"This fog is from the butcher smoking his great hams," said one villager. "Can’t you smell them?" We woke to find ourselves shrouded in thick fog. So thick you can barely see 10 metres in front of you. Difficult to see out the back for sets…but I’m guessing it’s around knee to waist high and […]

If you were sitting on a rock in the south corner of Bondi at 6am you would’ve seen weak 1-2 footers infrequently breaking right. Small crew scrappin’ around enjoying summer-like conditions. Good for beginners. Winds are offshore and the flies have thinned out. Low tide 10:28 am, High tide 5pm. I reckon the morning will […]

Hola. Another cracker morning with sizzling sunshine. Yesterday’s chunky NE swell has dropped considerably leaving 2-3 foot scraps at exposed beaches. Bondi wasn’t drawing much at all…around 1- 2 foot and pretty weak. Good for the beginners. Max 26 degrees today. SW winds early tending NE this afternoon. Damn flies out-a-control…billions of them on our […]

Hot. Cooking morning with a true summer style bake early in the day – BOM say we’re going to hit 32 today. Now that’s what I like to see. 1,000,000 up early enjoying this weather down at 6:30am. Few waves around as well with a decent ENE swell rockin’ into Sydney at the moment. Bondi […]

The weekend’s north east swells continue to produce small but fun waves this morning. With this swell direction it’s bypassing Bondi and rockin’ into breaks such as the Bra. It’s a bit lumpy and not really lining up that well (morning sickness)… best surf somewhere with northern protection especially when the NE winds pick up […]

Pre-breakfast—–show-early one isn’t it? Swell has halved overnight, still leaving some fun ones with smooth surfaces. Loads of east origin in this swell, not best suiting Bondi, but a few sets over head high broke quite nicely in the south end (infrequent). I would head to a beach facing more east and surf early today […]

La Bondhi be pretty ugly this morning with rain, NE winds, and a confused ocean. Swell is coming from the east and waves are breaking around the 3-5 foot range. It’s a lil’ inconsistent at Bondi – probably due to the fact that it’s facing the wrong way…but there’s a few waves to be had. […]

Plenty of swell around the traps this morning. Looks like its going to get bigger this afternoon as well. Nuisance SE onshore winds were completely butchering it earlier today. With forecasted NE winds tomorrow, best wait until then… Today’s report comes from Manly, a beach normally best suited to blustery South East winds and a […]

South East wind is howling early this morning – pretty much mashin’ up anything surfable down at Bondee. Swell has come up as anticipated and still has quite a bit of east direction in it. Manly perhaps? Need something with serious protection from 20 knot onshores. It’s currently 3-4 foot and will increase to 5-6 […]
