H A W A i i

Aloha, I just arrived in Hawaii…wow. The north shore to be exact. Hawaii has eluded me for years – been meaning to come for a decade…I just kept on getting distracted by all the other options now available to surfers these days (we’re spoilt). It’s great to walk around here, feel like I know the […]

R i n s e

Would have to be one of the worst surf days down at Bondi this year…pretty much dead flat and damp. I am not going to show you what I shot this morning – ain’t pretty…so here is some joy from the recent Boost Mobile Surf Sho down at Bondi. The good news it can only […]

Shizzle

Hasn’t been much to surf for a few days now. The north swell neglects most of our beaches and is better north side. We had a little semi-surfable shorey at 1 foot(ish). Sets were infrequent and a paddle was more about being in the 24 degree water than surfing anything substantial. Decent sunrise, as fast […]

To Do…

To do list 23-03/2010: a) Grab a wide board and go surfing on those fattie two footers. Nice right hander in the middle of Bondi but plenty of human flotsam and jetsam out there. Wow – wear a helmet and live longer. b) 6:30pm tonight, go to “The Happening” where surf music + art + […]

Spike

A little spike in swell is puttin’ on some 3 footers down at Bondi. Unfortunately the SE wind is still on it creating a bit of bump and wobble. I thought it was going to be much bigger and better than it really is. Boo. Winds will go north later, so that will clean it […]

Strange old day out there. To start with I thought the waves were going to be orn, like it was last night. Nope. Dropped back and messed up. Bondi was predominantly closing out 2-3 foot…nothing special. A ground swell from the south will build during the day as the SE winds come up. Tomorrow looks […]

Bump

Nice little clean bump out there this morning with very few people around in the darkness (the sun didn’t pop out until 7:20am). Water is ridiculously warm, the sun is out, the wind is gentle – sounds good huh. Most waves struggled above the 2 foot mark…odd bigger 3 foot set. Shame the banks haven’t […]

ELEVEN

Hard to believe it but Aquabumps turns 11 this week. Yep. 11! Bit freaky really, can’t believe that many digits have passed and the audience has grown and grown and grown. Don’t worry, I am not going to get all emotional nor are we throwing a huge party like we did a few years ago […]

Sluggish

The ocean looked a little lethargic this morning. The swell period pushed up but waves were smaller than yesterday. Bondi had a weak, dribbly 1-2 footer at sunrise (7am)…loads of crew flappin’ around in search of their very own bump. Swell seems to be in the middle of switching from south to nor-east…as later in […]
