Yesterday’s gusty North easterlies kicked up some wind swell. It’s only managing 2-3 foot at easterly exposed beaches though… Interval between waves is short, creating really weak conditions suitable for the power groms – and not much else (wind chop). Winds are still northerly this morning and will howl north east later on today. Sensational […]

Swell has settled in nicely producing more rideable waves this morning (4 foot). It’s slightly smaller than yesterday, yet cleaner and lining up better. The banks at Bondi are patchy, so the best bet is to go for a drive and find a south facing beach with banks or a chunk of reef. Weekend looks […]

Bondi 7am – meaty 4-5 foot, multiple peaks, bit shiftyHola. Our generous ESE swell continues today. Sets around 5 foot at Bondi, some bigger. Still looks very shifty to me. Peak here, peak there…closeout here there. Bit of a lucky dip really. If a pocket protrudes… belt it before the inevitable Bondi fattness. About 60 […]

We’ve got size but not quality. Swell seems somewhat confused this morning…bits and pieces flying in from all around. Loads of crew taking off and stackin’ it after being bucked off. Swells are close together…so I would let it settle for a while. Wave height – head high +, Low tide 5:30am, High tide 11:44am, […]

It will continue to increase in size today and get up around 5-6 foot later tonight. Winds are currently frosty offshores (SW) around […]

Today is a day to be working…hard…(its flat as it gets – currently unsurfable). Try and squeeze in a weeks work in today if can. (For someone like Wal that will only take around 1 hour) Reason being – it’s a great week for surfing (despite what you see at the mo). About time I […]

Nothing to surf today. Great sunrise which I think I caught the tail end of. Put the boards away for the next 3 days. Can’t see any swell until next Tuesday. It is going to be 25 degrees today though, summer is coming. Light to moderate north to northwest winds freshening a little during the […]

Yeah there’s a little bump rockin’ into the bay – a small one, like knee to waist high. Lines are broken and wonky, in need of some power, but you can get the odd one in the middle worth a splash. It will drop off this afternoon with north east winds expected. Swell is coming […]
