Yesterday’s booming swells have relaxed into well formed 4-5 foot, clean, highly surfable waves. The winds are now a favourable NW swinging NE later. The swell is still from the SSE. The midday high tide at 1.93 metres (huge) is going to hide most of the goodness for a while. Always telling when there is a big moon the night before.
Bondi was 4-5 foot and breaking relatively straight at sunrise. Bad option kids. Hit the road, so many breaks would have been cranking earlier today before the high tide. Swell is dropping and will be around 3 foot by nightfall. We surfed a slabbin’ right somewhere close to Sydney (not revealing). Oh my, what a morning, that is until Big man Gezza Blake got a loose board stuck in his head and we had to go to emergency for stitches.
