Warm + Clear

Oh man, it's so nice in the water right now!  All that cold water that was shocking us on entry last week seems to have cleared out along with the green tinge of algae that comes with the up-welling.  It's warm, it's clear and there's time to spare before the work or school whistle blasts - you'd be mad to sleep through it!

Yeah - Yeah

There's really not much to say about today.  Yeah, sun's out. Yeah, the wind's offshore! Yep, the swell's still pulsing!  It's cooking and here and I suspect just about everywhere on the Northern

Hello Summer?

Hello Summer?  Are you still there?  That was a brief introduction to Summer we had over the weekend.  I hope you managed to soak up some sunshine and enjoy the Nor-East swell.  You can...

Ever noticed that your goofy-footer mate is frothing on lefts you can't even see?  "Nah mate, that right rip-bowl's the spot!"

Everything

This morning's had everything so far; a cracker sunrise, fog pushing over from the harbour, bright sunshine and pouring rain.... and it's only 10:30.  It's a strange kind of weather right now; super

Thick

The salt mist was turned up to maximum volume this morning. So thick with was the air you could barely see joggers on the sand past North Steyne from Queenscliff.

Did you catch that brief flash of bright pink this morning?  I was sprinting on my bike as the brightest of the colour lit up overhead and just manage to capture a couple of frames at Queenscliff

Sensational

It's a sensational day out there today!  There was just enough salt mist in the air this morning to add a faint veil of golden light to the beach. We get this mist a lot over the summer months when

Feels like we might have kicked the morning coastal showers, for now at least.  This morning we had a beautiful mellow golden light and just enough clouds to keep it interesting.

Gone Slack

It's not quite offshore but it's the next best thing, there's just the slackest of breezes out on the ocean today.  It's hardly raising a bump.

Imperfection

You don't have to look far to find waves today although finding a good one is going to be a little bit trickier.  There's a heap of East well streaming into The Beaches with a light onshore wind just...
