Spike

Hi there. Wow. Special morning. If you slept in you’d be kicking yourself as not only was it bakin’ hot and clear skies… that expected swell spike arrived and produced fun (not perfect) waves in the 2-3 foot vicinity. Ok, so it’s quite weak and fat due to a 7 sec wave period, but throw […]

swim

There’s not a lot doing down the beach this morning. Overcast skies dominated, the usual suspects scrapped over a 2 foot left towards the middle and the ‘dozer is out pushing sand up against the concrete wall to conceal any exposed concrete reo. Swell is from the ENE so I reckon the Bra might have […]

the wolf

For a small east swell there sure were plenty of waves on offer this morning. Bondi was only 2 foot, but decent. A left in the middle provided some fun ones all the way to the beach and a southern corner right had the odd section. With warm weather, no wind and plenty of sunshine […]

Onshore darkness

The onshores have turned on, making a mess of Bondi this morning. The odd 2 footer was on offer down there with very few out. Pretty wet and grey day. Some say this is Bondi at its best and the only time you’ll get a wave without 5 others on it. Caleb Reid, probably one […]

Insomniac

If the sweltering heat of last night didn’t keep you awake last night, the search party choppers sure did. 2 guys went for a swim last night, 1 split off and decided to swim ashore – then went home to return to the couch (without telling his buddy)…meanwhile, the lone swimmer called a full scale […]

Sizzle

The maximum temperature forecasted for today is 30 degrees…but it felt that hot at 6:30am this morning so maybe the Bureau boys have some broken dials. It is hot. Damn hot. You’ll break into a sweat just walking down the hill this morning…so a swim/longboard is the essential cool off. New swell direction today, NE. […]

Thursdee peaks

Cookin’ with gas out there today…even though quite a few crew said it’s not that great as they came out of the water (I’m still landlocked until stitches heal from my recent reef lobotomy – oh diddums I hear you say). This is the last day of this week’s strong south swell before switching to […]

Revert

Best be outside today – the southerlies have stopped. The weather is 25, mild, warm and just nice. The waves are 3-4 foot, dead south swell and a hell of a lot cleaner than yesterday with northerlie grooming breezes. To top it off the crowds are minimal out at Bondi and there are peaks all […]

transformation

That violent southerly change last night was something special. Spectacular. A sausage cloud rolled over from Tama bringing rain, lightning and a serious gale. Unfortunately it’s ruined the clean surfaces of yesterday and halved the swell to the 4-5 foot range. Bondi still wasn’t much fun and not handling the larger conditions – pass. Tomorrow […]
