Today is quite boring compared to yesterday. 3-4 foot closeouts down at Bondi on the low tide – I sat there for 1 hr and barely got a decent shot of anyone….but let’s talk about yesterday – how spectacular was that! You could see it was going to be a solid day from the morning – but man, I reckon I saw 10 foot + bomb sets smother the bay around 2-3 pm. Had no idea it was going to get that big. All thanks to the low hanging off Tassie…which generated such a salubrious ground swell. At high tide the waves even lapping up against the concrete boardwalk – not often you see that.
Bondi can’t handle swell that big – full stop. Handful of guys were surfing Ben Buckler, providing entertainment for crowds on the rocks. We often talk about getting a wave out the back of BB, and then connecting all the way to the beach – well – yesterday was the day…I saw plenty of dudes on Rhino chasers gettin’ 200m+ rides to the beach from out the back.
Enough froth…This swell will dissipate as fast as it arrived. I’d expect 2 footers down at Bondi by night fall…and then back to summery 1-2 foot range for a while.
It’s going to be 39 degrees on sat – ouch.
Obviously these shots are from yesterday not today – as today was lame :: uge
