@hotndelicious Sunrise Surf Magic | Bronte to Bondi

Gorgeous peach, purple skies sparkled and glistened on the water at Bronte Beach Rock Pool this morning, as I watched the sun rise over the ocean.

A solo surf photography walk from Bronte back to Bondi was just the recharge that I needed to start the day and a the cherry on top for this past 10 days with my Mum and Dad visiting Sydney from Melbourne on holidays and staying near me in Bondi Beach. 

Finally I was able to see my parents for the first time in 1.5 years, who despite only living an hour’s flight away, felt like a world away at times with pandemic lockdowns, false starts and the like.

I gazed into the distance at Bronte Rock Pool on this winter’s morn, soaking up the energy of the ocean and skies, with sunrise swimmers, surfers and a few of the usual suspects from the photography tribe.

On the coastal walk back, I captured a lucky surfer in an epic barrel off Bronte Beach shot from Tamarama Beach, spotted Alex The Seal terrorizing the local salmon population off Mackenzies Point and captured this wicked umbrella-style wave behind Bondi Icebergs, that’s more reminiscent of waveforms that my home-boy Tim Bowman, Gergo AKA rugligeri or Seb AKA surfographer shoot and share with their respective photography communities.

My heart is soaring right now from the time that I’ve spent with Mum and Dad this past week. Having them as friends as an adult is an absolute privilege and we spent more days and hours together on coastal walks, hikes, exploring galleries, watching big wave surfing, shooting photography, sharing meals together and more, in this past 10 days than ever before. Just magical!

It’s fuelling me with fresh energy for the week ahead and to all of my South American, European, UK and North American friends in the hood and around the globe missing your friends and family right now, I know exactly how you are feeling and take heart.

I hope that you’re able to get outside to get some fresh air today, call some friends/fam that you love and bring some fresh energy to your week.

From my little home by the sea in Bondi Beach to yours… Happy Tuesday, everyone!

@hotndelicious Sunrise Surf Diaries | Black & Gold Bondi Beach

Black & Gold. Sunrise Sessions & Silhouttes in Bondi Beach.

Awake before dawn as per usual, but out of action and out of the surf for a few days, I’m still so stoked that I was able to soak up sunrise at the beach with my DSLR this morning.

Loving the black & gold silhouette action and captured a few of snaps of my fellow shooters too.

Hope that you’re having rad week, peeps, and enjoying this gorgeous Sydney weather!

@hotndelicious Sunrise Surf Diaries | Ride The White Lightning

Ride The White Lightning AKA “The Chris Friend show”. Magic mornings in the hood yesterday!

I bumped into several of my favourite sunrise shooters on my morning photo walk including Walt Kennard, Uge (Aquabumps) and more, and in Bondi Beach surfing news, it appears as though the sand bank creating our beloved left off Ramp 2 that’s been around the past few months might have shifted, however it was such a gorgeous morning and the waves were firing both left and right at the south end of the beach.

Part II of my Monday morning was in the water filming surf vids for 2 hours with my home-girl Ema AKA Sister Slater, Derek from Beach Grit and @yourmate_. I even caught my 1st video shot from inside the barrel today!!! I’m seriously frothin’ right now! And finally Part III sunset sessions filming in the water were fire! South Bondi was PUMPING! 😊✨

Click here to check out the full gallery and snap up prints from yesterday AM, here to check out my barrel abd the vids from the AM/PM surf videography sessions and happy Tuesday, legends!

@hotndelicious Surf Diaries | Bluebottle Carnage & Crashes

Swarms of bluebottle jellyfish hit Bondi Beach for breakfast yesterday for about the billionth time this season.

100s upon 1000s of bluebottles lined up the 1km Bondi Beach shoreline as I cruised down to shoot sunset surf sessions and clear my head after a busy day.

And man, the surf was hectic! I love being able to build people up, so I don’t often shoot and post surf mayhem and crashes, however the short boarders were absolute frothin’ and killing it in the southerly mess of massive waves, so I captured some absolute bangers!

I hope that you enjoy the carnage as much as I do! 😆😂🤣

Happy Hump Day, legends!  🤙

@hotndelicious Photo Diary Feb 17 | Barrels for Breakfast

Barrels for Breakfast 📷🌊✨🏄‍♂️

Magic little morning in Bondi Beach! With the overcast skies and low light, I decided to skip a sunrise surf videography sesh with my crew and chilled in one of my favourite spots under the pandanus trees in South Bondi, soaking up the sound of the waves rolling in and the sunrise vibe.

I cruised down to the beach, bumping into a few of the locals including Uge and Joel Pilgram from Waves of Wellness (WOW) Foundation, whom I ended up snapping some killer shots of, carving up the right hander off South Bondi, with Mackenzies Point as the backdrop.

I’m glad I skipped the surf videography session this morning, as I’ve just had multiple reports back of masses of blueys in the water (bluebottle jellyfish)  this morning ⚡️⚡️⚡️ and instead of getting stung, I got all zen with my morning walk and captured some fab surf pics of Joel & co tearing it up, including some dude who had barrels for breakfast!

Happy Hump Day, legends!  🤙

@hotndelicious Dec 17 | Bondi Beach Surf Sunrise Sessions

Sunrise Sessions 171220 Bondi Beach by @hotndelicious

Magic morning back behind the lens this AM in Bondi Beach!
 
Of late, I have fallen in love with shooting surf videography in the thick of the action in the water with my Aquatech kit, opening up a whole new world of creativity and getting super fit at the same time, however this week I found myself craving shooting from dry land to capture some beautiful, crisp imagery surf photography.

I hit Bondi Beach at sunrise this morning with my Canon 6D with an EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS lens and captured a bunch of rad pics of my mates from the Bondi Beach surf community and a few randoms out there in the waves this morning. So much fun!
