You’ve heard me mention the dire situation of our Bondi sandbanks for surfers… well… I was hoping the Bulldozers would come south and throw us a bone – no such luck. The Dozer work completed on North Bondi has seemed to make the shoreline even steeper (if that is possible) – what that means for swimmers is it’s exploding right on the shore edge, where you usually think it’s safe to stand. These shoreline thumper setups are dangerous, and you get a lot of neck and spinal injuries when it’s like this. It’s much safer to rush out the back into deeper water where it’s not dumping.
There is a large swell approaching, making its way from Queensland and arriving this weekend. I really, really hope it changes the banks for good.
Surf this morning?
Nah. South Bondi was unsurfable…and there aren’t many other options. Perhaps on a lower tide, you might find something to ride.
Have a great day,
