Illawarra Flybys

Today I’ve flown 200 clicks down the coast to give you a broader surf report. Tough job – I know. Soon drones will probably do my job, and I’ll sleep in. (Drones didn’t shoot today’s photos – btw)

Heading south from Wollongong it’s spectacular to see all the beaches from above. New South Wales is blessed with many nooks and crannies along its rocky coastline. It’s like our coast is a cracked eggshell, splintering off into hundreds of small beaches and bays. Makes for good surfing opportunities!

From The Gong to Jervis I reckon I only saw a total of 12 surfers. Waves, ok. Not as big as Sydney. I reckon a dead south swell runs on past the Illawarra. Winds up… was clean earlier. It’s a cracker sunny winters day!

School holidays are upon us if you haven’t booked your getaway with the tin lids – here are some ideas.

  1. Really enjoyed the change of photos today, thank you Uge. My family just got back to Bondi from visiting me in Spain – here it is about 34º and they just told me they are frozen. As I told you when we met, your blog helps to make me feel closer to them. Muchas gracias.
