Icebergs, quiet and under a cloudy sky this morning

The Good Stuff

Really, REALLY nice morning. Kind of had it all… Decent little colourful sunrise, head high waves, warm water and a massive morning crowd both in the water and on the beach. Bondi was in sunrise hyperdrive. Sweaty lycra, Instagrammers, hungry surfers, morning dippers…such a hive of activity. The funny thing is, it’s just for an […]

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 […]

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 […]

Happy Mondays

Mondays are the best. They’re even better when it’s 30 degrees on land, 24 in the water with a generous East swell pumping into all nooks and crannies of Sydney. Today you’ll find a wave, not big, but fun. Maybe chest high ones with a lower crowd factor. In fact, most of this week should have […]

Best option - swim today, Bondi 6:30am

South Change

A micro NE swell with fresh southerlies. Things have cooled down… The beach was still relatively busy this morning after a balmy night’s sleep. Not much else to do down there other than a swim. In fact, for most of this week, I don’t reckon you’ll be surfing much. Friday looks okay…ish. SurFebruary: get on […]

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 […]

Circadian Rhythm

They say getting up early and exposing yourself to first light, the warmest light of the day is good for your circadian rhythm. It kicks your body clock into gear and helps regulate your sleeping patterns. I’m actually writing about a topic I have no real knowledge of so let’s just leave it at that! I […]

The good old Bergs

On-slaw

It’s onshore and surfable. It’s grey and warm. Nothing special, just a stock standard Bondi morning with junkie 3 footers. Apparently, it’s gonna disappear fast, so the morning sess is best. Born out of one man’s passion for the ocean and handmade in his garage – the perfect gift for every ocean lover. Spend more […]

Fiery Start

A storm is coming! Enjoy today as it’s going to be mostly dry (but cloudy) –  at midnight tonight it will pour, and pour, and continue for two days. We could get up to 120 millimetres! Bring in the washing, fertilise the garden, clean out the gutters…Sydney is going to get a good rinse. Today we […]

Blown

Plenty of swell, just too much onshore wind. Bondi was a blown out mess after an early southerly arrival. You need to seek some cover – something like Manly. We’ve had a good run of swell – the weekend was pumping and today it’s a new swell (4-6 foot). Wait until it calms down a […]

Early, very.

Fluid

Sydney’s a good joint to live in. There are not too many places in the world that have such liveable and surfable conditions – most days. This morning was very enticing. Hope you got down there. The show began with a colour spray at 5:30 am. In the brine we had 1-2 footers peeling. It […]

Moods

I spent the morning chasing light rays around Bondi. From 7 am we were morphing from a grey, multi-layered, dark cloudy morning to brilliant sunshine. Some spectacular moments so I cranked up the medium format 100-megapixel bad boy and shot some slow shutters. There is plenty of new swell. Waves are breaking in the 3-5 […]

Groundswell

There’s a groundswell hitting Bondi, both on the land and in the ocean. It was a massive weekend around here. One of the first hot ones combined with the sculptures. Thousands of humans powered into Bondi… even the cafes that are usually empty were full! Today I swam my regular south corner at sunrise and waves broke […]
