The Humans of Bondi

Bondi gets such a bad wrap in Summer. I post a shot of a packed Sunday and loads of crew comment saying that’s their worst beach nightmare. To be clear, it’s rammed, choccas, overflowing with humans only about 5% of the time. The rest of the time Bondi is pretty peaceful joint with a solid community of great people. Our sand is fine and white, the water clean and there’s pretty much something to surf every single day – no, it doesn’t pump often, but it’s always got something.

Today is going to be another big day down here as we creep up to 34 degrees on the mercury. I am sure the North end will be a hive of flesh, the carpark will be backed up and the bongos will be banging into the night. Love it or hate it, it’s a pretty exciting place to hang and be a photographer. I’ve documented this beach for 20 years now, almost daily…and I still find there is always something new to shoot.

See you down the beach. Waves are tiny!

Peace. :: uge

P.S. Big southerly hitting tomorrow morning, it WILL cool down. Don’t worry, but today is the best beach day.

  1. Bondi is great the icebergs pool is excellent and the grab hole cafe at the pool is brilliant but the pool reception staff and the pool manager are the most arrogant and rude i have ever experienced they just dont care about customers at all leveraging of the fact its the icebergs so we dont care are about what you as customers might have as concerns the pool manager is the most rude and arrogant i have ever experienced any where in the world he takes cake for his rudnes very disappointing Leslie

  2. Completely agree! They need to go. I realise it’s a private club..always has been-but if you do let some needed for $$ or contractural reasons- public in- (after the front desk ID siging in rigamarole) then be decent and welcoming, not scoffing down your nose for no reason- or you will go the way of the rest of outdated old school snob dinosaurs! And all will lose. I’m from Tamarama.& now visiting with my son Bruno from my home in NY .
