Summer Grovelling

The waves were nothing to write home about, but the water was warm and the sun was out. A fun grovelly session in south east QLD. It was a pretty rare day when the water, sky and wind all came together at once this Summer just been. But then again that's not that unusual for summer.

Stunned Mullet

I'm thinking it's probably an Australian expression, so for those from further afield... the stunned mullet is a look of bewilderment or astonishment. The guy on the rocks in the top right is doing a pretty good impression. The waves passing in front of those rocks were nothing special either so I'm not really sure what brought the look on. Maybe he saw a mermaid swim by.

The Phantom

More Surfing Videos

In case you haven't already seen it. It makes me cringe and and want to run away but at the same time I can't take my eyes off it! A bit long and slow, but check out the first few. It is "Chopes" apparently like it's never been before.

Lone Lady Slider

Another one for the ladies. I know this one pretty well, mother of my son in fact. Katherine trimming near home.

Water's Edge/Ladies Day

I've noticed that my "Water's Edge" collages (usually featuring surfers and their surfcraft on the water's edge) are heavily dominated by blokes. So today we have 100% surf ladies by the water's edge.

Farewell Summer

Not that it felt like there were too many days like these to be missing... Oh well maybe next time. Pretty happy to be in Autumn.

McTavish Territory

Testament to Bob's well earned place in Australian surfing and board building history, "McTavish Territory" could pretty much be anywhere with a surfable coast in Australia. But these are a few snatches of a quick trip through northern NSW and southern QLD earlier this year.

Surfer Joes doing their thing. Cruising, racing, stalling. Various moments from this thing we call surfing.

Autumn Welcome

Nine days in, how remiss of me not to mention already... she's here. Autumn. The surfers season. Here's to deep blue skies, swells from afar, and steady offshore breezes.

Surfing Unlike Any You've Ever Seen Before

Well maybe you have but I sure haven't. Tow surfing behind a blimp, serious turns with no fin, board spins, a head stand plus cat and mouse with an ocean liner. In 1931. Epic. Elmer Peck is a hero.
