Last night, Bondi 9pm - Tron, bottom turn Last night, Bondi 9pm - Tron, bottom turn No. 27770

TRON 01.12.2011

Today is the 1st day of summer – coulda fooled me. The southerlies have rolled into town and temperatures are back into the 15-20 range. The SE wind is howling 30 knots and the bay is full of white caps and sloshy foam. I didn’t see a single surfer out this morning – now that is saying something. Hopefully when it all dies back there will be some clean fun little waves to surf.

Last night was quite something down at Bondi. Fireworks, night surfing in Tron suits with LED surfboards that glow. Wow, only in Bondi. I swam out there to snap some shots of the ‘Tron’ surfers of the night. No we didn’t see any sharks (seems to be a frequently asked question after swimming at Bondi for 1.5 hrs in the night)

    Next time someone ask about sharks, just tell them “Yep heaps of them, more and more every year, best stay out of the water” ;-)

    thanks Uge, maybe our Christmas New Year celebrations at the beach need something like this rather than the very unbeachlike and anti community events we now have!

  • Shane said |

    Yewww. We were there watching our friend Jane ripping it in those grubber waves.

    We saw you walk past Uge, but were too star struck to say hi haha.
