In The Green

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Looking at the swell today made me wanna just surf all day – there was hardly any breeze, only a light off-shore blowing/ and the swell is still solid at around 5-6ft on the open beaches. Although the swell was lumpy there were some spots that were […]

School Surfing

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Click on the image for full screen view!!! Swell is coming in straight n solid today ~ with only a small amount of wind. It was a good day for surfing ~ lucky for the grommets at Byron High School who got to go surfing for sport. They were tearing apart everything that came in […]

Not a laughing matter

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Humid!!! What a day ~ the humidity was about 95% all day & to add to that were northerly winds. The sweet relief was found in the ocean – five foot south swell. There were some nice waves today, although it  was a bit of lumpy in […]

Shiny Day

Monday, March 21st, 2011

A great break in the weather today & a shift in the swell size. The wind was south west early this morning and turned to the east through the day. Plenty of nice waves on the open beaches & lots of sunshine after three days of rain. The extreme aerial quadrocopter guys were out this […]

Gotta Go with Gato

Friday, March 18th, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGR BELOW FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Tiny clean waves today on the open beaches of Byron ~ the pick of surfboard for today’s session might just have been a Gato Heroi longboard. There was barely a breath of wind until about lunch time, making the silvery blue of the ocean that much […]

Pile o Rocks

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE BELOW FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Scampering down a track to a deserted break that looked something like a mellow Indonesian reef break made for a pretty good start to the day. With very little wind and what wind there was blew in from the south west. What a great day to […]

Wheely Good!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Waking up to a nearly breathless morning and knowing the swell is still around was a great start to the day! Light winds from the south, turning to the east by mid-afternoon, didn’t have much of an affect on wave quality. There were 4ft sets and reasonable banks on the open beaches. There were lots […]

Free As A Bird

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Click on the image for full screen view!!! Wonderful day ~ light easterly winds in the morning with about 3ft of swell, turning to the north a little by the afternoon. Waves all day in The Bay. Glad to be alive and feeling so much pity for those who don’t have it as good as […]

A Quik Roundup

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Click on the image for full screen view!!! Just another set of photo’s from the Quiksilver Pro, since it was such a good event. The waves were varied throughout the contest but seemed to improve towards the end of the contest. There was some incredible free-surfing as well as a Legends of the tour expression […]

Special K

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW! What an amazing day of surfing today on the Gold Coast. It started out with light south west winds, early this morning, but by mid-morning they turned to the south east. This wasn’t a bad thing for the Quarter Finals of the Quiksilver Pro being held at […]

Cruisy Day

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Click on the image for full screen view!!! It was yet another cruisy day in Byron Bay ~ the sun was shining and there were a few small waves to enjoy. There were, as usual, a number of good surfers out making the most of the smooth waves. I met a couple big guys walking […]

Over Pass

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE BELOW FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Windy conditions along the coast today meant that there were very few spots to surf with quality waves. There were a couple nice waves in The Bay though. The strong southeast winds brought in about 4-5ft of swell onto the open beaches & around 2-3ft in […]

Team Hurley

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW! Morning light is always great after an evening storm ~ the waves were smooth this morning on the open beaches with light south west winds. It was a super muggy day so it was just great to get into the water to freshen up and catch a […]

Lay Day

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Today was a lay day for the  Quiksilver & Roxy Pro’s on the Gold Coast ~ the swell has all but gone this morning from Byron as well. As I traveled down the coast in search of some waves I noticed quite a few people just putting […]

Jordy Smith @ Tiny Tallows

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR FULL SCREEN VIEW!!! Very small waves today in The Bay but it was picture perfect, especially when Jordy Smith and his mates paddled out. The waves were about as small as it gets but these surfers were still finding places to launch good airs or big hacks on them. The […]
