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 […]

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 […]
