Bondi 7am 1-2 foot, forgetaboutit
It’s a day for the beginners. Tiny weak waves were struggling to produce anything decent. Long waits between ripples and a huge morning crowd enjoying the sunshine. Great morning to be doing something other than surfing, water is still chilly 17 degrees, but worth a dip. I’m sorry to report that the next 5 days looks quite dismal on the swell front so expect to see those twitchn’ man grommmies to be loitering in car parks on skate boards, hanging out in the park or filling up the pub. Wind: NE/NW 5/10 knots tending NE 20/25 knots in the afternoon. Maximum of 23 degrees today – perfect day. Get outside – spring is near. You’ll get this email late today. Sorry, still resolving techo problems.

The Brad Valenti memorial surf comp is on this Saturday 28th August (not Sunday as mentioned in my previous emails). If you need any further info email Ben Davies. Brad Valenti was an old school Bondi local who passed away in 1995 only aged 23 years old. He was a real character in area and respected surfer. Everyone welcome to surf or just come down and watch.
