Lots of swell today, heaps of water moving

Wild Child

Oh man, it’s been windy. Wind is good, wind creates waves. When this wind dissipates there will be decent (clean) surf for us to talk about. At the moment it’s very wild out there. So wild I reckon your board would blow clean out of your hands before it even got to the water. Sheltered beaches […]

Look who's back, Marky 'Chalk' Matthews

Chalk

I caught up with big wave legend Marky ‘Chalkie’ Matthews this morning. He’s been seriously injured (twice) over the past two years. His nickname ‘Chalk’ is in reference to his brittle bones that often break when you’re surfing 20 foot slabs of death. His last fall was at a nasty south coast slab that drilled […]

The iconic Icebergs of Bondi, with plenty of colour today

Planetary Alignment

We’ve had a good run the past coupla days. The surf has been pretty awesome and today the 5 am sunrise was a blaze of colour over Bondi. It’s a tad smaller today with 3-4 footers but from sunrise, it’s been super clean and hollow – pretty much everywhere I looked! Sydney loves an East swell, […]

Bondi Beach on the weekend, standing room only!

Bake

The weekend was the 1st big one for the season – hot, muggy, crowded with northerly winds – just perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon on our beloved coastline. A lot of wintery bleached white bods on the beach, hunting their first dose of a base tan. Waves – not really happening today or on […]

Morning people!

Da Bra

A fine day in Sydney as the mercury warms up to 21 degrees. The swells have dropped but it’s still surfable. Head high waves on offer at most exposed beaches. For a change, I drove down to Maroubra to have a look around, some nice rights. It was a bit smaller than Bondi though…clean. Massive […]

Ex-Bondi, Brett Anderson kicking into the morning sun. Maroubra 7am

Golden Treats

What a fantastic day to be in Sydney. Superb weather, offshore winds and 3-4 foot waves. Swell is now coming from the SE, lighting up most beaches. I bet your local had something… If you can’t get down the beach today, don’t stress. The forecast looks quite healthy for the next week. More 3 foot/offshore […]

Coogee baths, sunrise this morning

2034-2035

Well, well…I’m back in town, and the incredible Autumn conditions prevail. How nice! We’re talking perfect NW offshores, building east swells and glorious sunshine. This morning I left the postcode to wander through 2034 and 2035, (that’s Coogee and Maroubra’s postcode). Everyone is up early and enjoy the good run of warm weather and water. […]

Offshore

It’s offshore and the crowd goes wild! Everyone has hit the beach this morning to get involved. I drove past most of the beaches in the East, and there was a pack of wolves, hunting the morning swells. I hope you got some. Summary – it’s 3-4 foot, swell direction is ESE so plenty of […]

Blowy

It was so good to see some sunshine this morning. Celebrate it! It wasn’t so good to have onshore SSE winds. The 4-5 footers are looking pretty rough, windblown, and random. At 4 am tomorrow it will swing offshore to SW though…now that’s exciting, I would expect tomorrow to be fun. Bondi SurfAid Cup On […]
