Bondi is a crazy place. We forget just how mental after two years of Covid/La Nina – watering the madness down. This summer, we have an enormous array of tourists returning AND the kick-ass weather to match. It’s back to full crank…it’s hilarious, there’s no place like it.
I shimmied down the beach at 5:40 am; at South Bondi, a group of girls are dressed up in frocks doing tik-tok dancers to the camera (?), the water is packed, the beach is packed, there’s squads training EVERYWHERE. When I say squads, I am now talking 200 plus patrons. The shorey at South on high was slabbing, and I watched tourists get absolutely axed. Then there’s the outdoor gym – what a colourful spot on Bondi. I just never know what to expect there…I saw cheerleaders doing chin-ups this morning -surrounded by men coated in baby oil, flexing.
You must remember; this is all at sunrise when people usually sleep.
Waves – yes, we have a little spike in the south swell, providing the odd chest high wave. There’s only one peak; needless to say; it’s very congested.
