Bondi Beach, February 7th 2011.
On February 7th, the pool looked torn, but a couple of days later, it was again a brand new pool with shining paint: Good Job!

Nice Blue Bowl...
Only 2 days to the Vans Bow-A-Rama contest at Bondi Beach and the practice is going full swing, day and dusk, on the newly repainted bowl. On Monday, Renton Miller, Pat Ngoho, Nathan Beck, Nilo Pecha, Michael Mulhall already arrived to test the new sticky blue bowl, and on Tuesday Bucky Lasek, Rune Glifberg, Sergie Ventura, Steve Caballero, Curren Caples, Josh Borden, Sky Siljeg, Omar Hassan, Andrew Langi, Jeff Grosso and Pedro Barros were also there… Curren Caples seemed like the kid of the day and Steve Alba the Master of the day while Pedro Barros and Pat Ngoho were training hard to keep their trophy from the Wellington contest.
