Morning People

Was nice to have some morning light in the frames this morning. Hasn’t been much of it around lately. As per the forecast the swell has come up from the East but it’s junkie as hell. A few 4 footers, wobbly and choppy, yet surfable. For the next 5-6 days there is plenty of swell. […]

A very typical Sydney storm is in town. Strong South wind, sloppy south swell and random junkyard out at Bondi. If you want to surf uncrowded Bondi, it’s all yours. 3-4 footers, hard to pick the right ones, but there’s gold in dem hills (for overly enthusiastic an unemployed surfers). For the rest of us, […]

P.S.

We’ve got a sloppy south swell and south wind down at Bondi this morning. The weekend’s clouds are still here and the rain is on and off. Quite a wintery picture down here with only 2, maybe the odd 3 footer. Quality is very poor as squalls roll through, yet the line-up is basically empty. […]

Stealth

This morning I wasn’t expecting much. The swell websites all talked 1’s and 2’s…period was down and last night’s check showed little promise. Well, something arrived, mostly closing out but definitely 3 foot sets. The odd left opened up to the beach in the southern corner of Bondi. The odd right in the middle – […]

Bondi Colour

Nice sky of colour to kick today off. Bondi was a hive of activity at 6:30am. Plenty doing their regular thing. Optimistic crew fighting over leftovers in the surf. Only 1-2 footers on offer today, so no need to rush down. If anything, go for a swim…as it’s just that good. (25) Can you swim […]

Back to Bondi

I know I’ve said it a fair bit lately, but I’ll say it again – real special morning out there. The waves are clean and in the 2-3 foot range. The sun is out, not a cloud in the sky. The water was bath temp. warm. Can do just boardies and maybe a little vest. […]

Taylor, Griggsy and the kids

That spike in swell arrived but didn’t really hang around. Bondi had a large crowd out at sunrise enjoying 2-3 footers, warm water and perfect sunshine. I headed down to Cronulla (Greenhills to be exact) to hook up with Matty Griggs (ex-coach to world champs like Mick Fanning and Steph Gilmore) and his super grom […]

Loggin

The winter’s dial clicked over another notch this morning – did you feel that extra chill in the air earlier today? The water, however, continued its spa-like temperatures (23) – how could you not go in? Interesting day today. Weak 1 footers right now….but around 4pm a south ground swell arrives and the swell period […]

Le Bumps

That was a real nice weekend. I was impressed to see waves on Saturday at Bondi…fun ones (nothing on Sunday). The water has been SO clear and warm lately. Perfect weather. Can’t get much better than that. Today Bondi had the odd 2 foot freak set, but mostly 1 footers dribbled into the corner (with […]
