2013 / Thirty Years and 600 Yards

2013 / Thirty Years and 600 Yards

Every now and again things come together. March 2nd was a case in point. As luck would have it on the morning following my sons 30th Birthday, it was warm and sunny with a decent swell. It is a rare day when I have a chance to surf with Jacob and Ian at the same time; let alone 600 yards from the birthplace of the Bonzer. Unfortunately Duncan was not with us. The Campbell brothers times two would have been icing on the cake. A bit over forty two years ago Duncan and I had built the first Bonzer right down the street, and surfed it at the same peaks I was surfing with Ian and Jacob. Good waves at our old haunt are few and far between these days, and as I get older the past seems to whisper a little louder. But I’m not one to wax nostalgic, and with the Bonzer 5 turning thirty this spring, Duncan and I will be pushing on. We and the Bonzer 5 have got “10 miles to go on a 9 mile road”. A hearty thanks to all who have helped keep the Bonzer Energy flowing.

Peace and Love,
Malcolm

  • It’s truly very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, therefore I only use world wide web for that reason, and get
    the newest information.

    Great wave when it’s on. I was sleeping in my car,getting dusty and drunk back then. Went back many years later and got injured riding a spot close to where the photos taken. A sign?
    Now it has been over twenty years. Sober with a loving wife and son. Still surf or at least paddle around on a regular basis. Life goes on if you let it.
    Happy for you M. Boards look nice as usual and you seem to have your health back in check.
    Stay surfing. Aloha Campbell Family.

  • naturally like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it
    very bothersome to tell the reality nevertheless I’ll certainly come
    again again.
