The Oxford Dictionary provides a contextual sentence which possibly raises more questions about other words that have fallen on paths less... Continue reading

With offshore winds about as light as they could be from the WSW and a rising tide from a low at 4am, we were met with what was as close to a mirror finish as you could hope for. Coupled with no swell to speak of and a balmy 18... Continue reading

With 60cm of south swell on a 5 second cycle, under brooding clouds, the after swim chatter was all about a new visitor to the bay that was apparently not a dusky. And according to And according to Lainey it was not anything she had seen before. The best she... Continue reading

As sure as the Sun shines, Winter is coming. For those that missed the Thredbo shots yesterday, I can assure you it's snowing somewhere and as we edge towards the beginning of June, we may need to celebrate these warm days because they may not last. The ocean's edge today... Continue reading

A pristine morning with the slightest West South West zephyr angling through the pines. One of those days when the water and air temperature are so very close that its hard to tell if you are in or out. At 7 we were just off the bottom of a low... Continue reading

With a low tide at 7.30, 30 cm of swell from the north east and the lightest of 5K west nor west wind and most importantly a stunning 22 degrees, it was hard to imagine we were in May. The Rubber has usually long since made its appearance on many... Continue reading

A great day for deeper considerations and sleep in's. However there is always the chance that the sun will come out and we will miss the "lets go" and regret it. Heaven forbid, so here we are, met by a drizzly start and a 1 metre East Nor East swell... Continue reading

Morning all, apologies bout the delay but just couldn't get a spare moment today to post these pics. I hope they find you eventually. 1/2 a meter of SSE swell on 6 seconds, so really nothing for us in the corner to speak of. Planned to rise to 1 meter... Continue reading

Morning all, A real smokey night last night with temps getting above the comfy range made the swim this morning a must. With a light NE windswell at 8 seconds, we had the remnants splashing the point but was pretty weak on a very low tide. The rest of the... Continue reading

Morning all, Seeing this mornings sunrise, it was almost a given we were heading for some heat today. With a lumpy 1/2 to 1 meter ENE wind swell smacking the point with a almost dead low tide and the last few days having some bities to deal with I figured... Continue reading

It was strangely quiet this morning at the 6am getup. Seemed not a zephyr of wind to be had and a most amazing fog bank out to sea. The leftover Nor East chop had faded to more of a hump than a bump and with the forecast high temps today... Continue reading

A kinda rainy glaze met us this morning but knowing that meant warmer water put a skip in our step on the way to the beach. With a gentle .5 meter south easterly swell pushing quietly round the point and a forecast of smaller swell for the next few days... Continue reading
