Got in the drink to shoot Bondi at a dismal 1 foot when I realized the swell is coming from the east and I’m at the wrong beach. South facing Bondi struggled as east facing beaches would be double the size. It will get bigger as the day progresses, and we’re in for a weekend of good surf in the 3 to 4 foot range (exclusive to east facing beaches). Offshore Sat/Sunday as well. The wave period jumps from 5 seconds to 10 seconds today. So the goods are on their way. High tide 3:40pm, low tide 9:30am, first light at 6:10am. Some say I make the waves look better than they actually are…yes, of course – today’s a great example. No one wants to see an ugly photo of Britney Spears do we now.
The Aquabumps gallery is open all weekend 10am to 4pm. Plenty of new images plus a new shadowbox series with floating mounts. If you don’t know what that means…we reckon they’re good and worth checking out. 98 Brighton Boulevard, North Bondi. Walk along the beach towards the north, fang past North Bondi Italian and RSL, up the stairs, fang right again 50 metres…it’s the white cave full of pics across the street next door to the 3 egg heads cafe… (good coffee). Here is a map —-> have a great weekend.
