*thirtyThose recent good waves have faded a notch overnight. I went for a swim at lunch and this is what I saw at South Bondi…bright green clear water, sunshine, 1-2 foot waves, crowded and a big fat 30 degrees (how’s work peeps?). Joy beach day…water subtly cooler – but still very inviting. Clouds are starting […]

It’s no secret that Bondi was pretty damn good Bondi last night. Hundreds packed peaks along south Bondi – all 500 metres of it. Shallow bank in the south has been putting on a good show for a couple of weeks now. Well it’s still on today, half the size of last night – but […]

glassWhat began as a grey, humid, glassy morning with few surfers in the water has evolved into a 29 degree, sunny, cracker of a day. The waves have switched on…quite unpredictable at the moment with a swell increase last night. 3 foot glassy peaks along Bondi at the moment. Good rights in the south end […]

halfLotta sad faces around Bondi today as yesterday’s joy fades into a distant memory. So many places firing yesterday – hell – fat tubes at Bondi on the corner bank?!#@ Today’s half the size’‘n’half as clean with half as many out. 2 foot weak fat bits broke in the south earlier (8am). Maybe a lower […]

Quite an eventful morning. BREAKING NEWS: Not only is it 6 foot with larger bomb sets, a dead body has been spotted floating off the south end of Bondi. Unconfirmed reports say it was a surfer, with leg rope and board attached – could have been early morning surfer or last night’s sess. Police choppers, […]

big is not always best The howling southerly winds have subsided this morning, making for surfable conditions early down at Bondi. Swell dramatically increased yesterday afternoon…so now it’s up around 4-6 foot range. So it’s big, quite solid…but it ain’t pretty. Bondi was very random, bumpy, peaky and not really holding up that great. The […]

You don’t have to be too cluey to work out the waves aren’t so great this morning. The overnight south change brought rain, wind and 2 foot slop. Bugger. The good news is that the 30 knots of howl is creating swell. This afternoon it will dramatically increase in size. Tomorrow is still onshore, but […]

chewedThe waves are all chewed up from this onshore wind – but at least there are waves around – 3 foot. Only a few guys out catching little froth balls – they don’t look like they’re enjoying themselves a great deal. This onshore should swing tomorrow afternoon. So best wait until it cleans itself up.
