dozer dribbles

It’s a bit like checking your shares…disappointing. That swell we had yesterday has been knocked around by the howling northerlies, leaving dribbles this morning. Bondi had micro 1-2 footers with absolutely no push. Pack of hungry mal riders in the middle having some fun. That dreaded ‘Dozer is back on the beach straightening the beach […]

busy

It a very busy time of year for most people. Christmas is coming and everybody wants everything finished before Christmas. But there is one thing you should try and squeeze into your busy today… that’s some time down the beach. Not only is it a stunning beach day, sunny and 24 degrees, but there are […]

Supply

A fresh supply of sou-easterly swell is consistently pumping into Sydney’s beaches today. Waves at Bondi were a decent 4-5 foot, but the flanking ESE onshore was making its presence felt. Bondi had the odd random wave but the banks weren’t really handling the size. I’d suggested a protected reef break…maybe something out of town…it […]

Cross-shore-chunks

Plenty of swell around… but the annoying sou-sou-easterly was disrupting our chances of decent waves. Bondi was blown out and of no use. Bronte had a small wave in the corner 3-4 foot, being slightly protected, I but didn’t really rate it either. Manly perhaps? That’s if the south swell isn’t marching right past their […]

Volatile

The weather has been so volatile lately, you just don’t know what to expect. The weekend’s easterly swell has dissipated and now we have a brand spankin’ new south swell – with plenty of grunt. At sunrise it was only 4-5 foot, the last time I checked it around lunch it was 6 foot plus. […]

fools gold

With all this swell around somewhere has got to be going off. A brief drive thru the eastern suburbs beaches proved fruitless – fools gold. This decent NE swell is completely missing Bondi and streaming into Bronte and Tama – but the high tide is killing it – fatness everywhere and many closing out. Didn’t […]

dark

You should really think about surfing today. At sunrise (well, I think there was a sunrise behind all that cloud), the waves were bumpy but 4-5 foot. Since then the waves have cleaned right up and with NW predicted this afternoon, it looks…good. Hit a NE exposed spot (not Bondi). SDS opening last night SDS […]

the wet northerlies

The start of a new NE swell has arrived. And so has the rain. Bondi had a wonky waist high wave, not really doing much. The wintery weather was quite off-puttin’ – barely anyone out. Other beaches looked average as well. Swell is due to increase today, hittin’ the 3-4 foot heavens at exposed NE […]

corner peaks

There is a little wave in the southern corner of Bondi this morning (2 foot, odd one slightly larger). The south swell has dropped after a pretty decent session on dark last night. Winds have started to blow 15 knots from the NE and the clouds will increase their presence. Tomorrow a new NE swell […]
