Windy and chunky – that’s a good summation of what I saw down the beach today. You’ll need to surf nooks and crannies tucked away from the Southerly. Its kinda offshore right now, SW, but it will edge around to the South later today and pick up to 20 knots. Typical winter’s day. Rained 3 […]

Wanna surf Bondi on your own amongst 3 footers, read no further and best paddle out now. It’s not incredible as the early morning high tide put plenty of wonk in the faces. But it is all yours. Couple of things to note about this week: – In general, there will be waves breaking all […]

Not a bad week to be running around the beaches with a camera. Some decent moments worth capturing. This morning’s focus is on the sunrise, which splurged colour across our skies around 6:30am. There are waves as well, smaller than yesterday and still coming from a ESE direction. North winds all day, making it clean, […]

Heavy Fog

No two mornings are the same. I guess that is what draws me back down there every day after so many years. Yesterday I couldn’t even get out of the car as the rain blanketed down. This morning a thick fog smothered Sydney, making it hard to see what’s going on out the back. One […]

I’ve been down the beach 3 times this morning to get the shots. Blanket rain over Sydney made those missions a little difficult. I could see semi-clean waves from the car park at Bondi. Perhaps shoulder high with the odd head high set. No one around. Wind looks to be coming from the North – […]

There is quite a bit more East in the swell today, but the nemesis SSE wind is flanking, roughening up anything that you’d want to ride. Tomorrow the winds will lighten and the swell increase. But Wednesday onwards we […]

Bondi Babble

A new batch of south swell is slowing starting to trickle in…she’s a little junkie (short period) and winds are icy SW (right off the mountains down south). On dark tonight it should be over head high. Tomorrow bigger and Sunday the biggest. Strong southerly winds are forecasted for a few days, so you will […]

Vicious

The claws of winter were digging deep this morning. I got down the beach in the dark and it was bitterly cold. My phone said it hit 2 degrees this morning (my phone seems to know everything). That wind was icy and cut through the layers. Good lil’ bank down at Bondi for surfing. The […]

Hey there. Bondi loves these days. A wiff of dead south swell and we have a little peak on a couple of sand banks. It’s small and long period swell, translating to infrequent waves, but when they roll in, you may get one around shoulder high. Could take 15 – 20 minutes though, but it’s […]
