Served Chilled

I was quite surprised to see a small, clean swell still chuggin’ into the bay at day break. I suspect it will fade quickly though as the swell charts show a rapid decline in energy around lunchtime. There’s a nice (small) left in the corner with barely anyone out….1-2 foot. I’d say the extremely cold […]

You’d think after sending daily emails for 11 years we’d have a better handle on it…nope. You may receive two daily emails today, a colourful Lizard Island escape that was intended for yesterday and now you’ve got our back to Bondi edition. Ah yes, a well oiled machine here at Aquabumps. I even lost a […]

The Reef

Hiya, today we have a guest writer (someone who actually writes for a living)…a guy called Moose, who you’ll find down at the ‘Bergs every morning before sunrise punching out laps. Not sure if he’s actually writing about me (it ain’t this glossy) or his own life : It’s easy as an Aquabumps subscriber to […]

Lizard Island

Hi there. Sorry about the late Friday report and the lack of updates this week. If you’re 1 of our 11,000 Facebook crew you’d know we’re up in the warmer temperatures of Lizard Island for a few days. Lizard Island is 240 kilometres north of Cairns (Queensland) and is a national park area out near […]

Darko

It was just one of those days where it’s not worth even opening the car door. The wind was blowing early, the rain has already set in, the swell was small and wind beaten…nothing on offer at all. (oh and it’s quite a bit cooler). I’d like to say something like ‘no matter it’s going […]

Brief

Hi. Not much happening down the beach (again). Bondi was a weak, flappy 1 foot with 3 guys out. The storm clouds are circling and puttin’ on sum precipitation. It took me 20 minutes to write that opening line…so I might quit whilst I am ahead. Not much to talk about really. The forecast looks […]

It’s dead calm out there – Lake Bondi that is. Probably the flattest I’ve seen it in months. Completely forget surfing today (in Sydney). You’ll just be disappointed. Tomorrow same same. Sunday tiny and then finally a new south swell on Monday. Special morning. Not sure if it was the winter sunshine, the still conditions […]

Hued

Interesting morning…it’s as if someone was messing with the hue and saturation dials in my head (I’ve never been the same since I cracked my head open at Vuey – but that’s another story). 1 minute the skies above Benny Buckler were hued with intense colours, and then moments later its grey, dull and contrast […]

You’re not really missing out on anything down the beach. That south swell has lost it’s grunt and 1-1.5 footers were dribbling into Bondi early this morning. Nice sunny winter light but cold once again. The radar shows no swell energy for the rest of the week, so a good time to do something else… […]
