Geez, sux be Thud or BA. Hope you both recover some time soon.

Meanwhile, I cannot recall Bondi looking so utterly shit surf wise since the closure. The last day I had a surf here, the Sunday after that fateful Friday, was kinda nice. Since then; straight handers from Buckler to Icebergs ...fr 1ft to 4tf.

This arvo, it seemed like Bondi was mad as hell and ain’t gonna take it anymore, and about a dozen emoboldwnwd souls ventured out into abject close outs. Suffice for the occasional inshore reform rolling through at the south end, 9/10 set waves broke end to end sth/nth complete close out.

Mind you the light was divine, the water temp inviting and the passing parade of Uber chic fitness babes totes easy on the eye.

I agree. Bronte not much better. Makes being sensible that bit easier. My wayward trip to Wanda was a nice diversion but wouldn't really be worth a return given the quality either. I imagine a few reef breaks further south would have been lighting up with that solid straight swell though. Council seems to be more tolerant of surfers now.

Long period straight south swell does not translate well for most Sydney beaches.

Lol. Guess this is what happens when you don’t stay in your village.

fucken great day here, swell a bit more bangy and difficult and it seems the COVID crowd has eased off. Thickened up late this arv, very muscular for its size, a little bit of sse bump.

Meanwhile my pals in Hawaii are losing it, the nth shore as been pumping and right now an absolutely marvellous 12’ plus WNW swell is brewing with light winds upon landfall. They can surf but nobody can visit. There's nowhere on Earth I would rather be right now.

Went to my usual mal spot today. I’ve never seen so many people with surfboards there in my life, not even at Easter or Christmas and I’ve been going there for 50 years.
The forecast has been promising perfect swell and wind for a couple of days, and it’s Sunday so I knew it would be busy but this was extraordinary.

fuschia this morning was good.
It had that longer period with appropriate but not too lengthy lulls like you get in the south and the west where you’re happy to get pumped by a set and it’s easy enough to get back out.

Caught 3 set waves to pull off with a dry hair paddle back.
Heard it pumped all day but I had to work.

You don’t push to win a paddle battle with Lennox’s Sunny Garcia.

Well I think as the cops gave warnings and fines at Lennox, the tourists and vans are just pushing further south.
North wall crowd looks like dbah (just check the RMS cam), I surfed a spot where I surf to avoid crowds and there were multiple vans and troopies with luggage on top, about 8 chicks with their bums out (sorry Larry), mals, mini mals, hipster fish, unbuttoned wetty vests, all for the early on a Tuesday morning.
Unheard of here.

Looking at the crowds out at The Bra yesterday arvo and Bronte for that matter I won't be rushing down to join them in a hurry. After being out of the water for a few weeks I would prefer to have a pleasant surf rather than a crap one.
