Today was very similar to the other days of this week…south swell, little bit of wobble, Bondi was no good and closing out, Bronte seemed to have all the action. Small increase in swell today, head high sets for sure. It will fade and another swell will be due on Monday. A little bit warmer […]

Good morning

Started off a little dark this morning. Small glow on the horizon around 7am throwing out a lil’ colour which was nice. Bronte had a clean little waist to head high bump, Bondi had same-same but absolutely no banks to speak off. So bad. Most waves just closing out before you’d even get to your […]

Darko

Very dark morning out there. Couldn’t really shoot any images until at least 7am, which is very late for me. The good news is that under all this grey there are waves in Sydney, 3 footers. Bronte looked cleaner and lining up quite nicely this morning around 7:30am. Barely anyone around. Nice protection from the […]

Back in Bondi

I am back in Bondi…for a bit…returning from my Indonesian junket. The temperatures have dropped a lot in Sydney whilst I was away. Fresh mornings! If you like surfing 2-3 foot Bondi, alone. Today is for you. Barely anyone surfing and relatively empty beach this morning. Waves weren’t quite lining up perfectly, but worth getting […]

Jumpa Lagi

Today’s the last update from Bali (thankfully say some)…we leave here water logged, sun charred and relaxed. The waves haven’t been big over these past two weeks, but still fun. I see the cooler temperatures are starting to creep into Sydney so a Bali escape may be a good idea. Bali at this time of […]

Dash to Deserts

Yesterday we crossed the 2nd deepest water channel in the world, the Lombok Strait, which is 3 kilometers deep in parts. A one-hour speedboat ride from Lembongan Island will take you to one of the most famous, most fickle left-handers in the world…the almighty Desert Point of Lombok. You’ve seen it in mags, in surf […]

The Reef

Last time we ventured out to the reef the waves had gone small, waist to chest high on very infrequent sets. A good time to rest up, get a few massages and walk around this quirky little town of Lembongan Island. There is a little pulse of swell inbound which will hopefully put on a […]

Shippies

Good morning. (Selamat Pagi). Lembongan Island hosts a few surf breaks but the best wave is Shipwrecks, a machined right-hander that has a barrel on the right tide, air section (if that’s your flavour) and a fat cuttie section – good combo. It can appear completely flat for most of the day, but on changing […]

Lembongan

Today’s little 30-second escape comes from the blue waters of Nusa Lembongan, a small island that is a short boat ride from Bali. It’s like going back in time here. The villages remain unchanged, unaffected by the nearby mass tourism. There are no cars; just scooters and walking paths…so it’s kinda like an Indonesian version […]
