I’m Back

Italy was awesome, thank you. Bondi ain’t too shabby either. I’m back. Just look out the window, what a day! Spring is here and the weather is spot on. Small waves around 1-2 foot – 1 wave came in bigger which is pictured above. It was SO good to see waves again. I missed them. […]

NZ vs AU

When I left Queenstown it was snowing, right down at town level. Amazing. Only happens twice a year. When I arrived in Bondi the colours were going crazy in the morning sunrise. Rare. It’s like they were competing. Two very special places putting on their best. We had a great time in New Zealand last […]

Change

We’re on the brink of change as strong winds and swell are predicted. It was 1 foot and cold down the beach this morning. Should be 6 footers tomorrow and howling winds. Log riders were out enjoying a solo peak in the middle. Water is decently warm, but, that dash home in the wind chill […]

Settled

It’s really calmed down a lot around here. The ocean has defaulted to it’s chilled state. Biggest wave I saw all morning was knee to waist high. It’s super clean and decent for a swim. This weekend a huge South swell is going to hit Sydney. I am talking 10 foot at magnets. Wind will […]

Chalkie

5th nice morning in a row, especially at the beach. Even better when the sky is full of colour. Hope you got down there. Small swell, mostly from the south. Bit of fun to be had. Over the weekend the swell will switch back to a ENE direction. Maroubra Big Wave freak Mark Mathews returned […]

Monday

Mondays are a favourite. The weekend’s crowds have dispersed, the beach is quiet. Monday’s are even better with waves (4-5 foot)! So many options today with a East swell. Empty line ups everywhere. Head to your local beach and there will be something for ya. :: uge

Darkness

Damn dark morning down there. Quite different to the other mornings of this week. Makes for grainy shots. There is 3 feet of south swell. That’s good for Bondi but it wasn’t breaking very well. Friday’s are the busiest day of the week. Even in the dark. I love this shot from my Rio trip. […]

Bath Time

If you don’t go for a swim in the ocean today – you are really missing out. The water is an incredible 25 degrees in Sydney today. It’s amazing. I coulda stayed out there for hours this morning. It’s like a bath. No rubber required. Waves – tiny. Sun – on turbo. Everyone is pretty […]

Reprieve

Friday was a real novelty in Sydney wasn’t it? One of those freaks. 41 degrees still at 7pm and everyone hit the beach to cool off. At 7:15pm a raging southerly tore it up and cooled it back down to humane temps. Arrgh yes, love that southerly. I took the bird out and shot most […]
