The Keyhole - the only way out to Main Break


I’m over here in the West (Margaret River) for a real quick fly-through and it’s hoooooot (40 yesterday!). I forgot how dry and brutal the heat can get in West Oz. Perfect beach weather. The surf was 4 foot, cross-shore with a bit of southerly. 3 guys out at main break (wow) …so many beaches […]

City Beach, of all places, had pretty incredible little hollow rights off the groyne… My fascination for the ocean began around here in Perth. As kids, we […]

I’ve arrived at the pearl farming town of Broome today. Some 2,200 kilometers north of Perth and completely the opposite side of Australia to Sydney. It’s summer here…yep…thawing out in the 32-degree heat whilst checking out the main beach, Cable Beach. Cable Beach was named in honour of the Java-to-Australia undersea telegraph cable, which connects […]

Trigg Beach

Today’s Aquabumps comes from the other side of this big island, Trigg Point, Perth – Western Australia. Trigg beach is famous for being one of the most busiest surf breaks in the world. The beach is massively long, and flat, and the banks are usually dead straight to match – but the little corner pocket […]
