In the shadows of yesterday’s joy, today seems a bit av. The current ENE swell dropped a couple of gears overnight, Bondi was pretty micro at waist high, but that faces the wrong way, something exposed to the source will show chest high sets, but it’s not as consistent as yesterday. Don’t get bummed as […]

easterly puppiesEveryone’s busy talking about last night’s late sessions where the current ENE swell kicked up coinciding with one of the first days of day light saving – only 200 guys out as a result. Well…the swell is still here this morning…and maybe even a tad bigger. Combined with a sunny maximum of 25 degrees […]

localLittle locally generated wind swells popping up around the place at the moment. Kinda hard to tell what’s going to happen next. Today we’ve got some small waves down at Bondi around chest high on sets that look fun. Its clean with northerlies (NW) and a whopping 31 degrees – the icy on this beach […]

bedhead These grey mornings don’t make it easy to get out of bed. At 7am I was watching Bondi spit out the odd 3 foot leftie worthy of a hack. A remarkably small crowd for probably the best day of the week so far…definitely the coolest with max of 20 degrees forecast. I like it. […]

batteredBit of a non-event down at Bondi surfwise. Wind battered 2 foot dribbles poked up every now and then in the southern corner, it seemed everyone else was running, boxing, swimming or walking the dog. A geeky German backpacker came into the gallery briefly yesterday and said "yoo aussseees are exerciiiiiize fanatics, and you like […]

summer It’s another glorious sunny day as it cooks to 30 degrees. Aaaaah yes, you know its summer in Bondi when 2 booze hags are passed out cold on the sand after a random snog at the Bondi hotel…or maybe the fact that the bus queues on Campbell parade resemble a small police riot…or maybe […]

cubiclesSo you’re thinking about going for a surf. Good move. Its small, like 2-3 foot and only going to get better as the tide kicks in. One small problem. You’re stuck in a little office cubicle getting creepy on face*book (wal) and you just can’t bust out this early. Well, to rub it in, it’s […]

the planOk so our little plan nearly came together today. Yesterday’s turbulent southerlies have subsided, sunshine has returned, and yes, the swell has come up around the 4-5 foot solid mark. Yet the ocean remains agitated producing wonky, random chunks that mainly close out. Patience may pay today, as a little more water closer to […]
