burning light

Great beginners waves today, or if you like surfing boards that are fat or very long – it’s your day. Crowds are minimal and the burning light was spectacular this morning. Crisp chilly mornings, but a swim still not out of the question. Currently there are waves between 1-2 foot in the southern corner of […]

shows over

Well what a fantastic couple of days surfing. Unfortunately the grunt from the recent swell has dissipated overnight and we’re left with only 2 foot of weakness. I didn’t really see anything worth rushing out the door for this morning in comparison to Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. The swell charts show a rapid […]

double Probably half the size’ n ‘ half as good with double the crowds early this morning. But half of yesterday’s gold is still pretty good. The direction of the swell has shifted, neglecting the big bay of Bondi and moving more towards east exposed waves. You’d find waves around head high this morning, glassy […]

smooookin’

Woowee. Damn smoking morning. You wouldn’t have to look too hard in Sydney to find a decent wave at the moment. It seems so many breaks are crankin’ with this consistent SE swell and fortunate offshore wind (NW). Bondi looked a little straight due to the tad of east direction in the swell. The 7:30am […]

winter denial

Salubrious weather at the moment (big word for Monday I know). Its winter, but we’re pretending its midsummer – especially up the North Coast of NSW where the water is warmer and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. The waves could be better, swell seems to be hitting Sydney cleaner than up here…. we’ve […]

Swell has dropped off quite a bit from yesterday…there is still rideable waves down at Bondi this morning. Sets are up around 3 foot, consistent, but they’re hitting a shallow bank in the south…jacking up…and fading quite quickly. Yesterday’s onshore winds have subsided back to 5 knots (SE)…cloudy morning that should fine up hitting a […]

grainLooks like I returned just in time from WA to meet the onshore southerlies. After 3 days of joy (so I’ve heard), we’ve got 4-5 foot waves, from the south, BUT onshore and very messy. barely anyone out. My weather charts say it will swing offshore tomorrow (SW) – so best wait until then. Smaller […]

Trigg Beach

Today’s Aquabumps comes from the other side of this big island, Trigg Point, Perth – Western Australia. Trigg beach is famous for being one of the most busiest surf breaks in the world. The beach is massively long, and flat, and the banks are usually dead straight to match – but the little corner pocket […]
