Jumped in the water for a bit this morning at the Bower. Had the GoPro onboard so I took a few snaps. It was a bit lully, but there were a few solidly overhead bombs and enough of the chest high stuff to go around. Wind gradually roughed it up so that it was pretty choppy by 1100, but the swell seemed to be rolling along okay. Anyway, herewith a few snaps for your amusement…

Oooo… look at those rocks!
Fun times at the Bower this am

There were waves to be had around the place this morning. Yours truly decided to paddle out for a few at Dee Why point. Crowd was pretty light and though it was inconsistent, every now and then a fun chest plus set would turn up and someone would get lucky…

Went for a quick dip at the point after checking out Manly and the Bower first. Decided against Manly because not only was it very busy, but although the biggest spot I saw (solidly overhead set wave faces), there were very few makeable sections to be had. Virtually everything was shutting down. Bower was too busy for how inconsistent it was. Sets there at around 0900 had faces around the chest plus mark.
Dee Why was pretty much what you’d expect from the pictures, but it too was busy. Worse, my ultra cheapo Vinnies backpack got ripped apart by a set and I had to come in to avoid losing my camera rig. Still, at least I jagged a wave somehow. Here are some snaps…
Smashed me and almost tore the camera off my back.
Not that I’m complaining!

For those of you who couldn’t get in the water Wednesday morning at Dee Why, here’s a little postcard from me courtesy of my still somewhat dodgy, home built GoPro rig. (Developed with help from vinnies and a bike shop that gave me some inner tubes, for a massive budget of $5). And I know, I know, I shoulda remembered the damn potato on the lens port trick!
And hey, if you got a kick out of this, please encourage me with a pledge toward the crowdfunding goal! C’mon…

Messing around this morning at Dee Why point with a homemade rig to hold a GoPro Hero3. Kinda sorta worked, but further experimentation needed. Anyway, I cut the shots together with a tune from Dave Kowalski. Have a look and then, be nice to me and go make a pledge for the crowdfunding drive! BTW, footage out of the new Hero3 is really pretty amazing quality – now to get the camera operator up to standard!
