Yep thats for sure, it was an insane weekend! I can barely walk after swimming around all Sunday, beating rips and dodging blueys….time of my life! Floating around in the soup with the planets best surfers, in your own backyard, you ain’t going to better that!
I thought ahead and hired a 200m port from the Aquatech crew down the Gong. It was a challenge to shoot with; focus flying all over the shop, and water drops I don’t usually have to worry about too much when shooting with a dome port. The best fun Ive had in years though! Bondi really turned the taps on and delivered some sizable chunks for the boys to play with.

Pretty pumped to see Kelly Slater, Taj Burrow and Jordy Smith busting out their best moves for the Boost Mobile SurfSho @ Bondi Today and the weekend. The first international surfing competition to take place on Bondi Beach in over 20 years, the three-day event will see the most exciting aerial surfers from across the globe competing for a $30,000 prize on Bondi’s famous waves.
Nine time World Champion Kelly Slater said “It’s been a long time between drinks for a contest at Bondi, since ’88. I like Bondi a lot, it’s cool. It’ll be fun to be there and have a contest. It doesn’t sorta happen there very much. Usually its Rod Kerr running around the beach in his Speedos. But the rest of us are going to show up and wear our trunks. We’ll see you there.”
Knack will be down there with cameras both in and out of the water. We’re pretty stoked to have the world’s best surfing our local.
Stay tuned for some shots.
