Nice’n’clean’n’neat this morning after yesterday’s blow. Shame there’s barely any swell. It’s still from the NE, but struggling 1-2 foot. Seems to be dropping fast as well. The water temp. was the topic of convo this morning – it’s plummeted to a ridiculous temperature and colder than that freaky cold Sunday 2 weeks ago…my guess 15-16 degrees. Now I know that all you hell men from Scotland, Ireland, Alaska and Chile are going to email in and call us big girls, but that’s cold for this part of the world. Especially when it was 20 degrees just the other day.
Local surfer, Clayton Walker is battling a fight with cancer. As with all his previous challenges he is hoping for a complete victory, however this treatment is not only a physical drain but a financial one too leaving it to the local community and friends to help a mate in need. Tomorrow, 11th December 2010 will hold a fundraising day for Clay…a day of epic proportions involving a tag team surf comp at South Bondi followed by a big night. At 6pm, upstairs at THE BEACH ROAD HOTEL some great items will be falling under the hammer to raise money for Clayton’s treatment. If you are a sports buff or just want to grab some amazing Christmas presents then this is not to be missed. Up for grabs will be Mike Tyson’s signed gloves from his last fight, Taj Burrow autographed firewire surfboard, a host of other boards such as fomies, some artwork from us, Lee Stacey custom, Mctavish mal, Mountain Bike, and some very special signed rugby league, a-league and cricket gear and much much more. So smash open your piggy bank and let’s help a mate smash cancer.
