Pretty grim on the surf front. November is a good month to go overseas. Write that down for next year. We’ve barely had a wave for 4 weeks and a few of the man grommets are getting a bit twitchy (annoying). Hawaii is where you want to be today at Pipe turns on for the […]

After last night’s swell increase to 3 foot you would have woken up this morning excited about the possibility of a decent wave. Well..its bigger, 2 foot, sometimes 3, but a interrupting slight onshore and 6:12am low tide made it shut down at Bondi. Perhaps on a fuller tide you might have something more rideable. […]

Quite surprised to see something resembling a little waist high rideable wave this morning. At 5am it was pouring, by 6:30am it was clearing and the surface quality was immaculate glass. Shame it wasn’t bigger. Quite sucky on a southern end bank (hence shot 1 pipe). High tide today is around midday, low tide around […]

miss bondi 2007 First up I linked to the wrong miss bondi photos yesterday. So here are the right ones (heat 2 not heat 1). Sorry. 2feet We just can’t seem to break out of the 2 foot mould at the moment. Well today is 1-2 foot and onshore sloppiness. Swell origin is from the […]

*kranky Surfing shouldn’t be too high on the agenda today. 1-2 foot weak dribbling bits are breaking down at Bondi. Swell origin looks to be ENE and there’s a slight onshore agitator early. Sunshine peeping through now and its going to be 24 degrees. Not much else to say really…other than we’re so overdue for […]

fizzerBit of a fizzer this new swell. Charts said it was going to be bigger. Winds are howling 20 knots from the south interrupting a chance of quality waves early today. Swell should pick up and come from the SE later today. Bondi’s southern pocket had 2 footers with the odd set hedging 3 foot. […]

Damn flat spell continues as the new swell shys away from us. The well anticipated small NE swell is now coming tonight (not today) – we hope. Come on…it’s about time. This morning’s high tide (6:45am) engulfed any sort of a wave so far, as the low tide approaches (1pm) you may see a 2 […]

Its pancakes once again but fortunately we’re at the end of this flat spell. What is unsurfable right now should slightly pick up this afternoon to see a remotely surfable wave hitting 2 foot. Tomorrow if all goes to plan we’ll score 3 foot and it will hang around until Sunday. The new swell is […]

grasshoppersThe waves today are smoookin’ – that’s if you’re knee high to a grass hopper, think girls are rank and haven’t got a drivers licence yet. 3 lil’ groms hacked the 1 foot shorey this morning down at Bondi – quite entertaining really. All 3 foot/30 kilo of them can generate a fair bit of […]

*chugSmall 1-2 foot wave chuggin’ into the south end of Bondi at 6:30am. There’s no power nor shape to it today. Thick overhead morning clouds have cleared by the time I wrote this, and you’re looking at a mighty fine 25 degree maximum. Currently we have SW winds at 8/13 knots which will kick around […]

Pray for swellIt hasn’t been pumping in quite some time now – we’re so overdue. Today the swell has kicked up a notch with waves mostly around the 2 foot mark, its peaky, shifty, and a short period wind swell (average). The charts say the swell period jumps from 5.7 to 9.3 seconds this morning […]

bush nookieSaw a young couple going for gold in the bushes at sunrise this morning…aaaah yes, summer really is here in Bondi. Nothing like a bit of bush scratchin’ after a big Tuesday night at the Bondi hotel with a ‘new’ inebriated friend. Backpacker heaven has arrived to good old summer party town Bondi. Even […]

goeastThe fruits of the weekend’s east-nor-east swell has faded but not evaporated. (Big words for a Monday I know.) 3 footers are now 1-2 footers, especially at south facing Bondeye. It’s clean and sunny, and much better at an east facing beach. Perfect way to start your week. 24 degrees max on the land, 20 […]

uglySydney surf conditions have been hit with the ugly stick this week. A small pack of grizzly surfers hit Bondi this morning in an attempt to achieve their minimum wave quota. The agitated ocean is still pushing 2-3 footers into the southern corner, but its hell bumpy and random. ¬†East/South East winds managing to interrupt […]

same::sameThis weather is getting pretty lame. It’s raining, onshore and only hitting 3 feet of sloppiness (for the 4th day in a row). Surely you’ve got better things to do than surf today. Showing you 5 shots of greyness probably won’t fry your burger so here are some little gems from the other side of […]

They tell me the longer this wind blows the better the surf will be when it cleans up. It’s been blowing all week…and Bondi has been junkie as hell. Scrappy 3 footers in the northern end is the pick of spots, the south end is just one big washing machine. SE winds 18 knots, South […]

Master O’ReillyDoubt anyone’s too interested in surfing today. Well because A) its smashing onshore b) its Melbourne cup day. Yes punters, it’s your big day to scam off work and booze it up all arvo after celebrating your winnings on MASTER O’REILLY (11) – that’s my tip for the day. So bail the computer and […]

bigblowIt’s howling… The kind of blow when you see those Sulo bins guts-up spewing all over the road, when the TV reception don’t work so good as your antenna is doing 360s on the roof, when the little ladies running down the street have their umbrellas inside out… 30 knots of southerly brought rain, cooler […]

Winds swinging NE today…new east swell tomorrow. underwater peopleWe all love the ocean even […]
