bottomed out.All day yesterday I was hearing stories of great waves from all corners of this big island – Snapper Rocks to Stanwell, Margaret River to Whaley. What a great day of surfing it was in Sydney. Corka. Disappointingly today is half the size…as the SE swell bottoms out overnight. Bondi was mostly 3 foot […]

Big Wednesday.If you’re sitting behind a computer reading this email you’re in the wrong place. Sorry. Sunshine has broken out as we cook up to 26 degrees. Winds are currently W/NW. Um that’s perfect offshore kids. Winds will swing NE later today. The water is still a warm 21 degrees suitable for boardies (lap it […]

Random peaks popping up here and there – mostly closing out – but size is good. Couple of sets around head’n’half plus. Swing.By 10pm tonight this southerly […]

goldielocks. Incredible light show this morning. Deep rich golds. Wish I could say the same about the surf. It’s like 1 foot and dribblin’ in. Little bit of NE direction in the swell, but with a period of 3 its just wonky wind-chop. Loads of beginners out giving it a bash. Good day to learn. […]

6:30am – 1pm Been twiddlin’ that pen thinking about what to write about today. Those two peas are workin’ overtime. At 7am if felt like night it was so dark. The swell machine is temporarily out of order (ankle biters) and dark clouds paint a pretty ugly picture. No wind. Dead still early. Warm water […]

Dark.Damn dark in the woods earlier today. Not much to see when you get out the back. Small waves. Like waist high sets. Yesterday’s swell dissipated (see outtakes from northside sess to remind you). But it’s super clean. Barely a breath of wind. Good for a longboard dabble. Even though land temp. is going to […]

brazilians. gotta love em. No girls, not what you’re thinking. I am talking about 65 kilo, 5’6" bundle of Brazilian pocket rocket – Adriano De Souza. This flamboyant Sao Paulo shredder finished up 20th on the world tour last year (he’s only 20). 4 years ago he took out the World Pro Junior championship at […]

silk.Real tidy day kickin’ off with a burning sunrise and silky clean surfaces. Small 3 footers breaking into Bondi – well worth a paddle around 7am. But within two hours, when the 9am high tide flooded in, not much around at all. Perhaps when the tide goes back down again something will pop up. (low […]

NW winds this morning, picking up to 20 knots in the afternoon. South change will come tomorrow, mild one, can see the clouds starting to rock in […]
