Bronte, hued and relatively quiet this morning

The Cutting

Mostly a grey morning with a hint of colour. Not really any surfable waves, a small crumble at Tamarama, a log 1 footer at Bondi. You’d be OK if you hit the snooze button and slept in. The good news is there’s swell coming tomorrow which will build over the next few days. It’s all […]

Bondi Beach, earlier today, firing up

Heavens

The forecast was for rain this morning. I wasn’t expecting much of a sunrise…and thought it could mean a lazy sleep-in (rare for me). 5:15 am I could see through the blinds that the weatherman had it wrong and the skies could fire up into a blaze of colour. It’ was pretty good! See my Instagram time-lapse, […]

Summer silly season is here! Bondi kicking it up gear on the weekend

Transition

You can feel the change coming. The southerlies were in early and rain is due tonight. After a week of sunny beach weather, this week is looking quite grey. Tamarama was full of fish at sunrise, and all the surfers were called out of the water by the Drone Shark App Spotters. Four sharks were feeding […]

My little fella Jet (7) stoked on his new view.

Succession

There is something very rewarding when your children start to show interest in your passions – like surfing + photography. My little fella came out this morning for a few tandem slides with old mate Joel Pilgrim from Waves of Wellness. He’s 7 and can surf on his own these days out the back, but I […]

Circadian Rhythm

They say getting up early and exposing yourself to first light, the warmest light of the day is good for your circadian rhythm. It kicks your body clock into gear and helps regulate your sleeping patterns. I’m actually writing about a topic I have no real knowledge of so let’s just leave it at that! I […]

The good old Bergs

On-slaw

It’s onshore and surfable. It’s grey and warm. Nothing special, just a stock standard Bondi morning with junkie 3 footers. Apparently, it’s gonna disappear fast, so the morning sess is best. Born out of one man’s passion for the ocean and handmade in his garage – the perfect gift for every ocean lover. Spend more […]

Outback, Bondi Beach

Morning Salt

Good morning. It really was a good morning down the beach, earlier, but cloudy now. A small shorey had some pockets on it – I’d surf it – but there was a big crowd up early. Yesterdays shortlived 3-4 footers have faded, as we wait for the next swell  – due tonight. (yes, bonus!) My mate […]

Bondi - very busy yesterday

Relent

Oh boy, that was a big weekend around Bondi. Whenever the hot westerlies blow off the desert it feels like the whole of Sydney hits the coast. 35 degrees yesterday – and then POW! – the flanking violent southerly hit town with a bang. Fortunately, it’s gone back offshore and it kicked up some 3-4 […]
