Firstly I hope everything is OK after last night’s violent hail storm in Sydney. It was truly unbelievable. Worst hail storm since the famous 1999 lashing that took down many insurance companies. I was stuck at home whilst the tin roofs lit up like firecrackers.
Also in 1999, I started Aquabumps – nearly 20 years ago! (anniversary is March 2019) Thank you for reading Aquabumps. I never dreamt a hobby from my cubicle-bound city job would grow into so much more. We now employ 10 humans and it keeps me off the streets. Often I get emails from readers that have been on this daily post for the entire journey – stoked – thanks – that’s amazing!
Special thanks to the ‘Bumps team in the gallery, you guys keep me shooting and out of the office. Thanks.
Thanks to Google Pixel, Dropbox, Canon, Destination NSW, Australian Ballet, Air New Zealand for working with us this year. Also a round of applause for Aquatech (my water housings), Academy Brand, Nche wetsuits + Global Surf Industries.
I’m gonna pack the car full of kids and boards, take some time off and rest my lens eye.
Merry Christmas and may 2019 be full of swells and stoke.
