Sitting on the shoreline with a big lens wasn’t gonna happen today. With perfect 24 degree water I had to get in the drink for a swim around with the camera. The waves weren’t perfect (1-2 footers) and the rip in the middle was on turbo – nonetheless an amazing morning to get wet. Do it.
We currently have a swell in town from the east and the winds are from the north east. Tomorrow is a new day as a SE groundswell arrives which should produce some decent opportunities for a surf. My guess – 3 ft.
A cleanly shaved Bede Durbidge, world ranked no. 5 came down to Bondi yesterday afternoon for a promo event – launching a new Schick shaver Hydro. He’s a good bloke, humble, normal, understated…and surfs unbelievably. I reckon 2011 he’ll do well on the tour…watch out for him.
