Swell Hangover

Well…where do I start?  OK, maybe watch this first. The weekend was full of rogue south swell. What an action packed weekend! So much going on. 10 footers were a common sight. I thought it was quite hard to find surfable waves though. I didn’t search too hard, but it was maxing out, everywhere. Yesterday […]

Bronte Pool, as quiet as ever this morning

Lucky 8

The number 8 is considered very lucky to the Chinese. Pronounce ‘Ba’…similar to ‘Fa’ which means making a fortune! This morning was 8 degrees down the beach. A very r-ucky morning indeed! A wealth of sunshine, windless beaches and warm water. All we need is swell. Great conditions for my six-year-old son. Come on Huey! Throw us […]

Patience pays

Lightless

It was a dark cold morning. I found myself kicking around waiting for some the light. We’ve now past the winter solstice (June 21) so the days will get longer slightly from here. Hooray. There are waves around, head high on sets. The offshores are grooming and making for good conditions. It’s pretty darn cold […]

Fresh little peak getting tweaked

Well hello.

Coupla little waves on offer this morning. It ain’t pumping, but it’s contestable. A bit of junk in the morning sess, maybe that’ll get ironed out as the day progresses. Swell will go tiny tomorrow before rocking back up on Tuesday. Whilst were we scoring 8 foot plus in Mentawais last week Taj and a […]

Cleaner

With an early SW wind, the beaches cleaned up a little. Not a bad morning to surf. The forecasted SE winds will return early, though…and corrupt the goodness. Rain. Well, still raining. Dum de dum. I reckon it bucketed on me multiple times this morning whilst I was trying to nail some sort of a […]

Feb Vs March

We’ve been experiencing a very wet March. I bet you didn’t know that historically March actually is the wettest month of the year? Yesterday, remnants of ex-cyclone Debbie blew and dowsed the city for hours. Its looking 1,000 times better right now (10:40 am Friday). 5 things you need to know about the weather: Partly sunny and […]

Debbie does…

Debbie is coming to town. She’s gonna take over. The deluge is just kicking off now as I write to you. The winds will hoooooowwwwl at 30 knots (from 2 pm today). Temperatures will drop into the afternoon and your garden is going to get a good dowsing. There was some NE swell at sunrise, in […]

Glorious

It’s a good thing that it rained for weeks and weeks this month, as, when the weather came good, you REALLY enjoyed it. The weekend just gone in Sydney was immaculate. I am talking sunshine, waves, little wind….and perfect temps. Just glorious. This morning was no different. People walking around with a face full of […]

SW

Like Monday’s glory day, the winds kicked back to the beautifully grooming South-West. I reckon that’s the best wind for around here. It’s not only good for surfing conditions but also creates the best blues in the ocean. The swell is not a patch on Super-Monday, but it’s still pretty damn fun. Bondi looked ordinary but […]
