Where do I even begin?
I came out to Australia with very little plan and still very tired from Indonesia exploring.
I met an awesome Aussie couple on my last week in Bali and they offered that I crash on their couch for a few nights in Bondi, They ended up being the most epic, welcoming people I have met.
Thank you so much to Tori and Dale for letting me crash and showing me around true Aussie style, I will never forget this and I appreciate everything so much.
I was lucky enough to shoot the BONDI BOWL-O RAMA skate contest, a contest that I have always fantasized about going to especially every year watching Zach on the live webcast kill it.
When the contest started to role around I got to link up with some of my best friends, Shea Donavan (New roommate), Nick Ardecky (old roommate), Taylor Fischer (Epic media creator), Beaver Flemming, and many many more as all the pros started to come into town, It almost felt like we had a chunk of Encinitas with us on the other side of the world.
After I left Tori and Dales place, the Backpackers Hostel that was literally across the street from the event and beach offered to host me in return for a video, gladly I took them up on this offer and the staff and every people at this place immediately felt like a family. Hands down one of the most amazing Hostels I have ever step foot into.
I cant even begin to start naming off all of the amazing people I met at this hostel and the friendships we will forever keep, but luckily we have social media now to keep in contact as everyone is from different parts of the world.
One of my favorite days, was finals day of the Bondi Bowl-o-rama, I was busy shooting all day and during the pro final intermission I came back to the room and was surprised to find Taylor Fischer, Nick Ardecky and our new friend LOCKY in our room, this ended up turning into the sickest room and travel crew I have had yet while traveling.
I dont want to blab for too long, so here are some images and a video wrap from the event!
