The South Bondi Surfboard Riders Club Logo – updated yet again.
< This baby … and I want to talk about whatever it is we are looking at here. Because I’m not sure and I’ve been wearing the thing for, I dunno, twenty years? Forty?
What’s the surfer wearing? Nobody I know has three arms and catches waves.
And the dance move? Travolta? Was he born then?
And the suggestion of a misshapen, though impressively large male appendage? Getting that weapon loose of the boardshorts would strangle a herniated prolapse. But then again, maybe that’s what the third hand is doing. Easing a fraught passage.
Was someone taking the piss here?
Who was responsible for the Artwork? Somebody must know. Bondi has its ancients.
Mr Terry Jenkins! Step forward. You’re the man for our history and you regularly drink coffee with the ones who helped make it. So it’s down to you find out who who created this thing, and I reckon it was a sheila, that being the case Ted the red might have some insights.
TJ, always the gent, has sent along a stylish 1950 version of the logo (below), suggesting that the later cap version is a little suspect in its origins, like most of the blokes wearing it.
Ask yourself old-timer, would you walk around Bondi wearing this clobber??
