a couple more pictures from my time in Australia
Spot: Southwest Australia - Margaret River Region
Date: June 2008
Description: Sand-dune hike to super-fun reef break & paddle out to 3-4' super-fun surf.
Best thing about Margaret River Surfing: the reefs peel for ages and you surf it alone with a friend (since there are so many good spots).
Surfers: Me and a friend.

OceanGybe Expedition Pictures - Indonesia, July & August, 2008 - the riders are either Hugh Patterson, Ryan Robertson, or myself, Bryson Robertson. The spots are in Indonesia and every single one of them we surfed alone, just the three of us out. This was over a period of 6 weeks. Finding surf by sailboat is the only way ! The OceanGybe Expedition is supported by Sitka Surfboards, Livity, Globe and West Wetsuits. www.oceangybe.com has more photo's of this time...
these shots are taken in Indonesia March 08, I live in Tofino B.C half the year and then the rest of my time I reside in Bali. The Photos of me are taken on a break in the NW of Bali. I forget the name of the dude that took the pictures.
Here's my last photo from Australia, a sunset at a sweet spot in the northern margaret river surf region. This place is really difficult to find, but definitely worth it.
Reef break pushing out clean 3'-4' waves. The day before was double overhead and crazy.

These were taken the first official day of "winter" (June 21st) at Bronte beach out near Bondi, in the heart of Sydney. The surfers were a bunch of random local rippers.

I Just came back from a trip far north in Western Oz. These photos of a great swell that hit the desert in Northwest Australia mid to late April this year.
rider: A few friends
comment/trick: Surviving the shallow volcanic reef breaks, but having the best surf session ever at these two locations.
location/venue: Northwest Australia Desert - World Class point break, a sketchy but awesome reef break, and a gorge view 10 minutes away.

Indo's still sick, obviously. But the crowds are definately back, maybee more than ever. The off season crowd seemed worse to me in places than last year's surf season crowd. Anyway, as the wet season came to an end this year some decent smaller surf came thru.

Australia, March & February 2008 - Photo:Phil Heming
I'm studying on exchange at the University of Western Australia right now, so I thought I'd send in a few photos of the surf on the West Coast of Australia, and a couple pictures of East Coast Australia from a couple months ago. I'm going on a surf trip to Margaret River this weekend, and the waves on Friday are forecasted to be 10-12 Feet with 15+ ft. sets (I won't be surfing that day! But the WQS Masters will be on at the main break there with Sunny Garcia etc...), so I'll submit some of the photos I take there soon.
These photos are from Easter Weekend (March) and February: Port Macquarie (East Coast), Margaret River (various spots), and Lancelin (a town 2 hours north of Perth). The waves at Margaret River (South West Australia) were 6 foot that day, Lancelin was 8-10 foot on the reef, and Port Macquarie was 6 foot. Notice the mad scramble for the waves at Margaret River during the Easter weekend!
