It is the 3rd June, winter has just begun. The water temperature (22 °C) is warm and the air temperature is similar (wind chill forecast 16 °C). The sun has come out and it is warm enough to surf in a shorty or a summer wetsuit.
I’m staying over at Dave’s place at Bronte Beach. The beach faces east and its south headland shapes the premium wave, unfortunately it breaks across rocks so it’s only for board-riders who know what they’re doing.
