Pama Davies Is Something Great To Come Out Of Bondi Beach
High tolerance, high performance.
Bondi Beach, birthplace of Stab and Australia’s most iconic and frustrating surfing locale. It’s a wave for the terminally desperate, a place where expectation is your enemy. Think confused sandbanks, a lineup of off-duty corporates, travelling adolescents, swimmers, softboards, mini-mals and perhaps on the occasion, a glimmer of head turning action (towelling off at the showers, that is). It’s certainly not the type of environment you’d expect to incubate future surf talent. For this reason Pama Davies is an anomaly.
Earlier this year he inked with Rusty, sliding into the slipstream of previous flagship, Noa Deane and the current world’s most entertaining surfer with a bowl cut, Harry Bryant. He’s been on a number of strike trips since, from South Australia to Fiji, compiling clips as any sound-minded freesurfer does. Coupling firsthand experience watching Pamatatau on home turf with the R-dot’s talent record and the handful of minutes above, and we have here a name to add to your radar.
