Don’t really know what to write today. Surf is as bad as it gets – onshore, small (1-2), overcast…no one out. You’d have to be very unemployed/bored to go surfing today. There is hope – as the swell is going to double/triple by night fall. But I am sure the predicted 30 knots of southerly […]

After tools down yesterday, a swim seemed like a good idea seeing it was 28 degrees, sunny and hell – it was packed. Around 5:30pm a sinister thick black cloud seeped over south Bondi peninsular. Within 10 minutes the joint was under seize from howling winds, hail, rain and cooler temperatures. One of the bigger […]

fools goldAt day break you would have rocked over the hill and saw lines stacked into the bay. Dang. 4 foot solid. But after spending 10 mins watching the sets you would’ve realised its fools gold today at Bondeye. Damn straight. South swell. Unrideable straight-handers. I barely saw a wave that didn’t closeout. So what […]

The swell is here and waves are up around the 5-6 foot mark. I have to say though, it’s pretty wonky and requires grooming from the early westerly offshore. Didn’t really see many good waves that didn’t close out or pork up along the beaches in the east (7am to 9am). Combined with an approaching […]

pacific gold The anticipated swell that every one’s torkin’ about is starting to trickle in. Wasn’t there when I shot between 7am and 8am at Bondi – nope…but the early morning high tide was hindering its grunt. A patient man will score today, as the ENE swell increases in period/size later and should be fun […]

FattiesThat fat high tide (8:30am @ 1.8m) was concealing most of the good small swell we’ve currently got. Once again, surprisingly, waves are 2 foot – tipping close to 3 foot at the moment, and as the tide backs out it should only improve. Bondi was very fat and slow…Low tide 3:18pm. I expected it […]

It seems when you get famous…you just walk around the beach all day with a couple of hotties on your arm – you just do. Just bumped into ex World Surfing Champion and King of the come-backs OCCY @ south Bondi 5 minutes ago. He’s quit the tour and opted for a life in TV […]

Not much happening down the beach this morning. A small SE swell producing 1-2 foot waves. You’re probably wondering why the first shot is power grom perth Standlick belting out for the high heavens then…let’s just say there’s a big difference between the little guys surfing and ours. Oh and he’s surfs all day – […]

Happy Valentine’s day girls. This is the last website update from Margaret River, the Wine Region…swell is fading fast… yesterday still had some 2-3 footers at mega exposed breaks. All day offshores and super clean surf in the afternoon…no one out mid week here…no one…kinda freaky, especially shooting in the water a few beaches up […]
