Today is the last photo update for 2011. Yes, another digit ticks over and we’ll be taking a few weeks break in preparation for another big year, that’ll be Aquabumps’s 13th year in operation. Yes, lucky 13 – can you believe it. What started out as a muck around photo email between my mates (in […]

This time of year you’ve probably ran out of puff looking forward gorging yourself on mamas xmas cookin’ and taking a break. I think the swell is in the same boat – lacking…weak, waist high waves broke this morning without any grunt. The high tide was so full I thought most lumps weren’t even gonna […]

You can surf in our ‘hood today. It’s small, waist to shoulder high, fat on the early tide, but rideable in the sunshine. Yes, I said sunshine. Salubrious day outside, go soak it up. Kinda strange but cool light this morning…. It’s not too late… Ok, so you haven’t bought a single xmas present. You’ve […]

Buenos dias

The good old southerly is blowing early at 20 knots. That doesn’t make for great surfing. The sky was deep tones of grey, sometimes even sprinkling. Maybe the odd down pour today… It’s 1 foot. Sorry I mean 2 foot, flimsy, weak and a little wobbly with some morning junk on it. Good if you’re […]

The Sydney Eye

MMM, another grey day here in Sydney. Looks like we’re going for a record… I can hear the pitta-patter on the tin roof now as yet another squall passes by. The surf looks small and junkie this morning – the beach relatively empty. Bondi not great, Bronte had a few on offer – but it […]

Breeze

Funny old week… Most days have been chest to head high (weak), some bigger ones yesterday (4-6). The winds have been up early most days though, puttin’ loads of chop-flop on them faces. Bronte, with its almighty huge chunk of rock at the south end is probably the pick – hiding from the wind. Bondi […]

chunk

There is swell, quite a chunky one and from the south, but it’s still not doing it. C’mon. It’s 4-5 foot, a tad too big for the banks at Bondi to handle. The flanking south winds seem to be causing havoc as well….there is plenty of junky chop out there. Bondi had a couple of […]

Fools Gold

Fresh serve of south swell is in town, it’s quite big too – like 4-5 foot, but it just doesn’t seem to want to do it. Bronte kinda had a wobbly right, Bondi was messy and well…not great…I think you need to head to the other side of the bridge, something with loads of southerly […]

hello

In the 1 hour of roaming the beaches of the east I took 4 photos. That’s odd (I normally shoot around 60). Barely anyone surfing the 2 footers on offer, the sky was dark grey and generally another quiet onshore beach day. Bondi was looking horrible with the southerly tearing it apart @ 25 knots […]
