Oh boy, what a difference 24 hours makes

Change

Sydney weather is like a wild ride on a rollercoaster. Belting hot moments flanked by smothering southerly cool changes. Repeat. Hot/Cold. Calm/Windy. Repeat.

Last night was stinking hot – it felt like Singapore. One helluva thunderstorm at dinner time. This morning, howling southerly onshores, 1-2 foot NE swells, empty beaches.

You’ve heard me spruiking our gallery wares for your potential Christmas gifts. Yes, it’s our busy time. This year is different, we’re super organised!  We’ve got a huge range of in-stock, ready to ship, have it now-now-now artworks and gifts. Just click here and you will see what you can get in time for Xmas, pronto!

Blown out type of morning! Bondi

Summer Blast

Last night’s howling Northerlies have kicked up some wind swell. It’s not pumping, but surfable. Bondi doesn’t favour this swell direction and tends to break more in the middle than the magnetic south end. I imagine exposed beaches today would have some joy like Manly, Maroubra, Tama, Whaley etc. If you like my images you […]

Marooned on a remote island called Ben Buckler

Marooned

Hello. Hola. Bom Dia. Ciao. I hope you’re loving this exquisite weather. Delightful ain’t it? Bondi stepped up a gear this morning…it was crazy packed at sunrise. We have visitors from all over the globe ducking down the beach to get a glimpse of our famous sunrises. Ok, some were still out from the night […]

S.U.P. domination in 1 footers

People

One of the best things about my ‘job’ is that I meet around 4-5 new people every day down the beach. As you all know, Bondi is one helluva popular beach and there is a constant flow of people, all year-around. We get all types from all walks of life. Yesterday I was talking to 1-year-old […]

Don't like sand? We have a beach for you. Clovelly

The Concrete Beach

Yesterday was a superb beach day. Not too hot, not cold. Spent a bit of time shooting down at Clovelly yesterday, our local concrete beach. If you don’t like sand or waves at your beach, Cloey is for you. Why so much concrete? During The Great Depression, Randwick Council instituted a scheme to keep unemployed […]

The iconic Icebergs of Bondi, with plenty of colour today

Planetary Alignment

We’ve had a good run the past coupla days. The surf has been pretty awesome and today the 5 am sunrise was a blaze of colour over Bondi. It’s a tad smaller today with 3-4 footers but from sunrise, it’s been super clean and hollow – pretty much everywhere I looked! Sydney loves an East swell, […]

Cooking

Bondi, Tamarama, Maroubra, Manly, Avalon Everywhere is on the cook today. The planets have aligned, Christmas has come early, the winds are offshore and the swell has straightened out (now it’s dead east). Dead east means every beach along our coastline has something cooking. The fields are full of clover – go indulge. It’s gonna drop […]

Mutants, Bronte

Boom!

Today’s quite interesting. I am not too sure what to make of it. Last night it all flipped, we now have an NE swell – and a big one. Waves look very junkie around here – but I KNOW places must be cooking right now. F.O.M.Oing quite badly here at my desk. I’d check the […]

Icebergs, Lyle procrastinating

Yeah Nah

Nothing special down the beach again this morning. Bondi has plenty of 2-4 footers but a flanking onshore is messing it up. Bondi was eerily quiet – not very summer like. Winds going offshore tomorrow, Wednesday clouds clearing. Thursday a cracker beach day. Gotta love Air New Zealand for their creativity – watch this to […]
