laze …and so there’s obviously no surf to be had today. Well not that I could find (its coming from the NE). The weather is supremo at thirty-degrees, perfectly sunny and worthy of an early evacuation from work. Enjoy now as a south change will hit later dropping the temperature maximum by 10 degrees to […]

nope nothing here … The surfs gone pretty much flat today, so most of Sydney would barely have a wave over knee height. After a brief interlude of showers overnight the sunshine backed out producing favorable swimming conditions at 23 fat ones. Inspecting the buoy charts this morning brings bad news – we pretty much […]

COSMO/VENUS swimsuit shoot world record Bondi is pretty well known for its girls. Lots of them. Peak summer, you’ll find a few dozen parading around in the north end, big sunnies and all. They’re usually flanked by a mass of creepy guys wearing even bigger sunnies, lacquered in baby oil (e.g. Karl) Well today Bondi […]

excess baggage It was complete chaos down at Bondi this morning as we fang down the highway into Summerville. At 6am the beach was packed with sweaty frothas shedding winter excess baggage… just in time to squeeze into that summer cozzie. The surf was also manic at 7am. I saw about 45 guys on one […]

earlybirdWhat a Aquabumps report out before 9am? Get back on your chair. No more south pacific junkets amidst mini island paradises. Nope. Gotta say Bondi turned on a little piece of its own paradise this morning. Glorious sunrise at 5:30am, clear skies (no haze), no wind and a small south swell producing 2-3 footers (some […]

PacifcoBulla. Last report from this 4 hectares of paradise. Another perfect day up here with best waves of the week. Hell you know it’s good when all the island staff (including the owner) are out surfing. Namotu has a good selection of waves that will suit everybody from fast pipey rights to cruisy Mal-lefts. The […]

black skiesStorms have hit the little island paradise of Namotu (Fiji) thankfully bringing swell. Big patchy dark spots in the sky creating unusual lighting conditions for shooting. We surfed a wave magnet reef that was super shifty and 3-4 foot. Loads of fun to be had. Nothing better than surfing in boardies again. From my […]

LazyStill remarkably flat here in Fiji but the good weather continues to power on – just like Sydney. So I guess we both have to find something else to do. Paddle boarding seems popular on the 1 footers. Tick. Walk around the island. Tick. Dunnit (hey only takes 7 minutes). Swim time. The water is […]

island locoA tiny swell still tortures Fiji at the moment, but the water holds its superior clearness. Max 2-3 foot here today – nothing mega. I’ve been told to "diversify my interests" by the fishing guide. Still plenty to do in this aquatic playground… Yesterday, a hand full of pro kite-boarders on the island hit […]
