Well that’s it for another year – Aquabumps 5th year. What started as an email to a few mates has now grown rapidly to be viewed by approximately 16-17,000 per day all around the globe. It was a big year for this site… To wind up this year I thought I’d include some of my […]

Hot night last night – the heat was thick until the welcomed minor south change rocked in cooling the town down. This morning the new winds mashin’ up what little surf we have on offer this morning. Bondi was max’ing at waist high. Very messed up [and I’m not talking about Jamie Mann]. It’s no […]

Nice surprise this morning with some juicy lil’ waves down Bondi way. Average wave height around waist to chest high with larger sets up around head high. Inviting conditions with barely any wind, silky smooth surfaces and ultra deluxo warm water. These southern bumps are on the decline so an early sess is the go […]

See bullet points for more details: A small south swell is producing surfable waist high waves with the odd freak set around shoulder high – but you’ll have to be very patient in flat patches. Decent banks. The water is crystal clear. Clearest I’ve ever seen it (Mentawaiesque). Water is also a perfect temperature – […]

Huh-wot? <Insert vague look> Bet ya there’s some dusty heads around the traps today after a turbo charged silly season weekend…especially for the odd 2000 cats that rocked up to Bondi Pavilion yesterday for the Tsubi/Modular Christmas extravaganza with WolfMother (they cranked), Sneaky, Cut Copy, Vanshe… Got some classic snaps.

This morning I cranked up the new pole to get elevation for some different angles – heavy sucker. Surf Report: Not much happening in the wave department – around 5am there were a few (so I’ve been told), but at 7am it fizzled out and I could only find a waist high shorey which wasn’t […]

Our SE swell is rapidly running out of juice as it drops overnight. Bondi is still very surfable at 7:30am with waist to chest high waves frequently popping up. Seriously chaotic large crowds in and out of the water enjoying this sensational summer’s morning. Light winds tending moderate northeasterly in the morning and freshening near […]

When you’re in the desert and some one throws you a cracker – it’s the best damn cracker you’ve ever had. Today Hui threw us a cracker with 3-4 foot wind swell generated from last night’s powerful south change. In contrast to the ankle biting dribbles we’ve had of late…it looks like a fun…even if […]

Your toughest decision today should be what colour Aquabumps tee to buy – not to surf or not to surf. Waves are pretty much non-existent this morning with shore slappers (and I’m not talking about Sammy and Mannie standing on the waters edge). Every 10 minutes a waist high set rocks in breaking right on […]
