs. Any questions – email BEN DAVIES.
