Rip dip

Greetings. Rolled down the hill to have a look at Bondi and was greeted with some fun 2 footers. Finally some south swell is drip feeding into the bay with the potential of getting bigger as the day progresses. The world’s greatest bank had waves, but the rip switched on putting some chop on the faces. That rip, which is obviously making the bank so good, is hard work – it’s like crossing a raging river. The wind is howling 30 knots offshore – hence the cold and blowing most of the swell out to sea.

Does anyone know why there were multiple Police vehicles parked at South Bondi all morning? Was that a forensic team as well or am I watching too much tele? I asked them, but they told me to check out the whales going past.

As a part of the Bondi winter festival the Beach Road Hotel is puttin’ on Wicked Wednesday Grub and Flick Nights – So if you like a steak, a pint and a surf flick all for 20 bones head down tonight.

It’s no secret, the Mentawai Islands off Sumatra are having the best season. From all skipper’s reports most tours are scoring 4-6 foot gems. Tengirri is now taking bookings for their 2012 trips and now is the time to book. (they normally book out a year in advance) Hit them up for some dates and get your buddies together anthony@tengirri.com

  1. Don’t know the reason for the police but did see one come into the carpark around 6.45 with lights and siren going – so something urgent was happening

    1. Yeah sorry about that Holly…I saw this morning for 2 hours against it – so I guess it’s top of mind. uge

  2. there were about 8 cops and one guy in cuffs…prolly a drunk boy who lost his way

  3. Apparently thieves had broken into the carpark of the building where I live, (neighbours said this morning)… hope my car is still there :∫ … it’s actually, not the first time that happens… plus stolen wallet and clothes from car parked at the bondi carpark while I was surfing few months ago… not cool. I wonder if I can claim that as charity on this year tax return 🙂
