Directed by filmmaker Jack McCoy, this video seventeen surfers sporting neon lights on their wet-suites welcomed the arrival of summer in the wee hours of the morning. Great music to accompany a neat effect.
In case you're wondering, Bondi is in Australia and when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.
To mark the start of summer, Strongbow joined forces with legendary surfing filmmaker Jack McCoy (Endless Summer II), Bali Strickland and Eugene Tan (Aquabumps) to capture Australia's largest glow in the dark surf attempt at Bondi Beach. On summer's eve, 17 Strongbow surfers descended on Bondi Beach in custom made glow-in-the-dark surfboards and wetsuits as an official "welcome to summer" for Strongbow. Channel 10's Bondi Rescue lifeguards, Corey Oliver and Andrew Reid, were among the surfers taking part. Hundreds of onlookers lined the beach and the Bondi Icebergs balcony to catch a glimpse of the spectacle.
