Lunar Burn

Good morning to the good people of Aquabumps. Today has all the right ingredients, clear skies, warm air and light winds. It’s a good day to have off, middle of the week, go chill down the beach.  Stuff like that… 32 banging degrees on Friday – now that’s another day you should have off. Benny’s boardroom, […]

The Blake Show

Meet Blake, Blake Thornton. He’s a good surfer and good bloke from Maroubra who’s doin’ well on the WQS at the moment. Like a 5th in The Margaret River Masters, 25th in the Quiky Pro (Durban) and a 3rd in the O’Neill Highland Open in Scotland. 24 year old Blake’s dream is to make the […]

Boomers

Yesterday was pretty special down at Bondi. Good times…this consistent new south swell is full of grunt and paired with a northerly wind – just perfect. Unfortunately it got too big for Bondi this morning and was predominantly closing out (and its still getting bigger). The peak in the middle was the better option. Its […]

wag

It may be your first week back at work but today is a great day to wag work and bake it out of town. Bondi and surrounds don’t look like they have much going on, but somewhere is going off with 3-4 footers at East facing beaches (and NE winds)…you’re dreaming if you think I […]

Eastern exposure

There are waves today at east exposed beaches. Good waves. With a 9-10 second period, the power might tweak up a little. I’d say it’s one of the better days this week but you’ll have to get out of Bondi – which is neglecting the energy source. A bakin’ 28 degrees is forecasted for today. […]

busy

It a very busy time of year for most people. Christmas is coming and everybody wants everything finished before Christmas. But there is one thing you should try and squeeze into your busy today… that’s some time down the beach. Not only is it a stunning beach day, sunny and 24 degrees, but there are […]

Overload

What a morning… To kick it off at 5:15am the morning sun cooked a thin cloud hanging over Ben Buckler. The colours were exceptional. Combine that with clear skies, a summery maximum of 28 degrees and a fortunate north wind/south swell mix – and we’re having one of the best days in a long time. […]

Late transmission

Sorry about the late update. Good waves today. A good for me way to gauge if there are good waves is that my daily shots only take 20 minutes – instead of waiting 2 hrs for a freak set. Peaks all over the place today…4 foot this morning and at 2pm (when I last checked […]

waves

Well that’s something we haven’t seen in a while – waves. Good ones. Bondi was a playful 3-4 foot this morning and the rain has even stopped. Good time to go for a paddle seeing it’s blowing offshore and the crowds are low. In fact all weekend should be pretty decent so I would head […]
