At 5:50am it was shaping up quite nicely. Glassy conditions, small East swell and colours sprayed over the Buckler. Real pretty huh? By about 6:30am a small south change hit, messing the surf up and the skies filled grey. It’s now 11:38am as I write this and I can see sunshine baking through all windows. […]

Hola. After all that wind yesterday we are left with some swell. Bondi was breaking chest to head high but looking a little junky and unpredictable. The banks aren’t crash hot… Winds offshore and super chilly. It got down to 8 this morning. The good news is that this weekend looks sunny, warmish and a […]

It was a bit chilly down there this morning. A lucky 8 degrees. The water was a welcome reprieve…being much warmer than the air. There is a small wave on offer, waist to inconsistent chest high. Shallow bank in the south end has the most joy. The forecast for the weekend looks sunny and small…maybe […]

Fridays are always fun, even with no waves, because of the One Wave Crew Antics. Today’s performance, a surfing swan, Hula Hula Supa, good looking traffic controllers and some other unexplainable fluoro frivolity. Never a dull moment down at Bondi. The surf is 1 foot from the ESE and a very chilly west offshore. The […]

With the forecast looking healthy for some ENE swell today and a rumour of some decent banks down at the Bra I rolled down there to take a look. It was OOOkkkk(ish)…waist to chest high, clean and out of the SW wind…but not really worth chasing. 3 out of 10. This grey old day will […]

In comparison to the rest of the week today’s the poor cousin. It all began with rain at 6:30am…then the swell dropped to the knee high range…and only broke every 10-15 mins. The light was diffused by grey clouds and the beach was relatively quiet. The water remains a toasty 24 degrees (perfect) and the […]

Today’s the last day of the road trip as we approach the Queensland border. A brief interlude with Byron Bay’s Tallow Beach (which was super fun and out of the wind) and the car is packed up and back on the road to Snapper’s Quiky Pro. It’s been a good week with decent waves wherever […]

The best thing about a drive up the coast is that you basically keep driving until you find waves. There are just so many options along the East Coast. Mid-week is also a bonus (and out of Skool Hols) as most beaches are relatively deserted. Yep, the best time of year as its still summer. […]

Howdy…we’re on the road. The Road to the Pro that is…all 844 kilometres of coastal highways from Sydney to Snapper Rocks. I’ve never done this drive in one continuous trip. I’m excited about finding a few waves along the way that fall into the cracks and particularly uncrowded ones (Bondi does get a lil’ hectic). […]
