Bondi was chunky and annoying. I was hoping that having the north bank open for business again might have created some interest....like on Wednesday....but it was too crowded and erratic.

Late arvo slightly onshore still some DOH sets
Just 8 out
Grabbed a set that drew off the reef nicely
Stalled into a solid barrel
Slotted all the way to the rip
Straightened up in front of the beach bar and called it a day

I was there and in a loquacious mood. We may have been a couple of ships that past in the night. Had a couple of really entertaining chats, might have been O55

Paddled out before sunrise today
Already 6 in the water and half the size of yesterday
Was Greeted with "Man your barrel last night was insane".
That was the highlight of today's session - it got packed quick

Middle of that day
Funny how when the wave size halfs the crowd doubles
