Wow what a wonderful winter weekend in Bondi. (And no W is not my favourite letter)….. I had my first experience of surfing and outdoor ice skating in the same day – ‘the Bondi Splice’. In the past I’d heard about people being able to do that in California and even Europe (in the winter months of course) but on Saturday I did it right here on Bondi Beach! Well, I actually have to thank my 8 year old….She dragged me kicking and screaming onto that ice rink – as children have the ability to make you do things you really don’t want to do (but that’s a whole other story)….
Anyhoo, …I was competing in the monthly Bondi Girls Surfriders Comp from 7.30-12.30 on Saturday …. in longboard and shortboard divisions…. (I like to make the most of it!). Then after that, I went ice skating…and guess what….it was fun! The air was warm, there was a real buzz and watching the waves, whales and dolphins as you skate around was inspiring!! Plus it was an all round work out – arms while surfing and legs whilst skating – (which is really only a good thing these days!)
Yep gotta admit it…. I love Bondi!…….
