Howdy. Conditions were o-kaaay this morning. A huge wolf pack feasted on 1-2 footers. It was a little messy and weak – but as Bondi always is….it was surfable. Wave of the day rolled through at 7:34am – it was very impressive. It hit the bank just right, stood up and threw some lip. I […]

Morning Fizz

Southerly winds were blowing this morning puttin’ loads of chop out there. Waves broke around 2 foot, sometimes 3. The left was better than the right and the southern corner better than anything else on the beach. At first it was cloudy, then it rained for a bit, now it’s sunny. Only 18 degrees today, […]

Patience

You could have driven past the beach this morning, had a glance and kept driving on to work, thinking you’ve missed nothing. If you sat and watched it for 30 minutes you’d realise there were infrequent, rideable, but fun fat sets every now and then. Some 2 foot, some even 3 foot…you just had to […]

Early

You had to be up early today to score some waves. Between 6:30am and 7:30am waves broke around 2-3 foot at Maroubra, which revelled in these east swells. At 7:40am the southerly blew and quality rapidly dwindled. The sunshine is still out and it should reach 20 degrees today. This weekend I don’t think you’ll […]

CX Swell Check

Planes can’t land in Sydney until after the 6 a.m. curfew. This actually is quite good ‘cause the pilots trawl up and down the coast awaiting their shot at the runway. Sitting in a window seat on CX111 I could check the surf from Buggeries to Garie. It was quite obvious, even from a decent […]

Made in China

Looks like I didn’t missing many good waves Monday or Tuesday this week (yes, I am still in China in that same room looking at the wall for the 3rd day). But hang on…just got Kane Skennar’s images from Bondi this morning… it looks like fun 2-3 footers as the wind has finally backed off. […]

Ni hao

Hurro from China. Kane Skennar got out at Bondi to shoot my morning snaps again today seeing I’m a long way from the beach. Fortunately it looks like the onshore wind has died down, the waves are 2-3 foot and a few junkie opportunities around the place. Tomorrow should be cleaner (but again smaller) – […]

Chinabumps

I’ve filed Aquabumps reports from all over the globe but never from a factory floor in mainland China with 10,000 employees running around (yes, that’s ten thousand! and that’s just in this plant!). I couldn’t be any further from a beach today…. I showed the plant workers pictures of where I live and they think […]

Salty

Not the best morning for taking photographs. The rain seemed to follow me and my lenses around. Nice left in the corner though – albeit much smaller than previous days. The left had a little consistent bowl, good if you’re a really small human. Oh yeah, real cold out there too! I saw a few […]
