Nice little clean bump out there this morning with very few people around in the darkness (the sun didn’t pop out until 7:20am). Water is ridiculously warm, the sun is out, the wind is gentle – sounds good huh.
Most waves struggled above the 2 foot mark…odd bigger 3 foot set. Shame the banks haven’t come to the party and anything decent was closing out. Just a nice morning to be out there floating around. Thursday is the pick of the days this week.
‘The Happening’ is a celebration of surf culture and community. It reaches beyond the waves into the realm of music, art and film. After an overwhelming response to the 2008 event, The Happening finally returns to Australia this Friday night, 6:30pm at the Bondi Pavilion. The event will bring together in one space: Brushfire Records musicians Matt Costa, Zee Avi, Neil Halstead and Will Conner; film-makers George Greenough, Chris and Emmett Malloy – previews of 180° South and The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights – plus the exhibited works of contemporary artists from The Surf Gallery, California and local artists (and Aquabumps!). Come see. Purchase your tix here
I went to a Tama SLSC fundraiser once and Roy (as in Roy and HG) got up and spoke about Aquabumps, and how he got wind of a good shoe sale from reading this little daily blurb. Well Roy, Springcourt have now got a online store. Get a pair before they sell out – I wear ‘em every day. New website
PS – thanks for all your comments about our 11th year.
