Le Gauche

Indonesia is the land of the left-handers. Indo’s orientation to the great swells from the Indian Ocean means they break left more than right. A goofy footer’s paradise. I reckon we surf 4 lefts to every right. I’m a natural footer!

Our bump in swell is dropping and the swell magnets are still putting on a show. I still see sets in the double head-high range.

I heard Sydney is being bombed by a huge swell. I’m really hoping that the sandbanks at Bondi get a good refurbishment with all the pounding. Before we left, it could not have been straighter.

  1. There are will be no sand banks when you get back Uge.
    All the sand is now across the road sitting in the pub.
    It’s time to re-establish the conversation for an artificial reef at Bondi. Let city council show what they really care about the beach, environment and community. The Reef will be good not just for surfers but for the marine life as well, so green fanatics should support this idea too.
    Why Gold Coast can and rich Bondi council can’t?
