Almanac Surfing – Bells Beach: Women’s Final

For those interested in the water arts, here are some pics I took at Bells Beach on Friday.

Sally Fitzgibbons and Courtney Conlogue surfed brilliantly in the final with, according to the commentator, point one of a point separating them at the end. But Courtney rang the bell.

About Paul Spinks

I have writing published and performed in various mediums, but usually not enough of it to pay the rent. Had many jobs, travelled a lot, so I think this experience allows a broad perception of society. I'm not an academic, though did complete a BA as a mature-age student. Below are links to some published written pieces.


  1. These surfers are incredible athletes. Great snaps.

    Thanks, Dips & E.
    Yes, amazing balance, Dips. The men also appeared for a cameo – think that’s Nat Young in the red vest, upside down.
