We’re lucky to have some small NE wind chop dribbles this morning. You’ll find the odd waist to chest high wave at exposed beaches – whilst south facing Bondi was throw’n out a couple knee to waist high surfable ones. It’s a weak swell generated from yesterday’s wind. It’s going to be a great day […]

I won’t mess around with words cause only one word comes to mind when I ventured over the hill to cop a sneak at Bond*age – crapola. Onshore easterlies are lettin’ rip and the weak remnants of a swell were butchered. So you can totally forget about it. I thought you’d much rather see a […]

You’re kiddin right? More chop suey than Golden Century. It’s about as bad as it gets today…shocker howling onshore choppy bits and the rest of the week ain’t lookin’ pretty (1800 travel agent – fiji please…) Let’s talk about something else – like the fact that our 6 time world champ Layne Beachley won an […]

The old fisheye in the tube chestnut. This Bali island paradise turns it up a few notches today. I’m not talking Ku De Ta at 3am or M-Bargo…the promised swell has finally arrived after days of smallness. The peninsula lit up…lines of perfect swells queuing at multiple breaks, biggest was at Ulus 5-6 foot. Not […]

Oh yeah. I hear it’s a bit wintery back home. No waves to be found either. Well it ain’t big up here (Bali for those not on the program), but she’s warm and surfable with an inbound swell. Made my way up the peninsula in search of some bukit gold… but got lazy on a […]

There is something in Nasi Goreng that is addictive. You can eat a fair bit of that stuff…especially when you can feed a family for less than the Harbour bridge toll (beat that maccas). Today the swell is still small up here in paradise. After driving for an hour or so dodging chickens, lost in […]

Selmat pagi. Yep back in the land of warm water and tubular reefs (I can’t stay away). You’ve all been through here at one point. Bali. A magical place where you can live like king & surf world class pipes. Even with all the current travel warnings, half of Europe has moved in for the […]

Hey kids. It’s all about that summer feeling today. The waves are non existent but the sun is cooking up a glama day ahead of us (20 fat ones – feels warmer). Swell is trickling from the NE, but it’s so small surely you’ve got something else to do – go swim. Next swell due […]
