autumn magic

Sunny, offshore winds, last day of autumn is living up to its rep. Waves have been good for days and it looks like continuing for a while yet. Surfing at this time of year is so sweet! here to see more pics from today

 Solid amount of rain falling on the Coffs coast this morning, not great picture taking weather for this little photographer, however we did get a few hours of sunlight late yesterday arvo and the pictures in todays post are mostly from that session.

Wet n wild this morning on the Coffs coast, a howling southerly wind and grey skies aint making the surfing option really inviting at the moment. Last night however was a totally different story,  conditions were prime!! from lunch time onwards there was a perfect offshore wind blowing against this new south-east groundswell, it was one of those special late autumn evenings. We got down the beach for the last here to see more pics

Well it didn’t stay small for long. This morning we were greeted with a new groundswell. It seems to be building through the morning and coupled with these offshore winds it could be a really good surf day. I spent a while sear..... CLIK HERE to see more pics from today

monday clouds

Not much energy in the waves today, just shoulder high swell flopping on to some high tide banks at first light, the beach I photographed this morning didn’t inspire any surf action shooting. But if you know of.... CLICK HERE to see more and get the links to some new stuff on our website

For about 20 minutes this morning I had a killer golden backdrop to work with. The sunrise just had enough room between the horizon cloud cover and the heavy overcast sky above. Lucky for me Alex Swadling was out there and doing most of his surfing above the lip, so I managed to get so..... click here to see more aerial shots from today

Well the strong southerly from yesterday backed right off this morning. It was a peaceful looking coastline today. A small weak wave just gently peeling under some interesting cloud formations. There were more early here to see the surf action from today.

That solid swell kept on pulsing this morning. South facing beaches were getting hammered by a 3 meter swell, while beaches that are even a little bit protected from the south were quite small. Theme for toda...CLICK HERE to see some more shots from the morning session

The ocean has some energy today!! A strong south-east swell has stepped up a notch overnight and is starting to light up the coffs coast. Double overhead sets were pounding on to the high tide banks early this morning, the swell still looked a little unorganised, but I’m tipping that will clean up over the next day or so and we coul......

me on mesurf

Surf stoked website "ME SURF" were kind enough to do up a new profile on our photography. CLICK HERE to have a look at a short portfolio and a bit of a write up.


The swell is starting to ramp up this morning, it seems to be the start of this new south-east swell that is predicted to peak on Friday and into the weekend. I was only down there for about a half hour this morning and this particular beach here to see more from today

Another cracking morning in Coffs again. The swell is maybe a touch smaller, but it’s still clean and it’s still barrelling. Great week to be a surfer!!. Today’s post and updated gallery is full of people having fun on everything from “stand up paddle” boards to alaia’s to bodyboards to modern quad fish boards and high performance thrusters. I love the diversity of whats been ridden over the last 3 years, each of these crafts were finding different parts of th.... click here to read more and see more pics

But hold the bus, its predicted to get even better o.... click here to see more barrels from todays session

I had to pull on a jumper this morning! a cool south west wind sprung up over night and gave us a little warning that winter is just around the corner. The southerly has pushed in a bit more swell, but it’s peaky and close together, doesn’t look like the new swell will here to see more from this morning

homemade wave

Working in conjunction with the Indian government, ASR Ltd completed construction of India’s first Multi-Purpose Reef in February, 2010. The primary purpose of the reef is to mitigate coastal erosion from monsoon waves in the small town of Kovalam. The reef also creates an excellent habitat for marine species. Finally, as this video shows, the reef has helped create a great surf spot. CLICK HERE to watch the clip

Well the rain only lasted one day and we are back to our magic autumn weather. The low sun beamed into the faces of some early crew surfing a fun righthander at one of our towns here to see more

Grey and stormy was the way it looked around 6 this morning. Big dark clouds closing in on the northern corners, while little glassy waves peeled off below. I was quick enough to shoot a few pics before the heavy clouds dumped their load at ar.... click here to see more

Really glassy conditions first up this morning. A nice sunrise at 6.10am gave way to overcast skies. The swell from the weekend is still hanging in there, although it is a little smaller and weaker. Anywhere with a good low tide here to see more from this morning
