Critical, Blake Thornton, Maroubra 6am

Lucia Valentina

Surfing conditions have improved overnight but it’s still not cranking. The south swell is rogue and some sets broke in the 4 foot range. Bondi looked fun but I found a few at Maroubra near the stormie. Only 1 guy out – Blake.

If you donated to our Aquabumps SurfAid Cup team – THANK YOU. We raised $24,000 for Surfaid which was by far the most cash out of all the teams. Total funds raised on the day was $140k. We really appreciate the support. We came second in the SurfAid Cup for surfing…even with Owen Wright on our team! Watch Video

Today is Melbourne Cup and by the look of my subject title today you can see I am all for Lucia Valentina winning – all based on the name. Melbourne Cup is one of the rare days I’ll wear a suit (and normally lose the jacket)…MJ Bale are offering 25% off for Aquabumps readers so you can look your best for Cup day 2015. Just enter ‘AQUA25’ when checking out in their online store.


P.S. Today’s blurry shots are inspired by the days events.
