4 degrees

Still hanging on the west coast of Australia, we’ve got another all-day-offshore-affair with 3 footers in the Perth metro. Down south would be smokin’ right now…but there are still plenty of uncrowded waves very close to the city. Take this little right hander for example…no one out when we pulled up at 7:30am. Every few […]

Boomtown

I’m currently in Perth. Now the Perth metro area isn’t famous for good waves. Not like Margaret River or up North. So when my old mate, Young Bull, called up to say its cranking in Perth, I gave him the ‘ok buddy – sure thing – whatever’ and headed down the beach thinking a nice […]

Repeat

Just like yesterday the waves continue to pump into Sydney. Smidge smaller today and quite a bit wonkier. 4-5 foot. That howling westerlie continues to blow offshore and snap freeze anything in its path – damn it was cold down the beach this morning. This week we’ve got waves every day and dropping for the […]

Tasty

Today is one of those days that’s going to be hard to concentrate on work. Looking at the walls of your cubicle, fiddling with your pen – do another lap of the office floor with that blank piece of paper… in the back of your head you know it’s clear skies outside, the sun is […]

shades of grey

Such a dark morning was kinda hard peeling yourself out of bed (let alone shoot any decent pics). When you got down to Bondi at 7am it was much smaller and weaker than yesterday. Guess this is because the swell direction has swung to East and better suiting joints like Maroubra. It is still more […]

3 Peaks

3 distinct peaks were working at Bondi this morning. Overnight it had dropped in size (now 2-3 foot), but its cleaner and lining quite nicely. Large pack of hungry wolves up for the early though, I’d say be patient, wait until everyone wonders off to work and yee shall score. Tomorrow should be very similar […]

happy dayz

Happy days down at Bondi this morning. I’d say there would be a few people late for work. The winds are perfectly offshore (W) and the swell has settled. 3-4 footers are on offer and the sunshine has decided to join the party. Nice little section on the left in the middle of Bondi. Good […]

duotone

4-5 footers fumbling into Bondi this morning around 7am. Fortunately that wintery southerly howl has subsided as well, allowing the waves to line up a bit better. Only 4 guys out…there is definitely some decent waves to be had. I would probably hunt north side as there is more options and probably cleaner (e.g. Manly). […]

meaty

Some meaty chunks rocking around Sydney at the moment. One of the biggest swells of 2008. Shame that the 8 foot sets at Bondi are flanked by a 20-30 knot southerly – making it a mess of things. Bondi to Maroubra has limited options, you’ll need decent protection from the southerly (e.g. Bronte or South […]
