Standby

Nice morning. Shame the waves were once again small and weak. Grey dominated the skies and the water surfaces were silky smooth. It doesn’t look like there will be any memorable swells this weekend. Maybe a flap around on the fish or mal. Next week, well, next weeks a different story. Something cooking mid-week. Until […]

Mals only

The past two days have been small, this morning is micro. Group of mal riders in the middle enjoying a 1 foot peak and shallow bank. Such a nice morning nonetheless…a real treat to be swimming around as the sun came up behind Benny Buckler. Tengirri If you want to go to the Mentawais and […]

Not much

Like most other mornings I rolled down the hill to see what was on offer down the beach. ‘Not much’ pretty much sumed it up. It was still and quiet, the rain persuading most to stay in bed for the late sunrise. A small, rideable, weak and flimsy 1-2 footer wave broke inconsistently at South […]

I wait patiently for these types of mornings… Sometimes we get nothing for 2 months, sometimes a year goes by without any hint of gold. Every morning I stick my head out through the blinds looking for that thin high cloud with a gap along the horizon…something that will really turn on…and 9.9 times out […]

Darko

Good morning… The sun broke through super late as we edge closer to a time switch. There was a couple of floppy 2 footers around, not really worth getting excited over. You can feel the claws of winter in the morning air…it’s coming. See if you can swim faster than one of Australia’s most famous […]

Yesterday was one of those days that snuck in under the radar. Most surfers fooled by the morning howl and threatening grey skies. Around lunchtime the swell had a […]

Downgrade

Today is an in between day. A day that is not a patch on yesterday. The wind was howling early SE and making a mess of exposed beaches. The swell is not big enough to get into protected corners…so it is a good day to do something else. Maybe something indoors as it looks like […]

I’d rather be…

I crashed the car, I ate some bad chicken last night, she dumped me, I’m locked out of my apartment (since yesterday), my best friend is getting married, there’s a big client over north side that is close to signing… …these are all plausible excuses to wag work and go for a drive to find […]

Hope you saw the sunrise this morning. It was quite something. Late too – 7am. So you don’t have to be a insomniac to see it. From the car park it looked like a little bank at South Bondi had something to surf. I swam out there with my camera to give it a close […]
