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.
