Merry Xmas.Merry Christmas to you all and may 2007 be a cracker year full of good swells. Sydney continues to have freaky cool weather and 1-2 foot surf (yawn)…so let’s not talk about that as its depressing. Over here in Western Australia it’s a heat wave with crystal clear water! (um but still no waves) […]

good cracker.Well what do ya know… We’ve got waves today. They’re not perfect. But when you’ve been wondering around in the desert for the past few weeks and come across a cracker – that cracker will be the best damn cracker you’ve ever had. Bondi had waves breaking around 3 foot. Some had a wall. […]

Blow. She’s about to blow 20 knots from the south. That’ll put an end to the joy weather of late. It will also bring a new swell. Should be 3-4 foot by the afternoon flanked with onshore winds. This morning was real small weak stuff. (1 – 2 foot). Small period wash not really worth […]

There’s a couple of nice lil’ peaks out there this morning. Not too shabby at all. Perfectly sunny, clear water and the occasional 3 footers rockin’ in. Long waits in between sets. Add northerly winds and you’ve got yourself a pretty good day ahead. High tide 07:21, low tide 14:02. The groms were frothing this […]

Hobbies.My mate Dave has a shrink. His shrink reckons he needs more hobbies. Why? ’cause when the surf gets this baaaaad, he gets nervous twitches and seriously needs to find something else to do. The surf is baaad today. Real baaad. Not only is it overcast & wet but its not even breaking. So if […]

health-kick. Bondi is famous for the big sunny wearing, made up, glamour morning joggers…all polished with matching trackies, big ear rings and a poodle boot…its all about the "be healthy" revolution kids. Well not this morning…plenty taking this festive season very seriously… +30sizzles. From what started as an overcast sloppy day, it’s sure fining up […]

Relief.About time… Some decent little waves worth riding this morning. It’s far from perfect with lots of bump…but hey at least there’s couple little pockets to get you going. The southerly winds have now subsided…and the swell is starting to fade. You’ll find waves up around head high on sets…so. um…surf. Winds will swing NE […]

volatile.What? 30 sizzles yesterday, top of 19 degrees today and then forecast for 31 on Thursday? Now that’s a bit freaky. The South change yesterday brought rain, wind and 4 foot of mush. Definitely forget surfing today. It seems like ages since Sydney has cranked…winds swing NE Wed arvo. Onshore until then. [email protected] today’s pictures […]

silly season. Watched a fare avoiding drunk guy get chased around Bondi park for 10 minutes this morning…cabbie in hot pursuit hurlin’ abuse. Thats just about the most action I saw down there this morning. Like something out of Benny Hill. Hope his ride wasn’t from Penrith. Silly season in full effect. Not much chop […]

zzz.Today could quite possibly be the most boring day down the beach. There are no waves. Not much sun. Onshore. No joy. I could have told you that without even heading down the beach – ’cause I bought two new boards this week…every time I get new boards it goes flat. They haven’t even been […]

blue.Spend a few days traveling, 3 flights, overnight rolling boat ride and you’ll come across water this blue. It’s freaky. Not a day goes past where I don’t get accused of some fancy photoshop dance work on these shots. So here are five fat ones straight outa the camera. No LSD enhanced filters here. Just […]

Since the year 1999 I’ve been waking up at dawn everyday to shoot pics. ok. I may have missed a couple after a big night. But that’s 7 years honks. Possibly 2000 early mornings. No golf clap please. No medal required stirrers. I’ve seen more sunrises than a DJ in Ibiza. yeah. and my point […]

patience.Patience has never been one of my virtues. Should it be one of yours, you’d probably enjoy a small wave at exposed south facing beaches this morning. Big long waits in between sets (yawn). They’re only breaking around waist to chest high when they do rock into town. But hey, the water is clear ‘n’ […]

summer? So we’re officially into summer now – so how ’bout it huh? Where is the bake? Only a wussy 22 degrees today as we have another wintery cool flash back. The weekend’s onshore winds have whipped up a messy 2 – 3 foot wave down at Bondi. It’s worthy of a paddle with the […]

Woowee.how good is this weather? Lap it up. And what…a little 3 foot peak at south facing beaches with north easterly winds. Stop it. Bondi had some real fun ones earlier today on a couple of distinct peaks. Massive crowds. Loose the wettie to the warm water (20 degrees) but don the crash helmet as […]
