In less than 3 weeks the ocean, streets and spaces in Manly below our office will be invaded by the Hurley/Billabong Australian Open or Surfing. The last days have been blessed with great surf and it looks like we will have yet another week of good E swells. I can only hope that the comp gets at least one swell passing through so that the best surfers in the world get to showcase their skills.
As far as crowds go, Manly will turn into a circus even more so than what the regular visiting surfers and tourists do… but I think that we will get to see some epic action. With en masse events comes both the good, the bad and the ugly. Can’t wait!
