WOW. Sorry about the late update – I have a good excuse this time…
A dead south ground swell has come up strong overnight, and is in full swing. Between 10am and 1pm it was pounding our coast hard. Bondi is completely useless with this size, as was most of the surrounding beaches…so a little drive was really the only option. So today’s pics come from a slabbin’ reef, which was insanely heavy around 11am. My call would be 6-8 foot solid sets. Really difficult getting a decent shot in the water (ok I muffed up) so my pics won’t best demonstrate what is actually happening out there. Took out a wide angle lens, and pretty much swam in circles for 2 hours – well – before a macdaddy set drove me into the reef giving me 5 stitches…note to self, use a longer lens when there’s plenty of water moving (on very shallow ledges).
It will halve by tonight and swing onshore for tomorrow (southerly change coming 2nite), but Wed should be fun and in more control.
Have a good day. 31 degrees out there and 10,000 people on Bondi beach bakin’ it up.
Adios, ugios (with a little chip in the scone)
