On the weekend someone accidentally super glued my right eye shut. No bull. My right is my viewfinder eye – that you all see-through, as well, with my photographs.
After a ruthless Bondi drop-in, the violator flicked their board up, splitting open my forehead. No big deal, 2nd injury from reckless surfing for 2020, pretty routine stuff living around here.
At the medical centre, I think I must have got the work experience kid doctor, as they not only did they super-glued my wound shut, but they poured it into my right eye – sealing it shut. !@#!@#$! We eventually got it open and it’s all going to be fine, just pretty uncomfortable – I can see, I can shoot.
The moral of the story a) Don’t drop in b) If anyone is working on you with superglue, be careful, mask up, lie down and don’t let it dribble into your eyes!
I get asked every day for more North Beaches shots – so here goes. Lap it up Manly folk – wasn’t it one helluva day yesterday! We popped over there for a few waves and rays.
