The beach was packed yesterday…barely a scrap of sand spare… At 3pm yesterday thick clouds crawled across Bondi’s summery beachscape. Within minutes of the first thunder clap we had howling onshores and the beach was cleared in minutes.
I was quite surprised to see clean conditions and the odd 2-3 footer this morning. It’s a south swell with a period of 6.3 seconds which in English means ‘weak wind waves’. Winds are currently SW offshore and will swing onshore SE at 20-25 knots later today (that’s strong like last night).
Waves should pick up over the weekend (from the south) but the winds are forecasted SE for most, but not as strong as this afternoon. Bondi should have a few 3-4 footers and stay out of the breeze.
