Bondi 6:30am – better waves in my hair
Aloha. It’s perfect. Perfectly flat and sunny that is. The shots today are a little misleading, as I waited around 20 minutes for a decent set to roll through which could only be ridden on a mal/jetski/surf ski/rescue board/Tana’s speed boat/hand pod/lylo/submarine/dolphin…so best grab the beach umbrella, a good mag, baby oil (if that’s what you’re into e.g. Karl + Paul + Mannie), and head down for a dog paddle as it’s going to be a spectacular 27 degrees. Winds will swing from SW to SE onshore this afternoon, so the earlier the better. Hell, now is a real good time. Work?…what work. Tomorrow afternoon conditions will improve with a swell increase. Be good for the Billabong Pro Junior which is being held up at North Narra up until Saturday 8th Jan.
