Thanks Tassie

A low off Tasmania two days ago has thrown up some waves. You bewty! What a pleasant surprise to roll down and see head high sets this morning at Bondi. Combine that with 25-degree water and you’ve got yourself a top morning. Winds will blow NE later (15 knots). Not much shift in the tides […]

Sensational morning, warm water.


Get in. Immerse yourself in the ocean, it’s deluxe, it’s 25 degrees! We’ve got tiny waves, they’re surfable around the waist to occasionally chest high freak set. The crowd was big, we’re all enjoying the conditions. Sun was out, finally after an earlier rain squall at sunrise. Nothing significant to discuss on the surf forecast. […]

Ah yes, an offshore wind – how good is it! So good to see clean water surfaces return to Sydney after a week of onshore blasting. The clear skies aren’t too bad either. The waves dropped quite a lot overnight, but there is still a head high bump out there. Yesterday arvo was the sess, winds […]

I see Unicorns everyday at Bondi


Had enough of watching rogue tubes in Queensland? Froth levels are at an all-time high. It looks onshore up there today, so it’s safe to turn your social media back on. The airlines must have made a killing over this TC Oma. Tickets to Goldie were soaring up into the $500-600 mark. The hellmen that locked […]

Where's Oxford Street?


It’s not really beach weather at the moment. There are 3-4 footers out front, but the howling onshore isn’t doing it any favours. It’s super messy, junkie, manky and grovelly. I’m not that motivated to surf it… Next week the weather should improve, sit tight, do some work or binge on Dirty John Netflix series […]

A hint of light at 6:45am this morning on Ben Buckler, Bondi


We’re all in the wrong state of Australia, this morning, we need to be in Queensland. Noosa has pumping waves right now, and I’m talking tubes. Heaps of ’em! Get in before the storm. Tomorrow, I’m happy to be down here in Sydney as TC Oma could hit the Queensland coastline with 40-50 knot winds and […]

Island Recap

There’s a storm in Sydney and the beaches are ugly. I’d love to be able to get in my car and go to the west side of this big island, Australia – but I don’t have that kinda time up my sleeve. Oahu was so good for stormy alternatives, the North Shore is ALWAYS stormy, […]

Sol, lip flicks and funny facials


So dark this morning, took ages to get any shootable light. Had a coffee and all waiting for it to poke through the clouds. Waves – yes. There’s a small waist high wave with the odd bigger set. It was blowing NE this morning earlier, but now the Southerly has hit and will increase to […]

Little Leo navigating through the underwater turbulence


What a top morning. In fact, what an epic beach weekend. You all look a little browner and more relaxed than you did on Friday. I hope you spent the whole weekend down the beach! I did. This week looks like another good beach week with a twist. There’s a big mutha cyclone swell lurking […]

Rock Hopping

I’m back from The Rock. It was always going to be a quick trip. Love that joint Hawaii, but love it more when the conditions are firing. Can’t score every time. Bondi had waves this morning, some four footers out there. The shallow bank at South Bondi was pounding and heaps of close outs. Not […]

Local shoot, freediver, Asia


I’m in Hawaii, and it’s been a different kinda trip. I usually plant myself on the North Shore and only cover the golden mile. Ok, mainly I just shoot Pipeline, as the light, talent, waves are some of the best on the planet. This trip we’ve had Bodhi’s 50-year storm…and it’s blown the North Shore […]

Makapuu nuggets, Hawaii


The 30-foot waves and 90-knot gusts have faded, and all is slowly returning back to normal on Oahu, Hawaii. Hell, we might even get a trade wind tomorrow. The island is in clean-up mode as they repair from one of the most ferocious storms I’ve witnessed. Some beaches will need time for the sand to […]

Stormy on one side, clear on the other. Oahu is one helluva pretty island

Aloha Storm

Welcome back to Hawaii, the land of Aloha. The best thing about being on an island during a 50-year storm is that you can always escape to another side for protection from the gale force winds and 30-foot surf. Volcanes work well as a shield! At 5 pm today the swell buoys registered 38.4 feet (@17 […]

Noah, tucking in.


Everything has been washed with a pink tint this morning due to some cloud colours over the horizon. Like most days of this week, it’s warm, surfable, inviting, crowded. Hot weather will continue until a cooling southerly arrives Sunday. I’m heading to Hawaii today with the Aquatech crew, there’s a huge swell forecast for Sunday […]

ESE fetch

From my bank I can check the surf, that’s important to me when selecting a bank. Yesterday I was punching out some boring admin, banking, walking around with bits of paper etc…and I saw the swell leap from 1 foot to 3 foot, in a matter of minutes. It was biblical; it was beautiful, it was […]

Onboard cam, Bondi


Very still conditions at Bondi this morning. The water surface was like a sheet of glass. Tiny waves, but still contestable. 2nd Ramps had a waist high wave that looked kinda rippable. High volume boards would perform best. Heaps of traffic in the water so be patient. Hot day ahead again, 31. A beach day, hit […]

Best option - swim today, Bondi 6:30am

South Change

A micro NE swell with fresh southerlies. Things have cooled down… The beach was still relatively busy this morning after a balmy night’s sleep. Not much else to do down there other than a swim. In fact, for most of this week, I don’t reckon you’ll be surfing much. Friday looks okay…ish. SurFebruary: get on […]

I’ve been shooting a lot in the last 24 hours. Other than pumping waves, everything else was spot on. Sensational weather, warm water, big crowds, amazing sunrises and crystal clear blue water. The beach has been a hive of activity. There’s an east swell in town, small (2ft at the Bra) but the Northerlies were […]

Gentleman’s Hours

The beach is a different place after 9 am. The crowds thin after the 333 drops everyone into the city. Out come the die-hard locals who enjoy a bit of space and fewer drop-ins. Today we’ve finally got some waves to shoot – head high on sets and looking decent. The winds are kicking around […]
