Jono, throwing out a bit of heat.


Hard to pick the surf conditions at the moment. Last night was hot fun down at Bondi, some 6 foot bombs out the back…and most of the crowds were put off by the bad weather.

Today I rolled down the hill full of hope – but it wasn’t really doing it. Junkie 3-4 footers breaking randomly along the whole beach. Hmn.

The BOM are calling heavy rain and NE winds, which is good news. Let’s hope it cleans the surf right up – but who knows. Today is the peak of the swell for the week – should hit 5-6 foot later today especially at East exposed beaches (that’s not Bondi). Watch out for blueys – they’re back and sending people to hospital.

Totally random bits to distract you from work:

  • If I lived in the states I would go here – the Surf Lodge NY, looks hot.
  • Looking forward to seeing “The Ultimate Wave Tahiti” – a 3d Movie featuring Kelly Slater at imax
  • I still can’t believe Kelly Slater, Taj, Mick and plenty others are coming to Bondi for the Boost Mobile Surf Sho – March 12-14th.
  • Join our facebook fan page. www.facebook/aquabumps why? Cause we’re getting updates out faster on it, and different content, and you we’ll make it good.
  • I’ve never been to Tassie, but hear the waves pump. Here is a little beachside joint to stay at – Bicheno
  • Local residents win against the council’s plans to develop Hugh Bamford reserve into a truck depot – more

Enough ramble. uge

Big frothy one, no where to go...

Now that's 1 way to carry your towel around.

Not sure why, but felt compelled to draw all over this shot

  1. The timing of your surfing shots has improved considerablly uge. Good work. Especially Aron Jefferys (1st shot of yesterday – perfect) – this aspect improves the quality of your site for sure. I like to see good shots of the guys who can do the photos justice – as well demonstrated today.Cheers.

    1. Thansk Garrick. I’ve been using a new camera today (which I can’t mention the type as not available yet). Basically it shoots 10 frames per second, as opposed to my odd camera that shoots 3 frames per second. What this means is I don’t miss a thing – which is great. Thanks for the feedback and good to see you out in the water last night – hope you got a few of those bombs. I had a ball (even though I only caught 3 waves and had to rush off to a dinner). Later: uge PS _ don’t know Aron Jefferys – where is he from? I shot that image in Mentawais. Hts

  2. Great shots & super sharp in shot 1 & 4. Do you mind sharing some lens info on what you shot those two images with? Cheers!
