Bondi Surf Club Ocean Swim Race (Week 10) 27th November 2016

Nov 27, 2016 Short but sweet update. Meagher was on patrol with Roger Butler at the helm, supported by John Slack-smith as IRD.   The surf was messy with big sets coming through on a regular basis. It was decided to not hold the race due to conditions so all who came down got two points.  A […]

Surf Race (week 8) 13th November

Nov 16, 2016 Fellow Surfers’, We were blessed with another great morning; the surf could have been a little better, however, nothings perfect.
