Gosh, it’s been busy around Bondi lately. The weather on the weekend was A1 – seducing so many people for a swim or surf.
I know, I know…at 5:30 am the skies blew up into pinks. I missed a cracker. I only missed it by a few minutes; please forgive me. I’m still slapping myself.
The surf is enormous today with a fresh batch of south ground swell. It’s building, and I saw waves in the 6-8 foot range at 6 am. Dang. I didn’t see anyone get a decent ride. Let it settle. Too big for around here. We need a reef.
Local News. The Bondi lifeguards mentioned someone drowned on Saturday night around 8 pm (after all the lifeguards had packed up at 7 pm); just devastating sad news. The rips are so powerful at the moment; please be careful out there, swim the flags and not swim South Bondi (it’s hectic). If you do get sucked out to sea, float and don’t panic.
P.S. Christmas Cutoff deadlines approaching
