Ian Wallace, basking in the morning sun

Morning Sparks

I sat on a rock this morning for a good hour watching 20 odd crew pick off some nice little waves. It’s only 2-3 foot and breaking tight in the corner amongst the morning glare – fun and consistent. There are more lefts than rights but I think that will change as the tide pushes in. The water is 18 degrees, which um, is OK, but the dash from the car park will wake you up.

It’s not going to get any bigger than this, in fact it will start to decline into a swell-less weekend. Winds are offshore westerly and a lot lighter than recent days. Enjoy it kids…

Le Aquabumps Gallery is open 10am to 6pm both Saturday and Sunday for all your blank wall filling needs.

  1. Been a fan of your site for a long time but that first pic is as good as it gets for me… nice one!
    Quick questions, I’ve got 3-4 old boards that aren’t really worth the time, money or effort to sell, since your the man in the know, are you (or your readers) a where of any charities that i can donate these boards too. I want them to go to a good cause and my Google machine doesn’t seem to be giving me the right answers?

  2. Thanks for tuning in Dave. Yeah that pic of Wal is pretty good me likey. Light is good at the moment. Mate not sure which charities take boards – st vinnies on hall street Bondi? ::uge

  3. Hi Uge, I live in Western Australia and love looking at all your photos. They are just brilliant. Next time I visit East coast I will be sure to drop into the gallery and will probably be even more blown away. Just a quick question though, what housing do you use for your 5d mark II? I want to get one before summer and spend a lot of time at the beach photographing. If you could send me a link or something I would greatly love it.
    Love your stuff mate. Have a good one.

  4. We don’t comment all the time – cause we like to save them for when you really deserve them. Today is one of those days – with the first shot of Wal absolutely amazing. Tell Wal he’s only got a few more years of hogging all the waves – then it’s my turn. JWT.

  5. Love the angles in the bunny hoppin shot – looks like he kept goin skywards out of the shot.
    Water this morning was exactly as you describe: beautiful and refreshing in (no wettie required) but fffrrrreeezing sand to run across! Hope it stays like this for some time yet.

  6. Great shots today, your photographic skills are superb……As the sister of surfie brothers and nephews I am enjoying your emails.

  7. WANTED – Unwanted Surfboards
