Summer Supreme

These past few months the weather in Sydney has been immaculate. Day after day of glorious sunshine. A good year to build a house aye? Today was quite sumpin’ down there a 6:30am. Truckloads of people, massive packs of surfers and everyone enjoying the good weather. The waves are small, waist high – but every […]

Early

I like taking pictures. I reckon you’d gathered that by now. Taking pictures gets me up early, before most…and drags me down the beach. Some mornings are better than others down there. Today was one of the better ones. I swam before sunrise with the camera in tow. It’s like dragging a bowling ball around […]

Rippy Banks

Hiya. Got kinda big yesterday and has now calmed down. I like what I saw down there this morning. Smooth conditions, head high waves on rippy banks. Oh, it’s Monday crowds too – nice and lite. The best! This week the swell will retreat leaving waist high waves on Tuesday and Wednesday. Friday it will […]

Early Blow

It was windy early today. The cooling southerly arrived overnight. It’s around 20 knots which means you’ll need to seek protected corners. I went to the South Bra corner, which was ok. Blake was out there tearing it to shreds, but not many good ones came through. Limited options today, Manly could be good with […]

Scorcher

Hola! If you were one of the lucky ones that got up early and made it down the beach this morning you’d be happy. There were two distinctive peaks breaking…both with a waist to shoulder high wave. The heat was on early and it is going to hit 33 degrees today. No typo. 33. SMH […]

Today is officially unsurfable. 20 knots of southerly is making a mess, everywhere. It’s only 20 degrees and reminiscent of winter dayz. The wind is going to back off by 50%…so maybe a late evening session perhaps? Nice weather coming folks. 31 degrees forecasted for Thursday. Write that down. Charlotte Connell lives right near me […]

Well it started out quite nice this morning but since has turned ugly… The winds are howling, the clouds are grey and it’s raining infrequently. The temperatures have plummeted and in summary it’s a great day to do some work. Plenty of chop out there…wait until it settles. Swell being stirred up as we speak. […]

Fryday

Just too good down there this morning. The light, the warmth and them little shoulder high waves at Maroubra. Hard to drag yourself away from it… 29 degrees now. The best. Tomorrow looks amazing – hit the beach or come to the Aquabumps Gallery. With crazy rides and giant slides, homemade cakes and homegrown preserves, […]

Tiger Stripes

The surf wasn’t that impressive this morning. There’s been a swell increase but it’s junkie as hell. The skies are filled with dark stripey clouds – which should break this afternoon. Max 22 only today. Northerlies will blow all afternoon – that should clean up the waves and hopefully create some options. Busy time of […]
