Bondi 7am – shoulder high, not bad…not bad…Pretty hard to pick at the moment… Woke up expecting micro conditions, instead half decent bumps rockin’ into the bay. Bondye had a couple of distinct peaks working quite nicely amongst the summer loving morning crowd. Couple of sets up around head high, but mostly shoulder high. Good […]

Hola! With the recent NE winds, we’ve got some locally generated wind swell from the north. Wind swell is typically weak and short interval. Bit like frothing harbour chop really… best suited to the beginners. Bondi is facing the wrong way today to attract any sort of goodness. Best hunt around for something else facing […]

Bondi 7am – chest to head high, surfable, bit mankyIt’s always a nice surprise to wake up to some rideable waves when the radar hasn’t been forecasting a great deal. Or maybe the radar is just busted, like the speedo in the old beastie Holden. Regardless, if you were up real early, like 5:45am, there […]

Thick grey skies and south winds combined with a small, weak south swell. Wave height is around knee to waist high (may bigger sets) – suitable for beginners (keen ones). Quite messy. Rain made it pretty hard to get a shot…trying to stick ya lens out the car window isn’t conducive to world class photography…here’s […]

Bondi 6:30am – tiny, weak, overcast, sloppy What’s that…rain? Haven’t seen that stuff in a while. Hopefully some of it is reaching our damns. Surf – what’s that? Haven’t seen that in a while either… a dire week ahead with very little forecasted in the surf department. You’d struggle to find a wave over your […]

Twenty five. Now that’s a solid number and that’s how hot is going to be today. Actually that’s about the highlight of today…as the surf is dismal. You could paddle after knee high north easter wind chop but surely you have something better to do. I’d say your 1st swim for the summer would be […]

Wal: “can ya smell it?” Uge: “Wot?” Wal:”Summer (insert dumb grin)”…. indeed amigos – its here. What a sensational morning down the beach. The sun had that element of ‘bake’ to it. The waves unfortunately have backed of somewhat from yesterday’s bag of goodies. Instead of 5-6 foot range, we’re torkin’ 2-3 foot and a […]

Surprisingly the swell has come up overnight more than anticipated and is now producing some solid waves around 4-6 foot range down at Bondi. Biggest its been in some time now. Any beach facing south should attract the same size today. Even though the winds are offshore early (will swing SE onshore this afternoon) it […]

Bondi 7am – shoulder high, sometimes bigger…bit messyMight be a few kids late for work today as we’ve still got small (but good) waves this morning. Nice offshore conditions with a gentle SW breeze under clear skies. Most waves were breaking around shoulder high… a few sets out the back managed to get up over […]
