Welcome to the new look Frothers and the start of a new working week. We were lucky enough to have something worth sliding on for most of last week, but that was only if you were brave enough to venture into the winter waters. Generally, the days started off with some chilly SW winds which kept the waves clean and rideable through until mid morning, when the devil wind came to life from the SE ruining our fun.

Some standouts in the water this week were Mick Marj, getting some serious tube time "over the hill" as well as little 11 yr old supergrom Ethan Davis taking flight –  both shot by grommet photog Jeremy Shanahan. Caleb Reid again was busting the tail out most days, but it was Insight designer Ryan Hanrahan that nailed a sick air in the south corner at Bondi, lunchtime on Tuesday.

Tuesday and Wednesday look to be the pick of the bunch as far as conditions go this week. Expect a rising south swell on Tuesday lasting throughout Wednesday, with light offshore winds. It's sounding good to us. See you out there!
