Colourful Fridays

A lot was going on down at Bondi this morning. In fact that’ an understatement. It was a crazy combination of some of the best waves we’ve had all week, Friday (so everyone comes down), warm bath-like water, decent sunrise and One Wave (Fluro Fridays) 6th Birthday – busy! Good to see a little kick […]

At sunrise this morning there was a small gap in the wild storms. I even experienced a moment of sunshine. It was nice and neat, glassy this morning, but since then the SE is blowing, quite strong too. It’s all junked up. Heavy rain is due for the weekend! :: uge

Solar Marathon

We’re bang in the middle of a solar marathon (and swell drought). I hope you’re enjoying it (the sun bit that is – not the 1 footers). Sunday could even pass as a normal beach day (24). The swell forecast is meant to scoop up from 1 foot to 4 foot. I am a little […]

Party Time

Gotta give it to those One Wave crew, they’ve surely started something big. It’s their 2nd birthday today and an enormous crowd rolled down to Bondi at sunrise. It could not have been a better morning for the crew. No waves, warm water and stunning sunrise. Bondi is surfless. North East swells don’t even enter […]

Hot Doggin’

The sun is back and the surf is dribbling. What a nice morning. Looks all calm and orderly right now doesn’t it…well, in 28 hours the ocean is going to roar and spit out 8-10 footers. Yes hellmen, huge swell kicking really hard tomorrow afternoon. Where you going to be? It’s ski season and some […]
