Later

And so….that rain didn’t hit last night…must’ve just blown out to sea…and the swell hasn’t quite arrived yet…BUT there is still a little bump – the odd 2 footer/3 footer(ish) rideable lump in the southern corner of Bondi. A later surf would bear more fruit – as it should be bigger and better with hopefully […]

The Junkyard

Good morning kids. In the shadows of recent morning gold, today is rating relatively low. The surf has gone all junkie and bumpy (smaller too!2/3). There were a few fun lefts, odd right but definitely not cranking. The banks are still there and it looks like more swell arrives tomorrow – hopefully it will switch […]

Good Times

Good times out there today…gentle offshore…sunshine…3-4 footers. Perfect conditions for many places today. It’s even a tad bigger than yesterday. The good news is that even if you can’t get out there today don’t stress – there’s waves pretty much all the way to the weekend. The banks are finely tuned as well… Johannes Leak […]

Red Rock

The beaches of Sydney have copped a pounding over the past couple of weeks. All the sand at South Bondi has been ripped off the beach and dragged back out to sea exposing a series of bright red rocks that I didn’t know existed. Today is much calmer than recent times. The past 2 weeks […]

Tubes in the harbour

If I told you that you could get barrelled whilst surfing Sydney Harbour I’m pretty sure you’d think I’m a can short of a six pack. Well, you can. The right conditions 1) a raging, excessively large SE swell, 2) howling south wind and 3) 1 x Otis Carey = you’ll get tubed amongst the […]

Damp

It’s been pouring for hours now. Your shoes are probably still soggy. I went down the beach this morning – no one. Not 1 surfer, not one decent wave, not even the hard core bodysurfers. It’s like a wet ghost town. Large 7 foot sets are breaking but the 30 knot onshore is tearing it […]

D o u s e

Currently we have a violent storm ravaging Sydney. It wasn’t a morning for photography as I couldn’t even see across the bay. The wind must be 35 knots plus…junk is strewn down our street and I think a wettie blew off the balcony. Today is a day for indoors, a day for work. Here is […]

Twin Pipes

Was kinda a text book Aquabumps Bondi morning. Kicked off with a subtle sunrise, few clouds lighting up. Then the left bank put on some small 2 foot sets – they looked enticing in the morning light. It was nice and glassy, the air was warm and plenty of people up early doing their ‘before […]

Lucky Lefts

The swell has settled and now the northlies are blowing – all back to normal. It’s only small, (2 foot), but Bondi hosted some fun ones with 2 distinct banks in full operation earlier today. It looks like the good banks have survived the recent pounding can you believe it! Enjoy the sunshine today as […]
