Settled

It’s really calmed down a lot around here. The ocean has defaulted to it’s chilled state. Biggest wave I saw all morning was knee to waist high. It’s super clean and decent for a swim. This weekend a huge South swell is going to hit Sydney. I am talking 10 foot at magnets. Wind will […]

Pitter patter

Aquabumps HQ is an old mechanics workshop in Bondi Beach. The old tin roof sounds like a machine gun when she’s raining a lot. It’s gonna rain all day I hear – but clear up for tomorrow. The rest of the week is going to be fantastic. So…on this rainy Monday, crank the work out […]

This week is a really good one to get stuff done. The beach is definitely not calling your name. It’s raining, 1 foot and quite miserable down the beach. What to do? Check out the Sculptures sans crowds (the ONLY time to do it). The swell will pipe up tomorrow from the NE – but […]

It’s Monday. You’re probably back at your desk stressing over how much work you have to cover this week. You had a good weekend mostly spent down the beach (how good was Saturday by the way). Your skin is brown and your mind a little foggy. What were we talking about again? Ah yes, the beach. […]

Been in the ocean yet today? You should. It’s good. And the rest of this week is a windy, rainy and cooler. There’s some little waves around the traps. Nothing really worth writing about. 4 things you need to know: The Aquabumps crew raised $16,000 for SurfAid last week. Thank you to all 108 people […]
