Where I stayed
At the beach
Yesterday I actually wanted to work on my thesis the whoooole day but I desperately needed a quick surf in the morning before starting with work. "Quick" turned out to be a four-hours-beach-session. That's the way I rule in Australia. There is no way avoiding spontaneous activities. They are everywhere. This time I got distracted by a surf competition at Bondi. And it wasn't just a beginner surf competition..no...all the most popular surfer competed against each other...! I took some great pictures of the tricks they did on their surf boards. I wish I would have had a better lens....
Awesome weather and a pretty good swell this day; the surfers had been very lucky this weekend. And they are soooo good. I have no idea how they are doing it. It is some kind of an art. It looks amazingly easy but just standing up on the board is a huge challenge. They are able to take the smallest waves, flying through the air as if the board is attached to their feet.
If you are interested...take a look at the pics!
