Morning glory! Bondi Beach at sunrise today

Sublime Saline +

Today’s morning swim was very fruitful. Not only did the sky spit out some pretty colours, we still have waves. I decided to shoot the middle and avoid the south end rapid/rip. Lots of crew out, pretty chaotic at sunrise. I only got run over 3 times today (which is good for me). Water temperatures […]

Climate Strike

It’s been an interesting week down here on the beach. Rain for most days, but yesterday arvo a very short window of pumping surf and salubrious sunshine. Today it’s returned to the junkyard and it’s relatively quiet. Maybe we’re all heading down to the #climatestrike (hope so) where the kids are sending a message to governments for meaningful […]

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 […]

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 […]

Return to the South

I’ve returned to the south hopefully in sync with a new SE swell which is overdue. This morning was showing promise of a 2-3 foot set, but the 6:40 am high tide was concealing any decent bumps. Wait for lower tides and I reckon there will be something. Clear skies. Colder in the water (or […]

City Salt

I can remember when I started shooting Bondi daily (nearly 20 years ago), people would go “Why would you want to shoot Bondi every day…?” Take a look at the clarity of the water in the above shot, the colour of water…that’s why and it’s so close to an urban centre. How could I not? […]

Retro at it's best on Hall Street

On-shaw

It’s pretty grubby out there. That nemesis onshore is ruffling our little 2-3 footers. Cloudy morning with very few people around – hope the sleep in was good! Not much to write about or shoot today… Weather is warming up towards the end of the week – beach time! :: uge
