how you like ya burgers? Ok. So there isn’t much happening at Bondi this morning. Not unless 1 foot knee cappers fry your burger. Swell direction switched today and is now coming from the NE. Head to a beach exposed to that direction and you’ll stumble across 2-3 footers (Bra, Av, Whale blah). It looks […]

endless summer.Not much to whinge about with glorious weather like this. Maybe we’re just skipping winter? Not a damn cloud in the sky as we cook up to a salubrious twenty-4 degrees today. Northerly winds today typical of a day with good weather. Would you believe there is still a 2 foot dribble in the […]

stealth.Not bad waves for a flat spell huh? The charts have been calling pancakes for the past 7 days… but I’ve surprisingly found stealth two footers for most of it. Today the south end of Bondi had the odd head high set if you waited 30 minutes. Great conditions with little wind and a full […]

dolphin circus.I’ve been shooting Bondi for a good part of 8 years now. No medal please. But how unlucky is this… 15 minutes after I finished shooting yesterday a huge school of fish (large Salmon) rocked into the bay. I’ve seen aerial shots of the school – I am talking a pack 40 metres wide […]

oasis.Well what do you know… Stumbled across a little oasis in the middle of the desert. 3 foot sets this morning amongst a week of flatness. It was lining up nicely at 7am. Some too straight. Some ran down the shallow bank just right. Not many crew braving the frosty morning. That dash across the […]

brrrr.As winter ticks over another notch into the chill zone, the water remains remarkably warm at twenty-1. Good for an invigorating morning dip, but surfing is just out of the question. Pancake heaven. She’s flat as. And yes there were still two surfers scrapping for an ankle biter. The charts show a little bump hittin’ […]

busted buoys.Surely there is something wrong with those lil’ out-to-sea swell bouys. ‘Cause when I’m looking at them this morning it was giving me nuttin’ but 6 days of flat-to-micro. Ah-huh. ah, tomorrow afternoon a small south swell will poke its head out…(2-3 foot if we’re lucky)…but it will evapourate 12 hours later. Blink and […]
