FAT

Full as a boot out there today. 1.8 metres of fat at 7am high tide. Swell has hung in there with waves breaking 3-4 foot, but they’re all porked up. I would wait for the low tide. Slight onshore winds now, currently Easterly, but later 5-10 knots of North Easterly forecasted. Don’t expect much on […]

Beasterly

I had high hopes for this morning after surfing big Bondi last night. It actually was quite solid on dark, and not 100% closeouts if you can believe it. The swell has dropped back a gear within the 3-5 foot range, but the nemesis east wind was in early, ruffling any decent bumps out there. […]

Sections

Swell has come up alright, but the onshore winds are still blowing. What a difference 24 hours makes…yesterday you’d struggle to surf a wave above your knee caps, and today you’ll score a chunky 4 footer out at South Bondi. The quality isn’t there though – lumpy, bumpy and sectiony…nonetheless – there are waves and […]

BANG

Hope you got up early this morning…as of 8:40am a violet south change hit with a BANG. What this means is: The change brings cooler temperatures for Sydney after a sweltering hot night – did anyone sleep last night? The early 1-1.5 footers of the early have been butchered into 30cm wind chop All this […]

Mondayitis

I prefer good waves mid week than on the weekend. The fruits of working across the road from Bondi and surfing when you’re all at work. Well, you all know Saturday was pumping (everywhere) and Sunday had decent waves at North East exposed beaches, well today is dropped right back and Bondi was a semi-surfable […]

Back in the ‘hood

So we’re back in Bondi and the waves are far from impressive. Onshore 3 foot mush. Not a bad sunrise to make up for it… Hard to concentrate on work knowing that the waves up at Gold Coast are pumpin’, yep, just as I left the land of the high rise. Can’t get it on […]

Burleigh

The waves are so much better up here. It’s no wonder it’s a world champion breeding grounds. Finally the swell kicked up and most places had waves. Burleigh had some great 3 footers, barrels, speedy sections….super long rides…if there wasn’t 50 pros warming up for the 4 star WQS Breaka Pro I’d be out there […]

HELIsurf

Some neat little waves on offer this morning up here at the Goldie. Exposed beaches like D’Bah had the odd 3 footer…but wow…thick crowds just like Bondi, just not so many L-Platers. Looks like everyone is limbering up for World tour stop No.1 – the Quiky Pro. Swell comes up today in QLD, and tomorrow […]

The Sand Pipe

Finally some waves up here on the Gold Coast…ripper. The constant onshores subsided and some nice clean 2-3 footers at a small beach near Tweed. The place is overrun with pros in anticipation for the Roxy Pro/Quiky Pro that starts on the 27th Feb. (World tour stop No.1) From all reports Sydney was smoking yesterday, […]
