Suffolk Light Blue

Friday, July 31st, 2009

What! Another amazing day at the beach. The swell has come up slightly since yesterday, it’s a fun 2-3ft on the sets and the wind’s been blowing lightly from the south west for most of the day. I hope you’re enjoying winter. Enjoy – Levi

Purple Blue @ Lennox

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

What a fantastic winters day, not so much for surfing but just to soak up the sun on the beach. The swell is still pretty small at about 1-2ft, but looks like its slowly on the rise. Not much wind for almost the whole day, just coming up from the north late in the afternoon. […]

Enoshima Beach

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Just around the corner from Kamakura is Enoshima Beach. Black sands with great backdrops of Enoshima island at one end of the beach and some beautiful mountains at the other. As for the waves, the swell was looking pretty decent, up to about 4ft on the sets & the winds are slightly off-shore. If you’re […]

Surfing in Japan – Kamakura Beach

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Hi people & welcome back.. Traveling to Japan this week has been a mixture of the expected crowds, crazy fashion, small spaces & sushi, but still full of surprises. Less then an hour from central Tokyo by train is one of the most popular places to surf in Japan – that may have more to […]

Big Brown Barrels

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Soooo sick today. It all came together today – winds swung around to the west and the swell evened out. There were nice waves from Byron through Lennox to Ballina. Might be brown and scary looking, but i could handle having waves like this everyday for the rest of my life! Enjoy – Levi

Rusty Finals

Monday, July 13th, 2009

There was no shortage of waves today for the finals of the Rusty Gromfest in Lennox. The wind was from the NW and the swell is still massive, about 6-8ft out the back. So good to see all the young rippers charging the big waves. Congratulations all the grommets out there who competed. Looks like it might […]

Green Blue Walls

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Wow, this was one amazing day! Waves running from Clarkes to Belongil, 4-5ft swell in the Bay, off-shore wind & barrels big enough to drive a small truck through… Yew, get yaself amongst it. Enjoy – Levi

Gromfest in Byron

Friday, July 10th, 2009

Another epic day of waves in the Bay. There was an increase in the swell and amount of grommets in the water today – truck loads of the little rippers. Hope you grommets have fun & score some more sick waves. Yew!! Enjoy ~ Levi

Main Beach Gromfest

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

What a day! There were some beautiful little waves this arvo in the Bay. Southerly winds and good south swell made for nice conditions. The sun was busting through & lighting up the waves at Main Beach, so were some of the grommets. Good to see such young talent in the Bay. Enjoy – Levi

Hot Pink Angels

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

The swell backed off a little from yesterday, but there were still some reasonable waves to be had. Off-shore breeze, 2-3ft south swell and spread-out crowds was the order of the day. Angels beach was possibly the pick of the spots today – certainly looked nice from where I was standing. Yet another fantastic sunset […]

Flat like Pancake!

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

What a day! As flat as it gets, but the best weather you could ask for… So glad to be alive – can’t wait for that predicted swell to arrive. Think it could be pretty nice by Sunday, not that i’m into predictions. Enjoy – Levi

Rollin The Dice @ Nth Wall

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

North wall looked like the spot to be this afternoon. Unfortunately the swell dropped off quicker than it arrived. Great to have some off-shore winds and another spectacular sunset. Enjoy – Levi
