Something cooked up last night…Bondi had head high sets. She’s dropped a couple of notches overnight though…there are still rideable peaks down Bondi this morning early (chest high). Winds – offshore NW. Damn nice day with sunshine (max 28) and chilly 19 degree water. Swell looks like it’s from the east and it’s not a […]

Sometimes things don’t work out. Oh no no…it’s me not you. Sometimes the wind is just all wrong. Like today. Onshore SE 15 – 20 knots. And sometimes the swell is nothing but knee high wind slop. You couldn’t paddle onto it even if you tried. So surely you’ve got a lot of work to […]

No you don’t have to have your eyes checked – these pics have been “chumped & dumped”. In a cheap attempt to dazzle you with some nifty photoshop tricks, ‘ve tried to convert this mornings grey flat images into something of interest. Yesterday’s south swell has been blown out by the overnight NE’ster. South facing […]

Black is back baby. Under a blanket of morning cloud we’ve got surfable but messy waves down at Bondi. Yesterday’s cooling weak south change brought some new wind swell, but the early direct onshore easterlies weren’t let much quality come through. You’d score waves up to head height with the majority smaller. Ok is more […]

Aahhh yes…what a weekend. A brief interlude into summer. Saturday was cookin’ with 30+ degrees, clear skies, small NE swell and only 30,000 people on Bondi beach (no exaggeration). Dang. Summer in Bondi – nothing like the buzz of turbo charged Hyundais bakin’ it up Campbell Parade (ok dumpin’ it around the block 20 times). […]

Its going to be a sizzlin’ dirty thirty today – best get yourself down the beach for a dip. Water temp still 19, high tide 8am, low 2pm, Moderate to fresh NNW winds, virtually […]

Yeah check that date above. Thursday. This isn’t yesterdays report running late. It’s the early bird so you can get back on your chair now. I was quite surprised to see a little shorey chunk this morning down at Bondi. It’s only around waist high… the odd set pumped up with a backwash booster. It […]

1st light is seeping into town real early now. Like 5:15am. Half of Sydney is getting up for bit of morning activity…if you were a tourist down at Bondi this morning you’d thought Sydneysiders are all mental. If you peeled yourself outta bed this morning for a wave you’d be disappointed as yesterdays swell was […]

I don’t remember the weather being this good in September last year. 30 fat ones today. It’s just like the peak of summer. Bondi has been blessed with pockets of joy lately… Sunday was all time…yesterday arvo was pretty special…today it tries to continues with chest to head high sets rockin’ in. Conditions should improve […]
