70 x rip rescues (yes, 70!)
1 x random bashing with a spikey steel pole (who had $7,000 cash on him at the beach) – read
1 x spinal injury
1 x heart attack
1 x mermaid lost at sea…who’s now found.
100 x tattooed skaters (including Tony Hawk and Steve Caballero) here for the Bowl-a-rama
All this has gone down since we last talked yesterday. Sometimes I think this joint is just gonna explode. There is just SO much going on, everywhere I look. Bondi Rescue will have enough content from yesterday alone to run all season.
The rip at South Bondi is a corker. It will drag you out even if you’re firmly standing in the shallows. I have no idea why it’s so strong when the surf is only 1 foot, but the Bondi lifeguards had one of the busiest days of the year yesterday. Hectic.
Good luck to The Bondi Boardriders who are competing this weekend in the Newcastle Australian Boardriders Battle. Blitz ’em boiz.
