Good morning. I am back from Kiwiland (thanks Cuzis) and pleasantly greeted with a new south swell. Bondi was a bit out of control (that means it’s above head high) and Bronte played host to some decent 4-5 footers. Looks like all that wind that blew yesterday stirred up some fruit. If you are not […]

Beached as…

Kia ora (just one last time). Yep, this is our last photo update from this good looking part of the world…New Zealand. We’ve returned to the photogenic town of Piha, a swell magnet close to Auckland that is well known for its huge rock in the middle of the beach. Lion rock works as a […]

Quiet

Living in Bondi, a very busy area, you really appreciate the quiet of New Zealand. Most surfing destinations these days are pretty full on, Bali is choccas, Hawaii – busy with pros, Byron – loaded…you have to go pretty far to get solitude, normally, but in N-Zed you can drive to Muriwai Beach (40 mins […]

ANZAC

New Zealand is a small place but has plenty of surfing options. Been here for 4 days now and we’ve found waves every day. Have to admit, we’ve got a good surf guide, Maz Quinn (Jay’s brother), who is the only surfer in NZ to make it on the world championship tour a while back. […]

Ruapuke

Today’s daily slice is broadcast from a beach called Ruapuke, a scenic 30 minute dirt road drive from Raglan (that’ll be New Zealand kids). Today is the smallest day of the week and we only found 2 footers, with the odd 3 footers (on the incoming) along a pretty much deserted volcanic black sand beach […]

The land of heavy reef breaks, no parking meters and hometown for many surf talents like world champion Mark Occhilupo, Matt Griggs, Kingy, Mick Marjanovic, Terapi and master lens man Jon Frank. Good setup down here, so many surfing options. Today we’ve got a decent East swell […]

Shelter

Well look at that…an Aquabumps update being posted out at 3pm. Now that’s late. Back in the old days that used to be a common occurrence before we became the well-oiled machine that we are today. Where have I been? Well I found myself wondering the streets of the city around 9am, wearing a collar […]

Monsoon

In between rain squalls I took some photos down the beach this morning. Sometimes I only got 10 minutes reprieve to stick a lens out and try and some snap some gold for you. One of those downpours was like standing under a water fall. Heavy. My car is sparkling clean though…with all that crusty […]
