Meaty right hander

ground swell

It’s big and gettin’ bigger. By far the largest swell we’ve had here in months…and it’s NOT really surfable at Bondi. 6 foot + and closing out most of the bay. I saw a rogue set break so far out the back it was quite impressive – must of touched the 8 foot range. For people that like the technical data, this is a 178 degree, dead south ground swell with a 12 second period (that means plenty of grunt and its a ground swell!).

Not an easy decision this morning on what to do…drive outta town? Surf the local protected corners around here? Is the wind a bit too funky for it? Morning sickness? wonky? Yes, well 6 sms’s before 6am proves we’re all driving around in circles in the excitement of our new swell, but really, only a few select places will be working today. I’d say as the new swell settles, and drops to manageable levels, somewhere would be smokin’… Somewhere… But I know that Eastern suburbs beaches can’t handle this size.

My online surfboard ebay garage sale ends tomorrow – see all my preloved sticks going for a steal.

Ok, enough ramble. Enjoy, 28 degrees today and 30 tomorrow:: uge
