Ah yes…crisp Autumn air, clear skies and a bakin’ sunrise over Ben Buckler. Not bad for a Monday morning. Shame about the waves/ripples. Beggin’ to break above your knee caps at the moment. The waves today are best suited to a 12 foot plank, 1 foot toddler/midget or if it’s your 1st day that you’ve […]

Swell is up kids, but she’s bumpy as hell. Bondi has squeezed the most out of this small south-east swell  (chest to head high sets at 7am today) but mostly closing out of just random froth. Tomorrow morning should be cleaner with Westerlies predicted but will be a tad smaller. Nothing that great to report […]

We got the first tap on the shoulder from winter today…brrr…that chill in the morning air is starting to hold back the before work crowds. The days are getting much shorter, it was pretty dark until 7am. Bondi is reaping the benefits of being a south facing swell magnet this morning as set waves got […]

After last night’s stormy conditions it has resurrected itself into a sensational day with a maximum of 26 degrees. No waves to write about – well knee to waist high mostly. And nothing much happening tomorrow either, but Friday should see a new south swell and Saturday should be a bit of fun. Better off […]

knee-capperYesterdays little bump has dissipated and waves are now struggling to hit the knee caps. Still a few people out there optimistically searching the horizon for anything that resembles moving water. Such spectacular light’n’sunrise this morning – the view to Ben Buckler changed about 5 times before 7:30am. wet eggs Tomorrow doesn’t look any better […]

burnt orangeThis micro ENE swell is neglecting beaches like Bondi which are currently 1 foot. At exposed beaches (La Bra) you’d find 2 feet…but the 6:45am high tide was putting some chub into these struggling conditions – towards the lower tide you may have some more options. Great conditions with a baking summers day and […]

big fat highWe’re bang in  the middle of a big fat high pressure system. Good weather prevails, but the swell is laying dormant for another week. 1 foot, super clean and a tad chillier than last week. Work hard you’re not missing anything. the mad board collectorI haven’t seen a mate of mine Damo for […]

This east-swell/perfect weather phase continues today. Its currently tiny at Bondi, but would be much better at places that face the right way. (La Bra) Unfortunately there are no good swell prospects for quite some time now – so you’ll need to seek alternative entertainment; shopping with the little lady, de-waxing crusty skank of those […]

*InsomniacThese hot nights make for a crappy night’s sleep – hence I was up for the early. Looking at most eastern suburbs beaches pre-dawn, I didn’t find much. Maroubra had a little weak 2 foot wave, nice and clean and glassy, Bondi was 1 foot dormant and good for beginners…swell is from the ENE, so […]

[email protected] East swell magnets will show a little bump today, approximately 2 foot with the odd 3 foot set. Perfect conditions with salubrious warm weather (max 27) and glassy conditions. Taj Burrow, runner-up to the 2007 ASP world title, is in Sydney on route to Bells which starts next week. Bells is the 2nd world […]

That brief interlude with a late south ground swell last night was short lived. Swell direction switched to NE overnight and is now only dribbling into the bays – not really worth surfing, however there is always someone surfing at Bondi – and yes here are the only 4 waves of the day. Swell should […]

*toxicAfter a weekend of zero waves, we start a new week with…yep, very small unsurfable waves but how good is this weather? (26) Something freaky happening later today, a 15 second straight southerly ground swell will appear creating 3 foot fun before fading into tomorrow. 15 seconds kids is a massive interval…but at 1:20pm nothing […]

Sorry about the late update. 1pm Friday, you’re probably sliding into a bludging afternoon of searching google earth for new surf breaks anyway. Well there isn’t a great deal to report – onshore, small, and much smaller than when I shot at 7am this morning. Oh and the weekend doesn’t look to flash either – […]

What a nice little surprise to see clean head high waves this morning. SE swell is producing the goods so I’d be thinking about getting out there. Winds are offshore NE at Bondi, but will howl 15 – 20 knots later today (still NE). 8am high tide, 2:45pm low tide. Deluxe 27 degrees and now […]

*onshore I love these 2-3 foot onshore Bondi days. Barely anyone out and hackable lefts in the corner. Winds will increase later today – making a mess of things – so now is good. Last two days have been cooking (especially in the northern corner of Bondeye – shows over now though)…Tomorrow 8.0 sec SE […]

goldieDays like these can be quite tormenting. Today is pretty much a perfect day to do anything – perfect temp (26), no wind, no clouds…but what about the couple of metres of 10 second SE swell hitting Sydney at the moment. Bondi is 4-5 foot, glassy, closing out in the south but surprisingly good (and […]

chunkCurrently we’ve got a big south-east swell hitting Sydney – and its full of gas. Waves at Bondi were up around 6 foot with a couple of bomb sets. But there was no quality to be had, the ocean is still unsettled from the weekends southerlies. No one out in the southern corner, couple in […]
