You would never get these sort of problems at Bondi. Conditions seem to be irrelevant to most of the learners. They just spend 15 minutes stretching and then paddle out.

Fcuking hell. I was going to paddle out in the corner this arvo but went out in front of the skate park. Bad move... after relentless duck diving I ended up over there by the time I got out anyway.

But look at you two chatting like grizzled Bondi locals! Give it another month or two and it might even start to sound convincing

Hard core Bondi locals moved out about twenty years ago I reckon. There's plenty of locals but compared to say Bronte there's no real presence in the line up. Tons of Brazzos.

down south was one of those days today. Conditions were so beautiful mid morning, no wind, groomed swell with some grunt, water about 19-20 degrees, clear skies and that magic sparkle in the air that only autumn brings. The waves, however, were appalling. The island was an old man with dementia, confused and hapless, back beach was crisp closeouts, out the front was the same and lake mouth was the only wave offering any consolation. After a short spell it also just switched off, too many straight ones and no banks to sort it out. After looking for a few with a corner the call was made for breakfast.
This afternoon was worse, light to medium onshore and a rapidly dropping swell from 2 sources which created a confused cancelling out. Consolation was watching the local sea eagle trying to scope a fish from a seal that had caught one in the line up.

Yeah, no doubt there would have been a few switching on SS, but i tend to haunt my local few spots once i'm here and don't hit the highway much in search of other surf, mostly due to the fact a lot of the reefs get a decent crowd and there's generally enough variety available locally, not today though.

Yeah, I'm the the same.

Been a dreadful, dreadful summer and autumn here......but up the road north of Byron to the QLD border there have been fun beach breaks.

fcuked if I can be bothered though to drive 45minutes to surf 3ft beach breaks.

I wouldn't last 2 weeks if I had to surf those junky Sydney beach breaks like Bondi or Maroubra.

Same down here, the odd flukey day but generally piss poor. No banks for months, sand movements a bit weird and not helpful for surf.

I actually say Bondi is a bit like south beach Kingscliff when I'm trying to give some idea about it to people from up north. That's without the reef of course. You two should be ashamed of yourself not driving for hours by the way.

I can't believe how bad that analogy is beanpole.
They're both wet I guess.

Duck probably isn't legal to drive until mid afternoon so surfing locally is best for everyone.

cool lil snively south bump today, clean. Sand is absolutely piled on the beaches. I don't know if the weather will ever break this coming winter. It might just stay warm, smooth, clear, and fcuking three foot forever.
