The search for a man feared drowned off Sydney's Bondi Beach will continue into a third day after authorities failed to uncover any sign of him.
The 22-year-old man was one of two Japanese nationals who got into trouble after going for a swim in rough conditions about 5.30pm (AEST) on Monday.
Lifeguards pulled one of the men to safety, but the second man failed to resurface after being hit by a large wave.
A water and air search for the man continued on Tuesday but strong swells made it too dangerous for divers to become involved, a police spokesman told AAP.
The search was again wound down on Tuesday evening due to fading light.
It is set to continue again on Wednesday at first light.Police would not comment as to whether the search and rescue operation would move to a recovery effort.
