The waves are small and weak this morning (1-2ft ENE). Not really worth surfing. Will get better tomorrow.  But the sun is shining and most of you are probably nursing a massive hangover anyway. Grab a towel and soak up the 28 degrees. 2007Hard to believe that another year passes by… This is the last […]

*endangered shark stuckSadly a 2.8 metre Grey Nurse Shark (critically endangered species and not known to be dangerous) got stuck in the protective nets off Bondi and didn’t survive. The net boys hauled the big mutha into the boat around 8:10am this morning after the fish was stuck for around 24 hrs. *smallerSwell backed right […]

Some good waves in our paddocks this morning. It’s clean as the southerlies have subsided overnight, but it’s still got some morning sickness…and a bit wobbly. Bondi had waves around 4 feet but it was closing out. Definitely have a hunt around and you’ll find something breaking a lot better. In fact it’s improving as […]

*blowStrong southerlies are still in force this morning whipping up the swell but creating very random, bumpy conditions down at Bondi at 7am. It’s sizable, approximately over head high on sets, but I would say when this wind dies it will improve ten-fold. Tomorrow it should swing NE, and the swell will only drop a […]

*sharky onshore The southerly shattered the good waves of the weekend. Some smoookin’ waves Friday/Saturday and early Sunday. These pics from yesterday’s session out of town – surfer: the lightning fast aerial king Kirk Flintoff. Currently we have a heavy onshore/1-2 foot combo. Ain’t pretty. I guess the fact that only 1 guy was out […]

*early xmas If you’re not stuck at a Christmas-lunch-booze-athon…might be a good idea to go for a little surf. It’s good. And it’s about time. 10 second period, 4-5 foot, sunny, currently light NE winds – yes kids Christmas has come early. And it’s going to be good all weekend but the peak of the […]

~sleep inSlept in today and worked out quite well. Heard at sunrise the waves were dribbly onshore 2ft. Well by the time I got to it at 9am Bondi was starting to shape up – 4 foot, onshore and a little junky but still more than rideable (4 guys out!). The approaching 11:15am high tide […]

*Mush.I’m running out of words to describe 2 foot onshore mush. The chewed up SE windswell ain’t too pretty down at Bondi this morning. Dozen or so hardcore punks scrappin’ for anything moving. Best wait until this wind swings (which is Sat). Friday morning looks like decent size but onshore. Also looks like a good […]

*winterflashbacksAs we settle in for a week of winter flashbacks, the persistent onshores continue to degrade the 3-foot waves we’ve currently got down at Bondi. Bondi actually ain’t too bad with a SSE winds/SE swell combo. It’s rideable all right. Can do turns. No crowds. But it ain’t that pretty and breaking quite random (not […]
