I did not think I would write a wave wrap this weekend considering the forecast Flat. -1 ft. It did not sound very inspiring and I was not expecting much at all. What a surprise when I got two super fun surfs in this weekend.
Yes, it was small but with a mal and a bit of patience you could score a nice wave in South Bondi. Saturday was a gorgeous day, I waited until the crowds pissed off and dragged my log down for a late avo surf. It seemed like most of Bondi was in the pub watching the Rugby which left me with a perfect peak in South Bondi with only a handful of other peeps out there. I was in heaven. So much fun.
Today I thought I do the same. I wanted to hang in there until the evening to get a surf in. Because even though it was not as beautiful as it was yesterday, the surf was crowded throughout the day. You would not think so as it was only 1 ft again, maybe the occasional bigger set. But that’s what happens in Bondi especially if there is only one break working – South Bondi that is. So I waited patiently until 4.30 to drag my mal down to the beach once more and oh no – what do I see? CROWDS – no, no, no. About 40 people on the South Bank. Bummer. Oh well I was already suited up so I went anyway. Lucky, a lot of the peeps were on there short boards despite fat, small waves, so I still snagged quite a few. It was super calm until it started pissing down out of nowhere. Lightning too. I love surfing in the rain. It’s a bit eerie but awesome to be out there with the elements. After a bit of rain, the sky turned into the most amazing colours I’ve ever seen and the water surface glassed off completely. There was a rainbow so bright, it looked unreal and when you turned towards the sun the sky was plunged in orange. Even die hard surfie dudes stopped the hustle and bustle in the surf and stared at the sky in awe.
Who would have thought…even if I did not expect much, it was once more an experience to be out there. Loving it. Whoop whoop!
