Not even Merrick’s media stunt of swimming across Bondi could get me down there this morning. It was bucketing down and a good one to sleep in…onshore 2 foot slop can be a little demotivating.
Rather than subject you to 5 photos shot from the car with the windscreen wipers hammering, here’s some images from our recent Mentawai trip earlier this year. We got H-tees pretty solid/fun. Damn love those islands but they’re so volatile. There always seems to be something going wrong, a mudslide, a volcano eruption, an earthquake or tsunami. The people have nothing and need help with the recent tsunami devastation – so please contribute to the lead agency SURFAID. Read Phil Kiem’s (Owner of Mv Tengirri) account on what happened when the Tsunami hit. He’s been out there for 6 years….knows the islands well.
This weekend expect 2-3 footers around Sydney, mostly east swell but again – strong nuisance winds.
The Aquabumps Gallery is open all weekend 10am to 6pm…time to start ordering your Christmas gifts. 151 Curlewis Street Bondi beach NSW.
Have a great weekend, :: uge
