Daves Bondi Blog

So sleeping in for this trip apparently means 0730. This we found out today. We hopped onto the train to bondi junction and then a bus to bondi beach. Total price $15 total round trip.

The water was a chilly 17c so all of the suffers were in wetsuits. We dipped our feet in the water and decided it may be worth waiting a while to go in. I figured that if I go for a beach run I would warm up and then the water would feel nice. 15min run later and I was neck deep in the pacific with waves crashing down. A rational person would go and lay on the beach. I decided to rent a wetsuit and board. For those of you who don't know yes I have surfed before and yes it was almost four years ago. Can't be that hard to remember right???

Wrong. Waves were much bigger than Hawaii and I can't remember ever feeling currents that strong. It took a while but I managed to get up and catch a few waves without swallowing too much water

There are lots of cool little shops all around bondi. We both found a few things for eachother. But now at 830 I am paying for two hours of surf and sun as I start to fall asleep.

We are heading onto the ferry to Manley tomorrow for another day at the beach.
