Cirrus

The clouds stole the show this morning… Wow, what an amazing winter’s morning. At 6 a.m. I woke with pink hues pasted on the side of my face – it’s orrrrn! 2 seconds later I made the mad scrambled down the lift in jocks, double parked with lenses rolling around at my feet. I only […]

Surfing should be a really low priority for you today, as the week of flatness continues. The wind has icy claws and is currently blowing 20-30 knots (strong). Put the boards away until the weekend. I hung around Bronte pool this morning and watched all the locals performing their morning rituals, some swimming, some just […]

15.6

Like most of this week there isn’t a great deal going down at the moment. Today is probably even smaller and straighter that yesterday. Until the weekend you won’t be surfing a great deal…nice morning though. Go for a walk or join the polar bears in a swim. It’s 15.6 degrees in the Icebergs pool. […]

The sabbatical

I bet you didn’t think there was going to be waves this morning after checking the swell charts last night. Well, there is. Small ones from time to time dribbling into the bay (2 footers). Now I’m not saying its pumping nor should you drop your pencils and dash out the office…but if you find […]

The unexpected

I didn’t quite know what to expect down the beach this morning. I was leaning more to the pessimistic side as I couldn’t see much water moving from my bedroom window at 6:20am. After spending 5 mins on the cold sand, Jono (one of the regulars) took off, pulled into a snug barrel, flew out […]

soak

Ah yes….just one of those dayz…. The ocean is on idle whilst the sun is on overdrive. A sun soaked morning with 0.5 foot dribbles. Sometimes, from no where a 2 foot set arrives but that would be every 15-20 mins (extreme patience required). I’d say a swim is in order, yes, a dip and […]

Freaky

What a freaky morning. It’s warm, like spring and heading towards 23 degrees. Also the swell has evaporated overnight. What a drop huh, from 3-4 foot to ankle biters in 24 hours. Winds are NW, typical of a summery day but it’s going to howl 30 knots later. I’m a photographer not a criminal Ken […]

6-thirts

Couldn’t sleep so was wondering around Bondi really early this morning. Good thing there was a cracker of a sunrise with some interesting cloud formations – the type of clouds that warn rain later tonight. Waves were up but suffering under the low tide. Paddle, take off, bottom turn, maybe 1 turn before the whole […]

Winter Love

Love winter. It’s the best time around here. Bondi is half empty and you can even find a car park on Hall Street (from time to time). Winter also brings swell, mostly from the south and we’re facing the right direction to greet it. Yesterday’s dwindling swell has been replace by, yep, yet again, another […]
