neon

I was up real early today. I small human called Jet was mainly to blame…I think the lil’ man saw the pink horizon glow seeping in through the blinds. For a very short moment, before sunrise, the sky was glowing neon pink. The rest of the morning was overcast and dark. We’ve got a NE […]

Backwash

Howdy. We’ve currently got a mini-north windswell breaking with north winds best at north facing beaches. Bondi did have a little fun one on the incoming tide, but low tide will ruin that. It’s not amazing, very weak (1-2 ft) – but they say it should get bigger later tonight. Now that’s good to hear. […]

Flipside

We’ve had some amazing contrasts in the weather lately. Saturday you woke up to typhoon like rain and Sunday you woke up to spring bliss. A few little waves have been popping up here and there, super fun down at Bondi this morning with 2 (sometimes) 3 footers. With the morning sunshine blazing – conditions […]

Friday Rambles

We haven’t had the best run of surf and weather have we? I mean sitting in the Bondi car park hiding from the rain watching a handful of dudes scrapping over 1-2 foot mush at Bondi was kinda a desperate sight. Not one bit of me wanted to be out there. They say the swell […]

Gusty

It’s fair to say when windsurfers are doing loops out the back of Bondi in 15-20 knot gusts that the surf conditions probably aren’t ideal. Ok, it’s horrible today. Onshore, mush, slush, mixed in with skanky rain water runoff. Kinda cold and still raining – completely the opposite to W.A which is experiencing 37 degree […]

A work day…

Today is one of THOSE days where you’re better off sittin’ in the office. It’s that 1 day in 90 where it’s flat like a lake and pouring with rain, hang on – the southerly just blew in as well. So now its flat and junkie – wow. Not pretty. The good news is that […]

Tiger Stripes

It’s been so flat lately. Looks like today is the turning point though….last night waves came up and now we have 2 foot chuggers fizzing to the beach. It’s not smoking, but surfable. Tomorrow and Thursday should be bigger (3-4ft) but possibly flanked with southerlies. See a wave, surf it I reckon. Cool clouds in […]

Beach Pilgrimage

Hola. Fair chance most of you were down the beach on the weekend. Who wasn’t. You probably didn’t take a board with you (flat as), just the baby oil and the reflecto sunnies (spinin’ rims and all mate). Bondi Road was gridlock all weekend long. It was also the conclusion of Sculpture by the Sea […]

moody

Normally I wouldn’t put today in the ‘hey there’s a little wave on’ category, but seeing we’ve had a wave deprived week and you’re all in a bad mood – there’s a ‘little’ wave on in the corner of Bondi. You will need plenty of float to get going, the 20 x 3 inch variety, […]
