If I had to describe Bondi in a few words/images, I reckon this is how I’d do it:
1 - The Beach:
Surf, lifeguards, tourists drowning, guys in Speedos, backpackers waking up on the beach after a night at the Bondi hotel,… There definitely are nicer beaches over here (think WA), but Bondi’s beach is probably the most iconic one
2 - The surf:
Beginners dropping in, ripping locals, flying groms, cruisy longboarders, 1ft pancakes, 5ft close outs, rips, lefts, rights,… Bondi’s got it (almost) all!
3 - The locals:
Aaaah, the locals… Big sunnies, hats, flannel shirts, skinny jeans; 6am joggers, skaters, surfers, artists, photographers, yogis, models, backpackers…
Gotta love them!
4 - And gloablly… The super cruisy lifestyle!
Afternoon drinks, sunrise/sunset surf, roof top BBQs, grassy knoll (in)action, beach parties,…. And THAT’s why we all love that place!
