Inland dust has blown to the coast, creating the haze. Bondi 6am

Dust Haze

This morning Sydney was engulfed by dusty haze. Yesterday’s strong winds kicked up the dust inland of Sydney, then a weather trough dragged the dust east to the coast, just in time for our sunrise. It’s a little different to our recent smoke screens, and you may get a few respiratory problems! Waves – what […]

Hattrick

Yes, another cracker sunrise for this week – our third. Makes my job a helluva lot easier when the skies are ablaze with colour – basically, I can point my camera in any direction and shoot – and the images come up trumps.  For those non-morning people, we only usually get one cracker sunrise per […]

Epic

Every morning I peer through my blinds hoping that just the right amount of cloud will be in the correct position to light up above Bondi. Today it was on. Amazing colours to greet this fine day. Still after 16 years of Bondi sunrises I get stoked to wake up to this! Even though the […]

3rd RAMPAGE

The morning began with an electric sunrise over Benny Buckler…fluoro reds and pinks splattered across the skies. That lasted for about 5 minutes and then she went all grey. The waves were unimpressive this morning. The forecast was much stronger but the swell just didn’t happen…seriously… it barely got over head high yesterday…where did it […]

re-ignite

Sorry about the slightly late update, been watching 12 foot bombs at the Hawaiian Pipe Masters, Would you paddle out there? Last night before I closed my eyes I checked the weather and it said “Showers in the morning, clearing”. Couldn’t be any further from the truth. Clear skies, 24 degrees, blue water, chest high […]

Fridee rambles

Not really spinnin’ my wheels out there this morning. 0.5ft – 1 footers and crowded. Recipe for disaster. Wear a stack hat. Glorious weather though, 28 degrees today and summery NE winds all day – well, before a late South change which will ruin this pretty picture providing rain all weekend. Yep. Rain all weekend. […]

Double Up

Seeing the swell forecast charts show a lot of zero’s it’s a bonus to get a surf in today. Bondi is squeezing the most out of this micro swell, most waves 1-2 foot and surfable(ish) Me thinks grab a long (or fat) board and go for a paddle, it’s such a nice day out there.(again) […]

Parko

With 10-15 knots of early easterly winds it’s pretty junkie out there. At least there are waves in the 2-3 foot range…nothing special. Maybe wait for tomorrows swell spike. Parko is Back! Joel Parkinson (AUS) has just won the Quiksilver Pro up at Superbank in style scoring a perfect 10 with a massive tube. Could […]

The Still Chill

The threat of winter has taken the summer’s edge of this morning. You can feel it…it’s coming…nearly had to wear a jumper…look on the bright side – with winter comes decent south swells and low crowds. Also Indo surfing season kicks back into gear…ohhh yeah, now ya talkin’. The talk of the town is this […]

Feverish

There was a micro wave hitting a shallow bank at Bondi. Well kinda… 1 footers predominantly broke with chilly water (boardies alone is not sufficient). Waht a steamy night (not talking about with the little lady)…it’s bakin’ again down the beach with massive morning crowds enjoying the fruits of mid-summer. Maximum of 30 degrees today […]

dozer dribbles

It’s a bit like checking your shares…disappointing. That swell we had yesterday has been knocked around by the howling northerlies, leaving dribbles this morning. Bondi had micro 1-2 footers with absolutely no push. Pack of hungry mal riders in the middle having some fun. That dreaded ‘Dozer is back on the beach straightening the beach […]

corner peaks

There is a little wave in the southern corner of Bondi this morning (2 foot, odd one slightly larger). The south swell has dropped after a pretty decent session on dark last night. Winds have started to blow 15 knots from the NE and the clouds will increase their presence. Tomorrow a new NE swell […]
