Robin Austin, finding some open face


The overnight south change has put out the fire of yesterday’s soaring temperatures (thankfully). How about that heat yesterday. Madness. Cooking. Like standing in an oven. There would have been a whole lotta sweaty, thirsty, frocked up Melbourne cup punters with massive-dehydrated hangovers today.

Drink water. Plenty.

With the cooling south change came wind and wind-waves. Bondi was 2-3 foot this morning – bit skanky and random – but surfable. Fair crowd out there already.

After inspecting the charts, I can safely say there is going to be waves for the next 5 days all falling in the 3-4 foot range (from the south). The problem is the wind, which looks to be mostly onshore. Saturday looks 3 feet and potentially north-offshores for the Single Fin Classic down at Bondi (good).
