The chunky swells of April are now a distant memory as we continue to endure this small spell in May. Every 15 minutes or so a wave would break at Bondi in the south, best suited to a lengthy mal or fat fish – but it ain’t that great. You’d have to be really keen – especially since that howling SW wind is carrying a serious chill with it. Only max of 20 degrees today, water warmer 22, high tide 5:30pm, low tide 11am. You can see swell on the horizon – it’s just not interested in Sydney.

Tahiti’s suffering from the same lack of swell over the past few days as the top 45 surfers in the world scratch around with not much to do. It’s all going to change tomorrow as a swell is due to hit and probably see the 1st day of competition for the Billabong Pro at the almighty Teahupoo. Not a bad place to be right now…let’s go.
