Goodbye 2010

This is the last Aquabumps update for 2010. I’ve taken thousands of shots and today I’m showing you some of my favourites taken this year. You can see more of 2010’s best at this link. It’s been a big year. I still spinout when I think that this little update started in 1999 just sending […]

bump

Hiya. There’s a little wave out dere. Bigger and cleaner than yesterday. Not smoking but surfable(ish). A few of the larger 3 foot sets were showing promise, but the banks weren’t doing much. I reckon it will improve with the incoming tide. High tide 10:20am, low tide 5pm. 1.5 days left of shopping – If […]

Boo.

An severe drop in swell energy and early morning southerly has ruined your plans of a good wave this morning. After yesterday’s delights we now have 1-2 foot onshore junk. Pass. Nice day though, 25 degrees. Tomorrow ‘may’ have a little bump with NE winds, other than that it’s going to be a Christmas of […]

reprieve

What a difference 24hrs can make. We’ve gone from Lake Bondi flatness to 3-4 foot pumps in 1 day – hooray! Finally something to wet your appetite…it’s not perfect, bit fat, could be bigger, but in comparison to recent times – gold! So many south facing beaches would have a little wave today…if you’re already […]

Static

Very rare to see the ocean this flat. I know sometimes I say it’s tiny, or flat and there still is ankle biters or knee cappers….well today when I say it’s flat, there’s basically no movement in the ocean at all…like a lake…caputo…zip…nada…pancakes. It actually looked quite odd…can’t remember the last time it was this […]

Com se com sa

There was a little sumpin’ flappin’ around out there, but I didn’t think much of it. The left more towards the middle had the odd wave worth slaying, other than that – junk. At least the water temperature has come up. So the dribbles of this east swell will dissipate as the day progresses. The […]

Good Morning

Nice’n’calm, still morning. Barely a ripple to surf and yep, there’s 10 human torpedo’s in the southern corner causing chaos. I reckon it’s more dangerous today than 6-8 foot days. Those china made mini mals can kill. It’s hot’n’sticky 28 now, but a south storm is approaching. Can feel it getting darker as I write […]

observations

The plague of small swell continues. Bondi had 1-2 footers and is still very weak (windswell). Not much else to see down there – apart from a whole pile of people. Nice weather, max 27 degrees, maybe a thunderstorm later. Pretty flat until some good stuff arrives next Monday/Tuesday. Sit tight. Most of you probably […]

The Early Bird

It’s not often you’ll get a daily email from me this early – nup. I guess it’s a combination of no decent waves to photograph today and an abundance of early light for the insomniacs (me), so I’m ahead of my usual schedule. Yesterday the wind finally swung south, this is good. A) it means […]
