Nathan Odonell is an old friend of Le Sunshine’s from the heady days and long nights of living in Byron Bay. These days we’re both lurking in Sydney, trying to find a taste of salt wherever we can. Nath shares a penchant for looking at waves through a lens so when I saw the gems he’d captured from a stella Thursday some weeks ago, I thought it best to convince him to share them with us all… enjoy.
It was the 10th July 2014 and we knew it was on, we could smell it. We were up at dawn and got to South Narrabeen at 6.30am . The tide was high, the smell of coffee mingled with the heavy odor of awe and anticipation as we watched two guys and a jet ski dodging heaving sets.
