swim

After yesterday’s leap in swell size from 1 foot to 3 foot I’d thought there would be some decent waves this morning. Unfortunately its disappeared as fast as it appeared. The swell origin is dead south, so Bronte, The Bra etc would be watching it march on by to south facing beaches. Bondi was 2 […]

Step up

Little bit more bump in the swell today. Say a small man’s foot up on yesterday. The swell charts are calling it a 13 second swell period – wow – it’s probably from all that thumpin’ swell down in Victoria. That all translates to 2 footers, long waits, lacking push and big early morning crowds […]

Bakin’ pancakes

If a one liner was needed to sum up today it will be ‘bakin’ pancakes’. Oh my, it’s such a nice day outside (23), if only there were waves. Bondi had a wave-starved pack in the corner scrappin’ over sub-1-footers (clean). Meanwhile back on the beach hundreds broke out into their morning rituals…bit of Tai […]

Lake Bondi

It’s been pretty flat for some time now… sigh…Can’t even remember the last decent wave. Next south swell is Monday. This huge mutha high pressure system sure ain’t going anywhere fast. ‘least the good weather marathon continues and we’re looking at a nice 21 degrees today. Instead of showing you 5 images of Lake Bondi, […]

Gale

Gale force WNW winds are ripping through Sydney decimating the micro swell. Bondi was 1 foot, and as always, 3 guys out. Nothing happening over the next few days, not unless you’re a windsurfer….howling for dayz. Best go do some work. Taste Orange @ Bondi where the country meets the coast Wineries, producers, artists and […]

balmy bondi

A bit like Britney Spears, I’m confused when getting dressed in the morning. Dress warm for winter? Shorts? It was filthy warm this morning – 21 degrees at 7am in fact – incredible for winter. Out west they’re going to hit 27 degrees today. There is no confusion about the surf. Half a foot to […]

Basking in the sun

Tough day to do the schlep into town and then sit in that cubicle… no waves but a mighty fine day out there. Magical 25 degrees, and the wind is going to blow 20 knots of NW. Will be still cold in the shade. Be sure to get some outdoor time at some stage. I […]

Bondi Shine

Probably the flattest day of the week today. You’ll struggle to get moving on those knee cappers out there. Even with a big chunk of fibreglass..yep…you’d have to be a highly motivated person to go surfing today…swim will wash the cobwebs off and advisable with the great weather. Insane morning light today. At 6:10am strong […]

Running on empty

Yesterday’s one-hit-wonder-swell has ran out of gas. Bondi is probably the only place breaking this morning as it picks up all the fruits of a small south swell. In saying that, it’s only 1-2 foot, so nothing to get that excited about unless you weigh under 40 kilograms. I’d expect it to be pretty flat […]
