Click on the image below for full screen view! What a fantastic start to the morning – up to the lighthouse to do some exercise n watch the sunrise. The North East swell was coming into The Bay at about 3ft on the sets with nice light off shore winds. Great watching the longboard riders styling […]

Gold n Dolphin

Click on image to enlarge! Beautiful conditions this morning! There was a feeling of being in Indonesia with a slight smell of smoke, super clean sunrise conditions… The waves were a bit more wally today, at about 3ft and peaking up nicely on the take off point. Most open beaches would have had something nice […]

Click on the photograph for a full screen view! Side shore winds blew for the entire day today ~ it was a bit gusty but there were still some good 4ft waves coming in. The water temperature dropped dramatically over night, leaving pockets of cold water. Plenty of fish and a few small sharks were […]

Click on the photo for full screen view! What a spectacular sunrise ~ winds blowing from the south west from just before sunrise. It was still a bit lumpy and shifty on the open beaches, but smoothed up through the day, while in The Bay it was smooth and still reasonable size. The odd 3foot […]

A picture perfect day in The Bay today – light south east winds and 2-3 foot of swell made for a great day of surfing. A few young gun Californians joined in with local rippers and visitors alike. The water was super warm and a beautiful colour. Hope you’ve had a Great Sunday. Enjoy ~ […]

Fresh Greens

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW! It was another perfect summer’s day ~ there seemed to be a lot of greens n blues… I love when the surf is small and you can still get nice clean waves. The wind was only light and slightly off-shore early this morning & then turned to […]

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A FULL SCREEN VIEW! Yet another day of waves! Gotta love being able to find shelter in the storm – The Bay seems to be one of the few places on the entire north coast with protected surf at the moment. The swell dropped a little from yesterday, but was […]

Smoking Crabs

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Click on the image for full screen view!! It was a strange day to say the least ~ I saw a crab smoking (check it out – the 2nd last photo). The swell was solid today at about 5+ft on the open beaches and seems to be increasing from the south. The winds have been […]

Hot Chocolate

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! After a few days of cyclonic weather the water coming out of the rivers looks like hot chocolate. The swell is still around 3-4 foot on the open beaches, but is super messy – not a lot of guys out. There were a few good waves, with […]
