Flow

Kinda a standard Bondi morning that went a lil’ like this: 6:30am, good sunrise, low hanging clouds being lit up. 2-3 footers on a fatish high tide, nice OK waves. Bit wonky and lacking decent banks. But hey…surfable. Icebergs and beach relatively quiet. Cooler times promotes a good sleep in. Water is warm, still. Aren’t […]

Aaahhhh yes….these are the mornings. The mornings where it’s beautifully warm both in and out of the water. There’s a little pulse of swell and a right hander worthy of a surf. It’s just a fantastic time of year, agree? You should really pop down for a swim. :: uge

Power groms

A pack of groms owned Maroubra this morning. About 8 of them. All sub 30 kgs each. They can paddle into a ripple, pop an air, high five a mate then kick off. Heckling is constantly broadcasted from the channel – it’s awesome. I can’t wait for my little men to get out there. OK ‘nuf […]

Mush

Take at look the photo above…that kinda sums up the beach today. Mush burgers. The wind is howling and we have isolated showers. You’re not really missing anything down here on the beach. Feels like winter. Do some work. Have a cup of tea. :: uge

Frigid

That pre-sunrise offshore wind has a bite to it – duzzzinit? Another cold morning dropping to 6 degrees. The air is super clean and super crisp. Colours seem to pop in this winter air. I like that. We have a long period dead south swell in town. South facing beaches would be attracting 3-4 footers…inconsistently. […]

50/50

I wasn’t sure if it would be pouring with rain or deeply overcast this morning. Surprisingly…it was neither. Golden hues welcomed the day after a steamy night…felt just like Singapore. By 8am the cloud cover won the battle and is here to stay. Waves – nothing of significance to discuss. I saw weak waist high […]

The Duke

How nice is this time of year? You can visit the beach twice a day and still have plenty of light up your sleeve. The beach is packed and everyone is smiling, enjoying the salubrious conditions. The surf is still tiny but something is brewing…a swell shall arrive this Sunday. Do you know who The […]

Misguided

We have waves! Good ones… I’m giving up on forecasting this week as reality is exceeding my predictions, daily. It is 3 foot and from the south east. Super clean with chilly offshores. Bondi and Maroubra both had good waves. The joys of winter. ::uge P.S. I lost one of my favourite flippers today at […]

Flicker

For a brief moment there I thought the clouds were going to clear…about half-an-hour later it rained. I think it’s going to be a lil’ volatile today. I saw waves though. 3 feet and onshore – Bondi’s finest. The line-up was deserted, it always is when there are clouds in the sky. Especially on a […]
