Up-date 29th April 2014

A great day starting ! A killer Tuesday that make you forget Monday.

Waves a a tiny notch bigger than yesterday, but very nice and clean. And again, the South end bank in Bondi was doing its magic. If you were making the section, you got finish on the sand.

I guess with less water, and if the wind stays still, it could be looking good. And with this 26 degrees on the dial and the blue sky, there is no reason to stay inside, unless you have to slave away till the weekend. And for those of you/us, I am sorry.

Have a great day !

Back in Town, I was not super impressed by the weather this morning, but it seems to be on the improve now.

Conditions are way better than yesterday (not hard to beat…), and Bondi had a few waves on the South end (as usual…).

Board shorts become a rare commodity on the beach nowadays, except for the odd full energetic Joel ''Yew-man'' Pilgrim who still finds the water tropical.

It's Monday, and it's a full 5 working days-week, for a change: it's gonna feel looooong !

Have a great day !

I feel like a fish in the water. Literally and figuratively.

Literally, because I’ve been spending more time underwater than on the ground. The waterhousing in one hand, and my eyes wide opened.

Figuratively, because the bush, the 4wd tracks, whether it is soft sand, rocks or corrugated, give you access to the real outback. The outback where you feel remote, alone, disconnected from the World (literally. Hence why I could not send an up-date yesterday).

I’ve had a very very close (too close) encounter with a Manta Ray, who thought that it was a good idea to give me a hug. But have you ever tried to hug a giant piece of sand paper ? Well, that’s what our friend the Manta feels like. My knees still bear the marks of this intimate moment.

Have a great day. Last one for the week for a lot of you. Yew !

The beauty about WA is everywhere.

But the most beautiful about it, is the fact that it is the end of the World. Everything is a real hike away. Soft sand, long road, dirt tracks…all of those things that make you appreciate even more whatever you find at the end of the road.

It's been pumping back home and I hope you've made the most of the long weekend.

Have a nice day !

Sun is back. We live next to a wave garden at the present time. And the winds have turned offshore.

The Hueys are playing ball: it's a good Thursday !

Tomorrow should be a good Friday too. A very good Friday: most of us will be off to enjoy the swell which might pulse even a tiny bit stronger, whilst vitamin D will be pouring and the sprays will keep going backwards.

Make the most of it, and enjoy the long weekend/week, if you managed to score the 3 days in between.

Frothers' updates are going to be travelling, and providing a decent connection, I hope you'll see some blue and yellow in the shots next week.
