Psycho

It’s going to be an interesting day weatherwise… Started off cool and overcast, currently 28 degrees. Then later today it will cook to 36 degrees. Thirty sixer. Tonight a south change will rip through dropping the temps back to 22 for tomorrow. All over the place. Psycho weather. Good for a swim after work though. […]

There was a tiny wave in the southern corner of Bondi this morning. It was breaking close to the beach and the rides were very weak and short. If you were patient enough you might have one break near your chest, but I wouldn’t think that was too often. A blanket of thick clouds cover […]

Today is not a surf day full stop. Onshore mush, grey and rainy with no swell. Sunday afternoon and Monday are looking like the next promising days. Until then perhaps watch the stock market spasms, de-wax boards ready for warmer water or watch the new taylor steele surf flick (stranger than fiction) Today’s shots are […]

Mighty fine morning down the beach today. Spectacular cloud formations as we heat up to a perfect 28 degrees. The firing swell from Friday to Sunday has evaporated and a tiny NE wind swell is evident at our beaches. Bondi was close to flat, best head down to The Bra or go for a swim […]

waves

Well that’s something we haven’t seen in a while – waves. Good ones. Bondi was a playful 3-4 foot this morning and the rain has even stopped. Good time to go for a paddle seeing it’s blowing offshore and the crowds are low. In fact all weekend should be pretty decent so I would head […]

Clearing

After two days of persistent rain, it’s stopped. Alleluia. The onshore winds have also backed off and the ocean is starting to clean itself up. Bondi was still a very messy 4-5 foot, 3 guys out. I would say wait a day or so, and it should improve (but be smaller). Cold day again today, […]

Dreaming

It’s been a while since the surf has been pumping. This time of year just doesn’t seem to crank. Today’s surf check was disappointing but predictable – hell onshore, super mushy, pouring rain – the sort of rain that is horizontal and no one around. Its winter. The swell did kick up…to 3-4 foot…but the […]

The sloppy foam balls got bigger overnight, from 1 foot to 2 foot. You’d have to be pretty keen to get out there on such an ugly morning. A wintery day with onshore SE winds, grey skies and a maximum temperature of 18. Expect some rain and a increase in swell tonight. Tomorrow should be […]

Yesterday

Yesterday was a much better day than today. At least there were a few waves, the sun was shining and the perfect offshores created the ultimate beach weather. A south change rocked in last night bringing clouds, onshore winds and turning the waves into mush. 1ft dribbly mush. Yesterday was a big day down at […]
