The Humans of Bondi

Bondi gets such a bad wrap in Summer. I post a shot of a packed Sunday and loads of crew comment saying that’s their worst beach nightmare. To be clear, it’s rammed, choccas, overflowing with humans only about 5% of the time. The rest of the time Bondi is pretty peaceful joint with a solid community […]

The Curtain

A large, thick curtain of cloud blanketed most of the morning light. A tiny gap in the clouds along the horizon is all we had to work with. Waves are small at Bondi, but pleasurable. NE swells better suit beaches around the corner like Tamarama on the low, or Da Bra. A 21-year-old man was pulled […]

A fitting send off for a very loved Bondi local. RIP Annalise.

Double Demerits

Hey, happy new year! 2019 is your year – I know it. Like many people from Sydney, in particular Bondi-ites, we made the summer pilgrimage to the magical Cape Byron. It’s a decent drive and the major A1 upgrade is only half finished – I still can’t believe all that traffic funnels through 50km/hr zones and tiny single lanes. Hectic. […]
