The Bank

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Morning glass followed by afternoon glass. Sounds like the recipe for a great day of surfing – i’m sure it will be when the swell picks up again. There were some 2ft sets on the open beaches this afternoon on high tide. The water is still incredibly warm and clear, with a deep blue colour […]

Good as Gold

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

Just sitting and watching the afternoon gold was enough to make ya day at the Pass. Hope that this swell that seems to have just arrived from the south is going to bring some good waves to continue the nice run for Autumn. The swell picked up today from about 2ft in the morning to […]

Gold Coasting

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

The swell swung to the east and so did the wind, by late afternoon. There were some nice waves at D’Bah this afternoon, and even better surfing in the amazingly warm Gold Coast water. There are people coming n going, plenty of bright colors, but most importantly, there’s a lot of people making the most […]

Fisherman

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

There was an amazing change in the weather today – from torrential down pours in the morning to bright sunshine in the afternoon. The winds stayed light all day, but favored waves in the Bay, although there seemed to be plenty around on the open beaches. There were more then just surfers out in the […]

Macaroni Cheese

With the gold of the morning and the perfectly shaped left handers, it was an epic start to another new Autumn day. The swell was around 3ft in the morning on the open beaches & light north west winds. Great day for surfing. Enjoy – Levi

Corner Bowl

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

After all the anticipation of monster cyclone swell & good winds for the bay, it seemed a little disappointing, yet the day did still offer some good waves. The swell has dropped a little from yesterday, but is still about 5-6ft on the open beaches. It was a rare moment this morning when i found […]

Desaturation

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Looks like the cyclone is continuing to push swell into The Bay, but along with the swell are some less favorable easterly winds. There were waves to be had & with bursts of sunshine late this afternoon, it was a another day in paradise. Swell is up to about 3ft on the sets at the […]

Dawn Patrol

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Love a good northeast swell, flooded in golden dawn light, when it’s 4-5 foot and off shore! Well, that’s exactly what we had this morning, so I hope you didn’t sleep through your alarm. Enjoy ~ Levi

A Twist of Colour

Monday, March 15th, 2010

There was a twist of colour when the late afternoon light broke through the clouds and the wind swung from on-shore to off-shore! How good is afternoon light & a late arvo glass-off. Ahhhh, it was all perfect this afternoon, no crowd, beautiful light, glassy conditions, great waves & warm water. Enjoy ~ Levi

Arch

Somewhere over the rainbow, you’ll hopefully find something nice like the waves on Main Beach this morning. Swell looks to have dropped off again over night, as did the wind. High tide sets were about 3ft and reasonably hollow. Not so many guys out, so there were enough waves to go around. Hope you enjoyed […]

Gold, Gold, Gold!!!

Friday, March 12th, 2010

There was some serious morning Gold in the Bay – nobody out for the early morning session & main beach was lighting up with gold in the sky, reflections in the water & some solid gold in the waves. The swell has continued to pick up over the last few days & was about 3ft […]

Off The Rocks

Monday, March 8th, 2010

Yew! The surf’s picked up a little from yesterday. It was about 3-4ft today, with early morning glass, light north winds through the day followed by late afternoon glass – gotta love surfing in Autumn! Enjoy – Levi

Fish Scales

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

The sky lit up late this afternoon and so did a couple of the surfers! Fish scale clouds spread across most of the sky – brought in by a late westerly change. The swell is around 3ft on the sets. Hope you had a chance to dip in the beautiful warm water today. Enjoy – […]

Quiksilver Pro 2010

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Congratulations to Taj Burrows winning the 2010 Quiksilver Pro on the Gold Coast! With an incredible display of aerial maneuvers throughout the contest, Dane Reynalds came up against Jordy Smith in semi-final number 2. This was an epic combination of newschool tricks and powerhouse turns, eventually seeing Jordy make it through to the final. The […]

Fenced in

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Today saw a bit of an easing back in the swell size, but it was still about 3ft in the Bay. The open beaches were wild and windy, so it was good to find a place protected from the strong easterlies. The rain was replaced with sunshine, so it was great being outside and soaking […]

Autumn Swell – Round 1

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

The third round of the Quiksilver Pro was on today  at Snapper Rocks and the swell hit as expected! You’ve gotta love a good prediction, especially when it involves a new swell. There were some solid 5-6ft waves at Snapper this afternoon & decent sized ones at Byron. The wind was strong n gusty from […]

Green Crystal Cylinders

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

With east winds blowing and a drop in the swell, it was hard work finding a good wave today. The swell is around 2ft on the open beaches, but should be on the rise in a few days – I’m sure the guys at the Quiksilver Pro are hoping so too. It’s good to get […]
