Half right- Scotch Egg was indeed where I stayed. The down home spot is a special place that doesn't always have a wave - unreal punchy, heavy peaks until these big south swells take the sand away...

Banks are cooked around here.
Ruining good conditions and swells the last few days.
I had to venture up Steve’s hood yesterday and managed to snag great waves at an outer bank beachie by myself connecting all the way to the inside which was a surprise for school hols.
Hopefully this S swell sorts some sand out around here though.

Smaller than yesterday with the SE wind on it but still OK.

Heading back to Sydney after scoring a few on the FNC. Crescent was good on Thursday and Friday. Surfed where Buddy mentioned on Saturday and Sunday. Pretty small but fun if you got one. Kingy and Caba on Monday. The Pass on Tuesday. Zilch yesterday. Might try Boomerang this morning.

Good point :roll:
Boomerang was pretty ordinary.

Bondi today still had some nice little banks happening before the SEaster came up.

Definitely not. I can think of few things worse. Newcastle wouldn’t have been a bad venue to watch if you were so inclined though.

This morning was absolutely pumping down here. Clean, 5-8 ft sets, powerful swell.

I had a fairly brutal hangover which wasn’t ideal, but managed to get a couple of good ones!

Bondi is looking good. Crazy crowds. Junior has just hit it. I’m contemplating whether to give it a wack after breakfast. Wicked rip in the south corner. Lefts and dredging rights. I’ve surfed the last seven of eight days with less crowds.
Went out. Too crowded but the lefts were going off. The odd bomb coming through.

Four foot reef. A little inconsistent but plenty of thump when they came through. Some nice beachies earlier on the higher tide

Bondi. Still good banks. Crowded as you would expect and a strong rip in the corner.

The wind has a lot more south west in it this morning. Expect less accurate swell forecasting now the Queenslanders can’t look at the comp footage to predict what Sydney will be like.

4 metre swell and offshore in the SW today. I'm in Perth.

If you left now, you'd be there before 9.30am!
