Straight

The cold front has passed as the sun has returned after a brief fling with a thunderstorm. Swell is up, wind is slight offshore and 3 footers are on the loose…get out there and score your very own close out. I am sure there’s one with your name on it. I’d go now before the […]

Broken thermostat

It’s quite confusing what to wear these mornings (and I’m not talking key pieces here)…it’s stinkin’ hot one morning and then chilly the next. A south change has arrived bringing onshore cooler winds, 3-4 foot south swell and clouds. Have a onshore surf at Bondi with not many around or wait until this wind fades […]

Bakin’

What a nice morning. Cooking with warm temps early. Every man and his lycra was out doing something at sunrise this morning – hard to sleep in with all this early morning sunlight. Surfing wasn’t too high on the priorities this morning as waves dribble in at 1 foot. Perfect if you’re new to the […]

Circus comes to town

Bondi makes me laugh… At the first hint of warm weather the summer circus begins. Yesterday the beach was PACKED (with waves). The crowds brought traffic jams, parking rage, spinning rims and doof doof. This morning was no different. At sunrise a stretched hummer full of bikini clad girls pour out for a ‘Hooters’ photo […]

Game on

Oh my, what a day. The sun is blaring and a new south swell is providing the goods @ 3-4 foot. Offshore all day (with variations of westerlies)…sound good eh? BUT Bondi just can’t handle most of the waves coming through and badly requires a decent bank – so many closeouts rolling in – shame. […]

I’m baaaack

I am back from my 4 week sabbatical and pleased to find 3-4 footers down at Bondi. Yeah it was a little bumpy, dumpy and random but highly surfable and very few out. So I’ve been hearing ALL about the past 2 weeks of south swell madness. How fortunate for you. Hope you’ve scored your […]

Island Time

Maruhabaa. Looks like you’ve had some chunky south swell over the weekend in Sydney. Nice. It sounds like it wasn’t the gold-plated swell of the year though (as originally predicted). Fortunately there will be waves for most of this week as the south swell supply continues. The onshore winds may be a problem some days, […]

Hadahaa

What if I told you there is an island, a very small island that you can walk around in 7 minutes which has the most perfect beaches in the world surrounded by clear, crystal blue, salubrious 26 degree water? Would you believe me? Well this must be what heaven is like…it’s called the island of […]

U l u s

Hiya. A delayed flight meant a couple of hours to kill and thought I’d pump out a update from the island paradise of Bali. Haven’t been shooting much as I’m having a break but there were a few big sets at Uluwatu on the weekend worth raving about. Friday/Saturday saw a spike in swell at […]
