Big storm rolling through at the moment. Ocean is all frothed up with howling onshores, rain and a big ENE swell. It’s going to get really big tonight/ tomorrow – say 8 foot +, but it’s not going to be clean. 20-30 knots of blow today and tomorrow – so best wait until it dies […]

The Promise

We have a new east swell to play with. It arrived on Saturday, got bigger yesterday afternoon and will be with us all week. Dang. Best days will be around Wednesday or Thursday when it peaks around 5-6 foot at exposed beaches. After the last couple of swell drought it’s a nice surprise to have […]

Bondi Ants

That change rolled through last night leaving a micro, ruffled south swell. Bondi had a wave, well sort of…wind chop on steroids more like it 1-2 foot and barely anyone out. Overcast morning as we enter a wintery day – max 22 degrees. Winds: S/SE 13/18 kts Tides: 9:30am high tide, low tide 3:40pm. I’d […]

Lake Bondi

There still isn’t a great deal going on with the surf. Bondi was really calm and flat this morning with a beautiful sunrise (again). A fat 31 degrees forecasted so it’s another great opportunity to hit the beach and go for a swim – even though the water has dropped to a frosty 18 degrees. […]

For about 15 minutes the morning walkers were blessed with strong hues of pinks and purples. Then by 7am the technicolour visions dull to a flat […]

10 Years of Aquabumps

At this time of year the sun rises perfectly behind the waves at Maroubra. (nice and late as well before the Daylight saving switch). Some people say don’t shoot photos directly into the sun – but I think that’s the best angle. Especially with the big lens where you can fill the frame will burnt […]

Airborne

This morning I didn’t see any waves that were worth surfing. Bondi had a weak 1 foot shore break with groms crawling all over it – fine if you’re 30 kay-gees. Looks like the swell has gone more NE and could possibly get stronger tomorrow. Beaches facing the source will have something dribbling in later […]

Tony Hawk @ Bondi

When I was a kid I was big into skating. Broke plenty of bones in my left leg. Back then Tony Hawk was a big name in skating. 20 years on…he’s still a big name in skating. He’s the Kelly Slater of the grind world. Well Hawk just rocked up to the Bondi bowl unannounced […]

Morning Silk

Waves? What waves? Micro conditions today – it’s more of a lay-on-the-beach type day. Winter is looming…make the most of these joy 27 degree sunny days. There is a possibility that a shower and thunderstorm later – but should be right for the after work swim + beer + roll on the grass. Tomorrow is […]
