Sea the future

Morning my friends,

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was great with a lovely wedding celebration on Saturday and a few good surfs.

This week is a pretty special week. First of all, I’m starting a new job. I will reveal more in the coming days when it’s fully official. Don’t you worry!

Second of all, it’s Sustainable Seafood Week and two leading not-for-profit organisations, the ASC and MSC have joined forces to promote it. Interestingly, research shows that three-quarters (74%) of Australians believe we need to purchase certified sustainable seafood to safeguard our oceans, yet only one in ten (9%) currently do.

We can make a difference in safeguarding our seafood by shopping for products which carry the blue and green eco labels. These can be found across fresh, chilled, frozen and canned seafood items at your local supermarket. If like me you want to join the pledge, share a picture of you next to the water (ocean, river or even a lake) using #Seathefuture and tagging @loveoceanlovefood

I guess that’s it for today, have a wonderful week and chat to you tomorrow,

Ciao,

Amo

Morning my friends,

How’s things?

Another morning, another cracker… This morning I went down for a Bondi-Bronte run (first one in 6 months, it feels good and knees don’t hurt yet) and then took my Olympus waterhousing for a swim.

Water was incredible so no wettie, just my pair of flippers to fight the strong rip. It was packed but pretty good atmosphere in the water - people dropping on each other but all with a smile!

My apologies for the late update but I had a coffee planned with Rob Norman from Knack Studios straight after my swim. You should check them out, these guys are impressive!

Enjoy the photos and chat to you tomorrow, if the weather stays beautiful. Yep, it’s meant to rain in a couple of hours. :(

Kick-ass

Morning my friends,

Hope you all had a great weekend. The weather has been incredible lately and the water divine, it’s 25 degrees. No joke, I don’t remember being that warm in Bondi since I’ve landed here 9 years ago. It’s like a bath! Go for a dip tonight or tomorrow morning, you won’t regret it!

Kick-ass, that’s how my morning started: getting my ass-kicked! For a change I’ve trained with a group of fitness maniacs (a group led by Kim from buddee fitness) that loves to get a good sweat before the sun is even up. We started at 5:45am down at the bars and wrapped up by 6:45am. Trust me, it was tough! Tonight, I’m going to sleep like a baby.

If you want to sleep like a baby too but don’t want your body in pain, I strongly suggest you to go to the New Moon Sound Healing meditation on Thursday. It’s my good friend Viktoria that is organising it. I’ve been there before and trust me this thing is good! Read my review here and book your tickets for Thursday there.

Alright that’s enough blabla for one morning, here are the photos…

Autumn

Morning peeps,

That’s it, Summer is over! It went way too fast but can’t complain really, it was a pretty good one. Today marks the first day of Autumn in Australia.

I’m in rush this morning so here are the photos.

Have a great weekend,

Cheerio,

PS: My apologies for the numerous typos on the blog / newsletter. I guess that’s the problem when you try to rush things out. It’s only throughout the day when I have more time to look at the copy that I correct a few typos. ;)

Hola amigos,

How’s everyone today?

This morning was not too shabby, it all started with some pink clouds, then pastel sky, bright sunshine and the iconic Bondi golden colour.

Lately I’ve had trouble waking up at 5:30am, probably because it’s pitch black, therefore the motivation is not there. Anyway, I went down later than usual just in time for the pink sky, did a few push/pull/abs/run rounds down at the jungle gym, then coffee at Birichina with my mate Simon, photos, swim, shower, dropped wife & daughter and then uploaded all the photos, selection and editing of the best ones, wrote this incredible blog post (that no one really reads - do you? If you do, drop a YES in the comment section down below) and posting all over the Internet (Facebook, Instagram, Instagram Stories, Twitter, Newsletter…)

Sometimes I feel like my life is a race - no wonder! ;)

Have a great day my friends and stay cool as always,

xoxo

Morning my friends,

How’s everyone? Hope you all had a great weekend.

Mine was superb, I went for a boys weekend with 8 mates up to Copacabana - we spent the majority of the weekend in the surf. I reckon around 8 hours between Friday evening till Sunday lunch time. Cyclone Oma, brought some pretty decent waves up there. I think they should have called it, cyclone Oma-God! ;) Hate to show-off but ehh my good mate Bruno took an epic drone video of me riding a pretty decent size wave ;)

Anyhow, today we were back to the normal routine. We trained with Paul at the bars North Bondi, then coffee with Simon and photos & swim by myself. As I was writing yesterday in my Instagram Stories, the sunrise is so late these days so it’s getting very hard to squeeze the whole routine and leave the beach by 7:15am.

Today, there were just 1000’s of surfers in the water, dropping on each other and dinging their boards. Fun stuff!

Have a lovely week my friends and chat to you tomorrow,

Ciao,

Amo

Morning peeps,

Hope you are well.

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty wild with heaps on, two 40th birthdays on both Friday and Saturday and then my daughter 3 year old birthday on Sunday and her 15 friends. Pretty full on but so much fun!

As you all know by now, the thing that I like the most about my Morning Bondi routine is to hang out with my mates, today was all about that. Too tired to exercise, just joined my good friends for coffee and swim. Happy campers!

Have a lovely week my friends!

Ciao,

After a long lunch at Nomad with work (great restaurant by the way) and a nice dinner with my wife last night, I was a bit dusty this morning so I spent 30 minutes in the water to recover. I feel much better now, thanks for asking!

Morning my friends,

How is everyone today? Hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was just fantastic, hence the reason it’s Moan-day and not Monday.

So, we went to Port Stephens for the weekend, this place is a real gem. We did sand boarding, dolphin tour, I had three decent surfs at One Mile Beach on uncrowded waves (four of us maximum), swim at Little Beach and lunches at Shoal Bay Country Club and the new Rick Stein at Bannisters (fancy!) Thanks to all of you for the great tips, we had a ball!

