Quirky bondi

As we draw closer to summer I’ve noticed a few things around the ‘hood: • More people are up for the early. It’s not just me and a handful of surfers. Bootie camps are packed getting the rig ready for bright light. • People get boozed and pass out on the beach…always entertaining where they […]

Ramble

Hurro. Like many recent days we once again have sun, waves and now warmer temps. I am wearing shorts today and the my twigs are gonna see 24 degrees hopefully. There’s even a little wave on, the waist to chest high variety. Our newly renovated banks favour the right hander now. Good for the naturals. […]

Bras N Things

For a change of scenery I dragged myself away from The Bondi Left and headed down to Maroubra to take a few frames of local shredder Blake Thornton. Some nice little waves down there…a little infrequent…shoulder high with head high sets. Huge crowd up early at all beaches. At the moment you can surf 2 […]

9

Some days we have pictures of cars, retro architecture, sunrises and pretty girls. Today we have 9, yes you heard right, 9 images of just surfing. Why? ‘Cause it is good out there. Why 9? I think you are ready for 9. Internet speeds are improving so I can feed you more than the usual […]
