Bondi Visit and flying Back to NZ March 22, 2010 by Angie Koops (Surfer)

Hi guys I recently went to Bondi for the Boost airshow event Dru was in. I got to hang out with Dru in the competitors area where the likes of Kelly Slater and all the airshow surfers hung out.  It was great because they supplied food, espresso coffee and drinks of all sorts all for free so that was a bit of a bonus. It was a really fun two days, this year Dru had to compete in the trials even through he was a finalist the year prior and runner up the year before that. It was his first surf at Bondi and it was the hardest conditions, I was glad that I wasnt out there.

Anyway he got through his first heat by lading some good airs but the next heat he made a few silly mistakes he regrets and didn’t make it through – but he learned some good lessons and will be back next year.  In all it was a really good event. So many people where at Bondi it was crazy!

I’m coming home to NZ in 8 days; so excited!  The nz nationals are on April 1-5th so I will be heading to that and then cruising over to Taranaki for the womens champs event which is a pretty special event as there is a wild card up for grabs for the womens CT.
