The claws of winter were digging deep this morning. I got down the beach in the dark and it was bitterly cold. My phone said it hit 2 degrees this morning (my phone seems to know everything). That wind was icy and cut through the layers.
Good lil’ bank down at Bondi for surfing. The current small south swell loves it (S 180 degrees). All-star cast paddled out for the early… the threat of an incoming south storm got everyone out in the waist to shoulder high conditions.
There’s a guy in Bondi who always accosts me on the street to write about his photography competition. He’s a nice guy, passionate photographer and window cleaner. I checked out his comp site last night and was impressed with the entries…really impressed. Then I read you have to be a non-pro to enter and I was even more impressed again. Wow. I see so many of you shooting pics down the beach, try entering the Shutterbug Awards (entries close 31st August 2012). So there you go Marc, Shutterbug up in the big lights…I’ll have a flat white please!
Last night I also watched the preview to Storm Surfers 3D featuring Tommy Carroll, Ross Clarke Jones and Benny Matson. That’s right, a 3-D surfing film. Ground breaking stuff. Some of the shots make you feel like you’re surfing 20 footers with Ross. Highly recommended…but…you gotta go to the cinema for the full 3D experience. Get Tix
Now, after you’ve done the above two items, just buy yourself the new Ben Howard Album and we will be best mates forever.
