Hell hath no fury like mother nature when she is wet and boy did she rain this weekend but that didn’t stop 1000’s of people flocking to Manly Beach Australia for the Hurley Australian Open of Surfing.
The 9 day event consisted of surfing, skating, live music performances and art installations as well as more industry parties and piss up’s than you could poke a stick at.
Grommie’s crumbed sausaged themselves at the Channel V stage to The Presets and Birds of Tokyo whilst kids on dad’s shoulders fist pumped. Girls hung out the front of the athlete tent drooling and hoping for a glimpse of Mr. Julian Wilson whilst 100’s crammed in the bleachers to watch the skating events including best trick and big air.
Massive congratulations to Brazillian Adriano de Souza for taking out the Australian Open and crowd favourite Pedro Barros for going HAM every time he hit the skate bowl.
Time for some fucking sleep..
