Berg's sunrise, before opening and filling

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 […]

3 lucky girls enjoying the sunrise burner

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 […]

Pool light play, Bergs

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 […]

Tough day to keep the pool clean at high tide, Icebergs

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 […]

Board training, Friday 2 October 5:30pm

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 […]

Morning rituals, Icebergs, Bondi Beach

Warmth

The mornings are getting warmer and the crowds growing as we slide in summer. Bondi is nuts in summer. Just watch the TV show! To my surprise, we have half decent waves in Bondi this morning. Its a junkie confused ocean, a lil’ onshore, with swell coming in from all directions, but there’s a head high […]

Blown

It’s windy as hell and blowing in from the South. The swell hasn’t really kicked so there is only a small 1-2 foot shore break at high tide. Patches of sunshine but a much, much cooler day than glamourous yesterday. Possibly more swell as the day progresses. :: uge

Probably one of the most photographed pool corners in the world

Default

No Royal couples, no wind (yet), not really any waves…but yes, we have sunshine! Ah yes, Bondi’s back to its usual spring pattern. The 7:30am high tide was killing it for surfers. Waves limped into the south facing Bondi whilst it was waaaay too full for Tama. Lower tides will be more promising. If you’re coming to […]

Sun Worship

G’day.  Ah…finally a morning with some raw sunlight to shoot – bonus! Sensational warm morning – and everyone was up early to welcome it. Waves – we’ve got some. Tamarama and Bronte looked pretty wild while Bondi had some OKish fat 3ft runners in the southern corner. It’s not pumping, but worthy of a paddle. […]

The Prodigal Son

Hey Y’all, it’s me! I know, I know…I keep disappearing all over the place, but now I’m back in Bondi and on the tools, shooting the breeze and hunting clean swells. No more interrupted transmission, promise. Bondi was a delightful 3-4 foot this morning, clean with surprise westerly offshore wind. It’s Monday and the first day […]

Sets rolling in still. Good times

Waves

Good waves, good times…hope you’ve got the day off work. After so much recent agitation it looks like the ocean has finally settled. Bondi has some really fun waves on offer this morning. It looks like the sand movements from the recent pounding swell have improved the bank setup and closed the large gutters in […]
