We recently received an email from a bunch of friends over in Japan who run a magazine known as Glide. Their glossy pages consistently document and showcase some of the grooviest alternative surf from around the world. Last issue the guys travelled to San Fran to get a feel for the surf culture and now they have landed on our shores and asked us to show them around while in town.
Sydney, more precisely The Eastern Suburbs was their port of call. So 5am on Tuesday saw us down at North Bondi where we were greeted with a bow and a salty hazed sun. We arranged to meet Pama Davies (TCSS’ up n comer) and our own James Thomson. Quickly we waxed the fresh sticks then suited up only to be confronted by a nasty southerly and average wind blown swell. The boys had a crack but was a lot of work for little return.
Its rad when you meet people who share a common interest, both Junji and Kenyu weren’t phased by the conditions, rather stoked to be in Sydney hanging and shooting like minded people. By this stage everyones stomachs were starting to rumble so we trekked up to Porch & Parlour, met up with Eugene from aqua bumps where boys chatted photography over a spot of breaky. Before we knew it, it was time to go to work so we left the boys to explore.
The Sydney issue will be due out in April so keep an eye out!
