Bondi 7am – full northerly swell, chunky, bumpy head high sets
Sydney’s northerly weather pattern continues bringing NE winds and a full tilt northerly swell. Swell’s now picked up overnight to a decent size and expect well over head high at north east exposed beaches. It’s a bumpy wind swell lacking real grunt…potentially fun nonetheless. Bondi was sheltered from the NE winds however smaller.
South Bondi was pretty random with the odd right inside, North Bondi looked better with a nice left rockn’ in every 10 -15 minutes (large crowd), very inconsistent. So there’s waves, just pick the right ones and have a look around. High tide 17:51 Low tide 11:57, Wind: N/NE 20/30 knots, reaching 30/35 knot offshore.

Cars are getting stolen from the Bondi carpark (reports Michael Bridges). One went again yesterday morning…you’ve gotta take your key out in the surf with you – don’t leave it in a towel on the beach as you’re being watched, even early mornings. Michael also suggests leaving your valuables at home…Mannie, perhaps leave the blow up doll at home next time. Speaking of cars, someone fire bombed a car out the front of my joint at Tama last night…

If you’re in Sydney for NYE, get sorted for the NYE wonderland party. This years it at the THE HAKOAH on Hall Street Bondi. Tickets are available from Parade Music, Campbell Parade Bondi. (pre sales tickets only).

Saw a preview to a great new surf movie which is coming out next year – RIDING GIANTS. The director Stacey Peralta, of the famed mad skaters in the 70’s, chose to capture the progression of surfing from its Polynesian roots. Great viewing…more info to come…
