Just a few warm-up surfs so far this trip Steve, but things are looking more consistent

Dead low at 7:30am, walked across the reef and paddled through the impact zone without getting my hair wet. Just two of us on the primo break, regular head high waves, overhead sets, glassy - we took it in turns, no conflict whatsoever.There was a group of about a dozen surfers on a safer break about 750m away, otherwise no-one.

Wave size increased steadily on the incoming tide. I moved to another peak that handles double overhead and immediately scored a 300m ride up to the other group of surfers, then paddled back and did it again, and again. Then a bigger one that went right through the pack. Had to concentrate on safely moving through them all, a bit like slalom course markers.

Got out after 2 hours. Hopefully the wind will hold off on the falling tide later today.

I hope I haven't offended Trev again. And I got lots for you Steve.

There's been a gentle rain falling all night, it's just cleared and everything is dripping. Good, even head high swell and a light on-shore - no-one out, it's fcuked but could change any time

Went for the late. A mixed bag but not bad if you snared one.

Yup. I waited until the crowd dispersed. Can't believe how crowded the south end got.

Fcuk there's no banks around here. It's dire. As the swell grew yesterday and the easterly wind lay down, there would have been some waves, but there wasn't. Every line just slamming closeouts on straight, shallow banks. Rips are all over the shop, the usual rip locations are not around. If you could grab a shoulder and get 2 turns, you were lucky. Today was worse, nice lines, bout head high or above with a good push, smashed by the wind which picked up through the day to the point of destroying what may have been surfable. Been dire for months now. Water is warm as toast though, good sough dough toast, fresh, not frozen.

Started okay but as it filled in the classic Bondi too small to break between sets and too big for the bank in the sets started to come into play. A few lefts looked good and the odd right. Medium ones were good if they connected right through.

It was quite straight and closing out on quite a few yesterday. Just had to pick the right ones.

Banks are only really liking the dead low tide at the mo, any water on them and they are too full.

yeah , ya reckon, where?
sth end here had an epic little peak early this morning on the particularly high tide.
almost flawless, each wave peeling off left and right, several waves in succession between momentary lulls.

and 'bra past weeks seemed best on the high tide.

because the wind is into it and the swell has dropped, tide was way too high for it this morning. Yesterday was significantly better around midday on the lower tide then a couple hours later.

It's a rare day when Bondi is any good on low tide. I was out about 4:00......had to leave work early to renew my beachpass :-D-: Skips on the money.


Mmaaaaaaayyyyyyybbbbeee...Loofs scored right down in the corner......but the reality is the sets at 4:00 waves were still smashing the shallow bank and closing out. You had to pick a medium one and hope it connected. Surprising how much force some of the close outs had.

Some nice looking lefts yesterday arvo and I imagine earlier today would have been good too.
