Wave House

Howdy. Merry Christmas all. Hope you had a good one. If you’re a surfer in Singapore you’d go mad. The place it one big shopping centre with 400,000 expats running around the joint. Should you require some board time, you either have to jump over the back fence to the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, or […]

The year that was…

Well that’s it for another year. This is our last communication until 2010. Thanks for reading this salt crusted update from the beach…I still can’t believe there are so many of you interested in it as I’ve never marketed it – you just came by or a mate stuck you on it. What started out […]

stunted

Hard to believe Christmas is this Friday – where did this year go? Looks like many have fled town for their summer holiday…Bondi was remarkably quiet(ish). Hell you might even be able to find a car park along Campbell Parade. Pity about the swell. It’s tiny and from the NE, sooo not suited to Bondi. […]

Cirrus

On 1st light it looked flat out there…but around 8am I saw a mini-pulse push in the odd wave. The school-holiday-groms were all over it. 1-2 foot today, sunny and hot. 29 degrees. Seeing most of you are on holidays – hit the beach, it’s a good one. Thin, wispy, high altitude cirrus clouds show […]

Rabbits

Howdy. Nice mornin’, pity there’s not much to surf…say 1 foot, with a weak 2 foot bomb set. Bondi seems all quiet…everybody is either on holidays and left town, or still recovering from the weekends Christmas parties. This week there will be nothing substantial to surf – take the mal out. It’s a typical summery […]

The Random Foto Show

It’s been raining since I rolled outa bed and the surf is pretty uninspiring – so foto opps are minimal this morning….hence the random archival revival. I’d say 2-3 foot at east exposed beaches (e.g Zee Bra)…the odd 2 footer at Bondi and barely anyone around. This weekend’s forecast is for no waves. Join in […]

Blind

I was down the beach pretty early this morning. Think it was 4:30am. Nuts I know. I tell you what though… there’s plenty of nudity down there at that hour. Upon arrival I saw 1 girl and 4 guys posing nude for photos in suspect poses. Looked like sumpin’ outa ‘Eyes Wide Shut’. Looking down […]

Pod

Definitely not a surfing day… Lake Bondi had a 0.5 to 1ft dribble…with the odd 2 foot freak set. A pod of dolphins were having a Christmas party in the bay. They hung around for an hour or so, weaving in and out of surfers legs…puttin’ on a show. The early morning clouds have now […]

Shorey Glory

It’s small. Mainly just a shorey slappin’ on the beach. So small even Jono (AKA the mad professor) was soft sand jogging and not surfing. Now that’s small – that man can sniff a 1ft set out of Lake Bondi any day. Mighty fine morning though, after the early clouds dissipated we’re left with clear […]
