Icebergs launch

Submarine

Today is a celebration of the immaculate conditions underneath the waves.

Super warm water.

Impeccable water clarity.

Blaring morning sunshine.

Today is not a celebration of incredible waves! It’s tiny, but swell coming tonight. Hang in there.

Melon time!

Estate infinita

Well, that was one helluva beach weekend — one of the year’s most beautiful. With crystal clear warm water and a few small waves, I am pretty sure you’re happy with how your weekend went down. Today – not so great. One foot, offshore, and lots and lots of rain. I wasn’t feeling inspired to […]

Colourful Fridays

A lot was going on down at Bondi this morning. In fact that’ an understatement. It was a crazy combination of some of the best waves we’ve had all week, Friday (so everyone comes down), warm bath-like water, decent sunrise and One Wave (Fluro Fridays) 6th Birthday – busy! Good to see a little kick […]

Morning candy

It may be dark and occasionally rainy, but there was a left-hander worthy of a paddle at sunrise. Emphasis on the ‘was’ part. My 10:35 am surf check reveals the show is all over, for now. The SE swell from yesterday has dissipated. Do some work. KS in Sydney I can remember shooting Kelly Slater surf a Maroubra QS […]

Nightvision

Oh man, it’s so dark out there. Sydney is blanketed with thick cloud so you can’t tell if it’s night or day. It’s raining off and on again. Bondi was surfable. Waist to chest high waves, clean…fat with the early morning high tide. Long period swell is in town, 13 seconds (what tha? A 1 […]

Mystery Man

Opposites

The forecast was for 90% rain this morning. I turned my dawn alarm off, thinking of a sleep in (rare for me). At 7 am, I opened the blinds expecting darkness and it was the complete opposite. A full sky of brilliant hues, clean, high head waves. Paradise! Super nice morning, a tad onshore and […]

Grins

A lotta happy campers are rolling around Bondi at the moment. Grins ear to ear. Why? Yesterday arvo the wind blew offshore, and there were waves to be had… I couldn’t believe how quickly the ocean when from a manky mess to groomed lines, 4-5 footers. Yeeeha! Today, it’s dropped gears and the early morning […]

Intermission

At sunrise this morning there was a small gap in the wild storms. I even experienced a moment of sunshine. It was nice and neat, glassy this morning, but since then the SE is blowing, quite strong too. It’s all junked up. Heavy rain is due for the weekend! :: uge

B-ROLL

I don’t want to hear any complaints about the current weather sitch. You’ve had more than your fair share of beaming summer’s days kids! Now it’s time to wash the salt off and knuckle down to some work. It’s raining, today, tomorrow, the weekend and into next week. Waves – small 1-2 footers at Bondi […]

Yesterday. Tamarama. Paradise

Sun-Rain

Yesterday was quite a rare, windless, ultra-aquamarine, waveless, glamourous beach day. Today, its 3-4 foot, onshore, raining. Looks like the grey weather is forecast for quite a few days now. A great day to get stuff done. Crank it. :: uge

Surfacing

Underside

I reckon you’ve got about one month left of our current salubrious conditions before it shifts. April 7 daylight savings will end, the water will cool down…the humid mornings will have a chilly bite and you’ll have to dust off the wettie. Enjoy the now. It’s so good. Even without waves, a morning swim will […]

Coogee

I ventured out of the Bondi bubble this morning and landed into the flat waters of Coogee. We had some light at sunrise which was then smothered but a southerly around 8am. Waves are tiny, 1 footish. It was much better on the weekend. Hope you got some! Reminder, I’m selling a large format photo […]

Warning skies, Bondi Beach

Good times

Yesterday’s howling southerly has kicked up some decent waves – hooray! I saw some six footers out there yesterday, but today’s it half as big but double as clean. There are some great little runners on various sandbanks. It is a shame it’s so much smaller today, I’m calling it 2 to sometimes 3 foot this […]
