Bondi 7am Onshore and really, really mushy

Locals Only

Yesterday was quite an amazing day to go surfing.

Today tis not so good. It’s horrendously onshore and overcast.

Instead of shooting onshore slop I opted to point my lens at the people I see down there, every day. There are hundreds that get up at sunrise and do their thing. Here is a few.

Adios :: uge

Miss Antarctica Charlotte Piho

Luke Daniels, local lifeguard (now tv celeb)

Garry Beath, bodysurfer in the middle for 20 years (he reckons)

Jamie Verco once said "My Aquabumps idea ain't gonna work" circa 1998

Don't know her name, but she has great eyes that see all

I agree, just for today

Happiest little fella in Bondi, my son, Jet. Been down Bondi every day of his life.
