Wild sets, rumbling inside Bondi's bay

Wild Thing

Big and brutal! Not a good day to go surfing out at Bondi. At sunrise, there was a small windless window where you could find some inside runners, but now, she’s blown out and big, big, big. Ok, maybe 6-8 foot. Southerly is in town…chill out until it calms down. Cloudy and rainy tomorrow. :: […]

Blown! Rain coming today. Get wet right now

Rainmaker

It’s gonna rain soon. If you haven’t been down for a swim/surf you’re running out of time. It’s going to rain for a couple of days and hopefully fill our dams. At sunrise the skies were clear, by 9am it’s greyed over. Tiny swell still producing a few fun little waves for the frothers. Wednesday […]

Wave layers, Bondi Beach 6:30am

Fresh

The current east swell has dropped a gear. An early morning low tide was closing out most waves at Bondi during sunrise. Every now and then a shoulder-high set will limp in, but it’s not unreal. Just surfable. Fantastic conditions, light offshores, perfectly sunny. Like yesterday, another cracker day to be outside in Sydney. Have […]

Best wave I saw all morning...

Rays

Ah…so good to have some rays back – welcome to SPRING! The ocean has calmed down and the waves cleaned up. I saw head high sets this morning breaking kinda well. It was offshore earlier, but now a gentle southerly is fluffing around. Great weather all week long before a windy, stormy Friday. Enjoy. :: […]

It's blowing hard early! Icebergs 7am

On-shaw

Similar to yesterday it’s raining, onshore and dark grey. Fortunately, there is a bit more swell today but it’s still in the two-foot range. #notpumping In a nutshell – continue to do work as you’re not missing anything down here on the beach! I’m selling some camera gear on eBay, click below:

South Bondaka, clean and weedy

Good Bondi Weed

Bondi has a great batch of weed at the moment. Some of the best weed I’ve seen in years. It’s thick, fury and plentiful…be careful, it will try and engulf you! What a sensational day. Ultra clean conditions with little or no wind. Sunshine was out but rising late as we approach the winter solstice […]

Wind Switch

It was onshore early but looks cleaner now. I think the winds are switching. The forecasted swell has arrived and waves are in the 2-sort-of-3 foot. It’s surfable, contestable, semi-enjoyable. Definitely not pumping. Maybe if this wind continues to drift to the North it will get cleaner and have more potential. I need your help. […]

Luke Adam, blowing fins. Bondi 7am

Morning candy

It may be dark and occasionally rainy, but there was a left-hander worthy of a paddle at sunrise. Emphasis on the ‘was’ part. My 10:35 am surf check reveals the show is all over, for now. The SE swell from yesterday has dissipated. Do some work. KS in Sydney I can remember shooting Kelly Slater surf a Maroubra QS […]

Happy Mondays

Mondays are the best. They’re even better when it’s 30 degrees on land, 24 in the water with a generous East swell pumping into all nooks and crannies of Sydney. Today you’ll find a wave, not big, but fun. Maybe chest high ones with a lower crowd factor. In fact, most of this week should have […]

Sensational morning, warm water.

Immerse

Get in. Immerse yourself in the ocean, it’s deluxe, it’s 25 degrees! We’ve got tiny waves, they’re surfable around the waist to occasionally chest high freak set. The crowd was big, we’re all enjoying the conditions. Sun was out, finally after an earlier rain squall at sunrise. Nothing significant to discuss on the surf forecast. […]

Aphotic

So dark this morning, took ages to get any shootable light. Had a coffee and all waiting for it to poke through the clouds. Waves – yes. There’s a small waist high wave with the odd bigger set. It was blowing NE this morning earlier, but now the Southerly has hit and will increase to […]

Waterworld

What a top morning. In fact, what an epic beach weekend. You all look a little browner and more relaxed than you did on Friday. I hope you spent the whole weekend down the beach! I did. This week looks like another good beach week with a twist. There’s a big mutha cyclone swell lurking […]

Best option - swim today, Bondi 6:30am

South Change

A micro NE swell with fresh southerlies. Things have cooled down… The beach was still relatively busy this morning after a balmy night’s sleep. Not much else to do down there other than a swim. In fact, for most of this week, I don’t reckon you’ll be surfing much. Friday looks okay…ish. SurFebruary: get on […]
