Kobi Graham: it hurts

Bondi Rescue lifeguard Kobi Graham suffered a hideous wipe out at Cape Solander mid afternoon on Sunday May 30. Kobi took off on a slabbing 6-8ft bomb and kind of nose dived, free falling head first into the reef at “Ours”.

For those that don’t know “Ours” is a notorious big wave surf spot just outside the entrance to Botany Bay.
