Quite a unusual morning in Sydney – sunny then stormy. It all began with semi-clear skies and a overnight spike in swell heights. Waves are now breaking 3 foot from the south and lookin’ tidy. The early morning high tide was bit of a problem – most waves I saw at Bondi were either fat […]

Silky

Real pretty day outside (again). This autumn stuff is great. Yesterday proved the charts wrong and it turned on – 4 foot waves were on offer for most of the day with perfect gentle offshores (and sunshine). How good was that? Hope you broke free from the desk and got out there (plenty of people […]

Gold Plated Bondi

Just one of those cracker mornings out there – quite distracting sitting here in Aquabumps HQ punching out a update when I know there are 2-4 footers rolling into Bondi. It’s ultra clean with warm water and smothering sunshine. Magic! Why would you live anywhere else on a day like this? There would be decent […]

Red – eye

Before you hit reply on this daily email and demand I re-send the correct sunrise images from this morning – well, I don’t have ’em. I was circling Sydney airport when the sky blew up into strong hues…so I could only watch on, without a black shutter obstructing my view. Many say it was one […]

Spectacular day outside. One to be outdoors or better still submerged. Just like every other day this week, we have 1 footers, sunshine, offshores and warm waters. Take the longboard and paddle around in these ideal conditions. The land will hit 28 degrees today – how good is that. Just like summer. The next time […]

:: Transition

I won’t lie, trying to come up with something (interesting) to write about every morning can be hard. It’s even harder when there are no waves and the past few days have been very similar. So I spin my pen, get distracted by Facebook, go for another coffee at Gusto (3rd) or stir up my […]

The days all seem to be the same this week. It all starts off with early morning cloud that usually burns off by 8am. The winds are offshore NW and the water temperature remains a comfortable 22 degrees (boardies). The mercury will hit 25 on land and it’s perfect beach weather (yep). You’d be surprised […]

Vapour

The waves were quite unimpressive this morning. The early low tides were making the 1-2 footers flop flat on a bank, robbing you of a decent ride. I don’t recommend surfing it. The clouds, however, were very impressive. Vapour buckled and stretched over Ben Buckler like a Turneresque master piece. The weather is outstanding and […]
