Yesterday was an amazing day. Biblical. The day started with perfect sunshine, great waves and then by 1pm the raging southerly front rolled in from out to sea – and I don’t think it’s stopped raining or blowing since.
Wow. It was one of the most intense storms I’ve seen.
Today – well, in comparison, it’s boring. The waves are onshore mush, I saw one guy, a Chinese tourist fully dressed trying to go for a swim (not recommended) – but that was about it down there this morning. I didn’t even shoot as sticking a lens out of the car window with pelting rain ain’t much fun.
Byron Bay wonder Kieren Perrow won big Pipe yesterday. Insert Clap.
“The Reef” a mash up of talented men – Jon Frank, Richard Tognetti and Mick Sowry travelled from Darwin to Perth this year, making music, movies and surfing along the way to form a mixed media performance. Tickets on sale tomorrow, 1 show only at the Sydney Opera House. Will be good.
The Aquabumps gallery is open today. Good thing about this rain is you’ll probably get a park right out the front. Telephone 02 9130 7788 or email us any Christmas Present questions. We are open until 6pm every day.
