Tyson Millar. He's 6'5" - just so you can gauge size of the wave

Diamonds in the Rough

It’s cleaned up a lot and still pretty sizey. I saw sets in the 4-5 foot range at South Bondi. The swell is now from the SE, and we have favourable winds from the WNW direction at 8 knots. The ocean still has plenty of wonk from its recent agitation – well, it has been […]

It's blowing hard early! Icebergs 7am

On-shaw

Similar to yesterday it’s raining, onshore and dark grey. Fortunately, there is a bit more swell today but it’s still in the two-foot range. #notpumping In a nutshell – continue to do work as you’re not missing anything down here on the beach! I’m selling some camera gear on eBay, click below:

Benny Buckler and a textured sky

HI-RES

Quiet, warm, small, still… That’s how I’d summarize this morning. Some cool textures in the sky…but that’s about it! All these images, including the long lens shots, are taken with a Phaseone Trichromatic 100mp setup. Not a new camera, something I’ve had in my kit for decades, but usually only rip it out for tripod […]

Stairway to heaven, Bondi this morning around 6:15am

Autumn Hues

Dang! Fantastic start to the day. A feast of colour above Bondi…wow! After 20 years of getting up early, stalking sunrises…today’s show ranks pretty highly. It always blows me away how short lived it was – seconds really. Surf – not great, limping 1-2 footers with a large crowd out. If winter puts a smile on your […]

A good old tubey in front of the pavilion. Bondi 7-sumpin'

Seductive

Ah Autumn mornings, they’re the best! I reckon it’s the water temperature that gets everyone down the beach. It’s just so inviting… A few little waves with a huge (hungry) morning crowd. Be careful out there. It’s kinda like driving down the road, but everyone is running the red lights. Nice looking weekend ahead. Small NE […]

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

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 […]

It’s your year!

It’s been a while since we’ve been in touch. Hope you had a good break (or still on a break). New Year’s Day – Bondi kicked off 2019 in top gear – January 1 was a full-blown beach day. Every beach was crammed with beachgoers hungry for a cooling off. I’ve been touring northern NSW […]

Italy last week, a quick tour

Rebound

I’m back. Well kinda, the head is incredibly foggy with a jetlag curtain pulled down tight. I thought a Bondi swim would shake things up after a couple of days of travel. The 16-degree water sure was a shock after paddling around in The Med. Waves, yep. We got some. Waist to chest high variety […]

Watch
Well, another cracker start to the day!

Start

We’re having a fantastic run of colour in the mornings. Looking out the window right now, staring at dark grey clouds and rain, you probably wouldn’t believe me! Lucky I nailed some photographic evidence. The colour didn’t hang around long though…blink and you’d miss this one. Our Underwater Dance series featuring The Australian Ballet in […]

Dude what globes you using? They're bright. Tamarama

Hottie

Quite confusing what to wear in the mornings, the weather has been all over the shop. This morning at sunrise was teeshirts only. Small confused north wind swell is in town, the odd 2 footer. Nothing special. The biggest news of the day is that it’s gonna heat up to 25 degrees – beach weather […]

Surface blow, Da Bergs

Blow Back

10:05pm, Thursday night…THAT’s when the wind will subside. That’s when the surf will clean up and you’ll be busting out of the gates to get a week’s worth of waves. Be patient.  If you’re frothing I suggest driving over to Manly, that will be outta the wind and clean. Friday will be a good surf […]

Mixed Bag

Today’s a hybrid, a mixed bag between Bondi, Curly and Mentawais. There’s no correlation between these locations, they’re just some JPGs lying around on my desktop from recent shoots. A rainy, cold, junkie day is a great opportunity to show a mixed bag. I’d expect to see waves above 4 foot today at Bondi, but it’s going […]
