A dark old morning down there…couldn’t shoot until at least 7:15am – even then was shooting in the 1200ISO plus range. Little bump at Bondi, 2-3 footers but really junkie. Small wolf pack trying to pick off the lefts but didn’t really see anyone get a decent ride that wasn’t wonky and fat. The early […]

Scarce

The swell arrived but so did the wind (and a bit of rain). Slim pickings out there morning. A choppy 3 foot bump poked up every now and then at South Bondi. Barely anyone out – or even on the beach for that matter. The winds should back off from 20 knots back to 10 […]

APPA

Good morning. There’s some little waves around the traps, Bondi was 2 foot and fat. I’d surf it, probably on a fat board though…something wider than 19 inches to be exact. Tomorrow should be bigger but it could be a lil’ junkie with a trailing SE wind and short interval (5 secs). APPA Awards – […]

Boat Wake

I was surprised to see it even breaking this morning as the rest of the beach was flat like a lake. Get used to it kids, as this whole week looks pretty dry on the swell front….nothing much above your knee caps. If you are a very motivated, hypo, early morning type person you would […]

Morning Sparks

I sat on a rock this morning for a good hour watching 20 odd crew pick off some nice little waves. It’s only 2-3 foot and breaking tight in the corner amongst the morning glare – fun and consistent. There are more lefts than rights but I think that will change as the tide pushes […]

Late

Thought the swell was going to pump up a bit this morning – looks to be running late. We still have some 1 foot dribbles with infrequent, one-every-15-minute-sets. It’s clean, winds are grooming offshore and not a cloud in the sky. Winds will blow 20 knots from the SW (that direction of wind is always […]

Level

This freezing, howling wind has blown all the swell out to sea by the looks of it. Bondi at 6:10am didn’t even break – Lake Bondi. However, by 8:00am I saw a ‘wave’ every 15 minutes…then at 9:10am there’s a little something to sample – 1 to 2 foot, breaking nice on the left. Could […]

The Now

A few of my mates think it’s a bit odd that I get up at sunrise every day. Those same mates think the best time of the day is 3am at the White Revolver (yeah you creepy Birdman). 6:30am this morning was a good time of day to be down the beach. The best. It […]

Swaddled

Last weekend was a great one for surfers. Solid swell on both days – if only it could be that good all the time. As predicted the swell has backed off this morning, but there are still super fun 3 footers. I don’t think it will hang around for long…dwindling fast. Tomorrow will be small […]
