A monster tearing up the bay. Thick.

Friday the 13th

The swell has come up and surpassed all of our expectations – it’s huge! Seeing it’s coming from the dead south Bondi is wearing the full brunt of this new ground swell. I saw sets up in the 8-9 foot range closing out the whole bay. Quite exciting really. I love how big waves stop everyone in their tracks…cars pull over, jaws drops, cameras firing as monsters roll into Bondi.

No one out and I don’t suggest surfing unless a) your name is Raimana and you grew up at Teahupoo b) have a ski, cause you probably won’t even make it into the line-up seeing it’s breaking all over the place. Somewhere outside of the eastern suburbs is going off right now…

Tomorrow on the other hand is a different story as this swell is only in town for 24hrs and should return to 3-4 foot manageable surf tomorrow.

Fine weather all weekend, come see the Aquabumps gallery if you’re sick of looking at these little web optimised small pics and want to see them blown up large and framed. You’ll find us at 151 Curlewis Street, Bondi beach (right behind the old Bondi Hotel just up from Thai Terrific). Still lost? We’re open all weekend 10am to 6pm.

Water is cold today, good thing Jules at Surfection Mosman is having another wetsuit sale this week.

How about forwarding this onto a buddy? Check out our Facebook Page? See the lastest article on Aquabumps in Digital Mag?

The boys, no one keen.
