Rainbow Beach, Bonny Hills
By herwig
Nov 19, 2007
Lonesome Looser - Nobody there but me in the mornig, but too much onshore wind for the small waves. Very bad conditions, no ride longer than 10-15mtrs. The swell dropped to 1/3 of the size after the weekend. The weather report gave outsight for less wave

By bodyboarder local dude , 18-05-2007

a real local guess what! - I am 26 years of age and have had more bodyboarding sessions in bonnys than you have shits. As a matter of fact i was out when the 6m swell came through mid last year and thats the biggest its been for a while. Me and my mate were the only poor cunts to give it a go and i didnt see anyone else out they all pussed it and/or arent as passionate as me and my mates. LOOK DUDE GET WITH THE TIMES AND ENJOY THE WAVES AT MY BEACH