This morning, it was tough to wake-up but such a beautiful start of the week… I will let you judge by yourself.

Morning guys,

Yet another cracking day down the beach!

I joined my mate Matt for sunrise, then coffee with the rest of the Morning Bondi crew and swim. On days like this it’s extremely hard to leave the beach and even to stop taking photos.

The light was just incredible, almost fluro orange at sunrise then golden, The dream of every photographers, hence why we call it the “golden hour”

Anyhow, enough blabla, here are the photos…

How good was this morning? The sunrise was epic, the water incredible (the best we’ve had for days) and the sunshine super bright!

The only drawback was that I had an early meeting so I had to squeeze everything in 45 minutes. That’s what I call a quickie! ;)

Pure Gold

Morning my friends,

Hope you all had a great weekend. How good was the weather yesterday! “Oh my goodness”, as my daughter would say!

This morning was stunning as well. I did miss the first lights and the crazy sky as I was looking after my daughter but the sunrise was a cracker, the mist, the waves, the water - Pure Gold.

One last thing, for the ones that follow me on Instagram, you might remember that photo that I took with my phone a couple of weeks ago (By the way, first time that I see a photo taken with my Google Pixel 3 printed, this phone is a bomb!). Well, I think I was on something when I started questioning when are these boats going out - the guys from the Wentworth Courier reached out and asked me if they could publish it in the magazine of this month. Right here, page 19 and it is still a mystery. Anyone?

Have a beautiful week guys,

Cheers,

Amaury

KISS

Morning my friends,

How was your long weekend my friends?! Mine was just very chilled, spending quality time with family and friends.

KISS, who doesn’t like one?! Just joking, I was just keen to talk about what I like in photography: KISS for Keep It Simple, Stupid. Basically I like very simple photography with no effects, camera tricks and crazy Photoshop. I guess this is partially because I’m a self-taught photographer and playing with long exposure, bracketing and all of that crap is not my thing. What I like with photography is capturing what’s in front of me and making sure that when I edit the photos, it looks as close as possible to what I saw - simple stupid!

What else can I say this morning, except that today I’m pretty happy with the photographs as they are exactly what I’ve described above - beautiful natural colours, silhouettes in the sun, waves crashing… You get the gist!

Oh one last thing, for the ones that follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my incredible unboxing video that I did with my daughter (to be honest, I’m glad that she was there, it makes it bearable to watch) I’m so bad with these things and yes I do have a strong French accent while my FrAussie daughter is like “Yeah, yeah, one again show!” Anyhow, my friends Aymeric and Clarisse back in Paris have launched an amazing brand of swimwear years ago called Gili’s Swimwear and I was begging them to implement it here in Sydney. They finally did with my other good mate Charles from L’Epicerie Agency. If you like Euro style swimwear that will make you better looking than you currently are, you should check them out and treat yourself with a pair. They are currently selling on The Iconic (men & kids only)

Enough selling, I will leave you with the photos…

Have a great 4-day week!

Hola amigos,

What’s up? How warm was this morning, it was already cooking at 6am!

As every Friday (for the last three really), we did some run-swim-runs with the gang. It’s tough but you feel so good afterwards! While we only did three rounds, the Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club crew who was training next to us smashed 5 rounds. Good on you champs!

Sunrise was a cracker, water incredible, I was with most of my mates and coffee was excellent - hard to do better than this really.

Two things that I wanted to mention, the first one is last night I was invited to the launch of Alex Crane brand in Australia. From Brooklyn to Bondi, if like me you like a good linen shirt, you should either go and check them out online or in their pop-up store in Paddington (288 Oxford St.) Thanks to the talented Jeff Lack for the invite!

The second one is as you know, I have been shooting with Olympus gear for quite a while and these guys have just released the new best camera on the market, the OM-D E-M1X. This thing is shit hot! (Excuse my French!) Canon, who?! ;)

Have a cracking long weekend and don’t go too crazy on Australia Day,

Atmosphere

Morning peeps,

How is everyone today?

What a lovely start of the day!

For a change, I took my sexy Olympus water housing for a swim. Taking photos in the water is by far the most challenging way to capture images. When you think that you’ve nailed a shot, you have droplets on the lens and that ruins the whole shot. Fun stuff I can tell ya!

One of the things that I love the most about my morning routine is the atmosphere. Just a bunch of happy people that love to start their days by the beach. I guess that’s what we call “Vitamin Sea”?! Love to meet all these friendly and salty faces in the morning!

My apologies for the late update but I had a couple of early meetings. For the ones that were very impatient to see the photos, you should definitely subscribe to the newsletter as the photos will come straight at you. No need to refresh your browser every 5 minutes to see if you’ve made the cut today or not. ;)

Have a cracking day my friends,

Ciao,

Sweet

Morning my friends,

What a sweet Friday!

It’s on days like these that I just don’t want to leave the beach. It was just too good this morning, for a few reasons!

#1 - Today is Friyeah!!

#2 - I was with four of my mates and we did some run-swim-runs!

#3 - The sunrise was a cracker and the water super-fine!

#4 - Heaps of happy people all around, ie. heaps of photo opportunities!

#5 - I met my new besties Akvile & Greta from Lithuania.

I guess that’s enough reasons…

Talking about sweet, yesterday arvo, I was invited to the incredible launch of the AllBirds Sugar Zeffers thongs in Point Pipper. The thongs are made of sugar, no joke! Read more at the bottom of this page and if you want to see how sweet was the partay, check my Instagram Stories before it disappears. Tough gig! :)

BOOM!

Have a fabulous weekend my good friends!
