Brock Jeffery-Warren Sky high! #sorryforgotyourname

Escalation

It got real big, real quick this morning. It’s now 6-8 foot and onshore, but at sunrise there was a little window for surfers. I saw a nice right way up North before the flags opened for the day. We’re having a spectacular run of swell this week. Just need to hang until the onshores […]

It’s on.

I have to confess, standing on the beach shooting can be torturous when your mates are scoring barrels out front. Today’s got waves, real good ones. It’s offshore all-day and a salubriously sunny, exquisite summer’s day. Swell is fading, and will be much smaller on dark. But…boom! There’s a fresh swell arriving tomorrow flanked with […]

Rogue Chunks

South Bondi had a few, but they were quite rare and fickle. When they broke they’re in the 4-6 foot mark. Lots of water moving around making […]

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. :: […]

Regardless of today, summer is coming...

Bondi Moods

Today is definitely not a beach day. Nope, not even close. The waves looked dreary, onshore, manky, junky and brown! Rain is pouring and this will continue for a couple of days. That’s OK, I truly hope it’s helping with the northern fires and drought conditions. It’s cold, I’ve got the old puffer on. Bunker […]
