Regardless of today, summer is coming...

Bondi Moods

Today is definitely not a beach day. Nope, not even close. The waves looked dreary, onshore, manky, junky and brown! Rain is pouring and this will continue for a couple of days. That’s OK, I truly hope it’s helping with the northern fires and drought conditions. It’s cold, I’ve got the old puffer on. Bunker […]

Blown! Rain coming today. Get wet right now

Rainmaker

It’s gonna rain soon. If you haven’t been down for a swim/surf you’re running out of time. It’s going to rain for a couple of days and hopefully fill our dams. At sunrise the skies were clear, by 9am it’s greyed over. Tiny swell still producing a few fun little waves for the frothers. Wednesday […]

Check out some of Mallorca's top beaches

Friday Entertainment

It’s Friday and an early morning appointment didn’t allow me to shoot at sunrise – so I snapped a few during the middle of the day. Icebergs was sparkling clean and producing some serious blues. The surf is flat anyway… And so…let’s watch a 2-minute movie from my recent trip to Mallorca hey? Some incredible […]

Watch
Yesterday. Tamarama. Paradise

Sun-Rain

Yesterday was quite a rare, windless, ultra-aquamarine, waveless, glamourous beach day. Today, its 3-4 foot, onshore, raining. Looks like the grey weather is forecast for quite a few days now. A great day to get stuff done. Crank it. :: uge

Icebergs spurt

The Humans of Bondi

Bondi gets such a bad wrap in Summer. I post a shot of a packed Sunday and loads of crew comment saying that’s their worst beach nightmare. To be clear, it’s rammed, choccas, overflowing with humans only about 5% of the time. The rest of the time Bondi is pretty peaceful joint with a solid community […]

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 […]

The flipside, Bondi sunrise 6:30am

Golden Hues

When it’s hot I don’t sleep much. Rolling down the beach at 6 am I don’t think many of you sleep either. Bondi was alive this morning with people going mad on exercise, swimming, surfing, SUPing, fishing…it’s on. Did I say surfing? To clarify, it’s tiny…and the banks remain dysfunctional. The Bulldozers are powering all […]

Tamarama 6:18am, sunrise

T-hammer

I drifted over the hill to Tamarama this morning in search of better waves. I found some rideable waist to chest high waves on offer, nothing really breaking that impressively. The sunrise was worth celebrating with a colour spray of pink, only for a second, then fading into the greys. If you follow me on […]

Biggest waves you'll find today

Flat Summer

Call off the search; I’m back on the tools today.  Countless emails of “Has the internet broken? Where’s my Aquabumps update” or “You’ve removed me from your mailing list…what did I do wrong? I need a beach fix” Haha. It’s me, not you. I took a fair chunk of January off shooting/posting…to refresh the eyes […]

Crowd pleaser, Northern Beaches

Awayco + Ace + Darkside

Like to surf? Yeah? Well, the past 6 weeks have been flat as. Real frustrating summer dribbles for days on end. Today has broken that swell drought and we have great waves! World No. 16 Ace Buchan dropped by for some pre-tour warm-ups. It’s dropping fast, 4-5 foot, East winds now (was offshore earlier). Hate travelling […]

Wowser, yesterday at Bondi was rammed

Sizzle

Well, that was a biggie. Yesterday was the perfect storm down at Bondi – Sculptures, 31 degrees and a Sunday. Huge crowd madness. Watch my little video if you don’t believe me. Today Bondi is pieced back together and all back to normal. Waves – 1 footers, not even. Winds are NNW (good for Bondi) but […]

Bondi Beach on the weekend, standing room only!

Bake

The weekend was the 1st big one for the season – hot, muggy, crowded with northerly winds – just perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon on our beloved coastline. A lot of wintery bleached white bods on the beach, hunting their first dose of a base tan. Waves – not really happening today or on […]

Bonza!

Well whata we got ‘ere…classic Bondi today. It all began with a coloured sunrise over the Buckler followed by neat 2-3 footers. Mainly 2 footers. Long waits. Great rides. Good times. Feels like summer! (max 29 today). Ocean swimming season has just kicked off so make sure you’ve registered for the local events like Bondi […]
