Flash Float is in! photo © Sandy Coffey
After some careful research on many culture and tech websites, a crew of like-minded locals made a (fun) list of what they think is going to be cool, and what’s on the way out this year. If all of this comes true, 2023 is going to be a great time to be alive!
What’s Hot: The following are going to be in, supercool, and rising during 2023.
Ice cream for breakfast (add fruit if you need some health)
Crocs n socks
The Flash Float (super cool)
Groynes (saving St Francis)
SALT – place to be
Anger management (c’mon, no pushing please)
Beach Blonde lager – kept us alive through the summer hols.
Billys Beach (ballies evening)
Soft top surfboards (stop being so dogmatic, surfers, embrace the future)
Bistro Vin De Boeuf
ONE 33 Rum, as well as the Rosemary and Black Olive Gin
Dawn Patrols (Golf and surfing)
Community spirit (sharing when times are good, maintaining strong street security)
Aha (take on me)
What’s Not -The following are uncool, super yucky and on the way out in 2023.
Holiday cyclists (seriously people, WTF was all that about?)
Holiday jetski cowboys (slow clap..)
Facebook (it sucks, a lot)
Local online bullies (You know who you are)
Banana on pizza )it’s making a comeback)
Brandy and coke (aka Vitamin B & C) Tasty, but eventually leads to the taste of blood in your mouth
Carbohydrates (apparently, in the olden days, they used to eat toast!)
Self-righteous indignation (how dare you write this! etc)
Tik, crack and Tik Tok – all highly addictive
Jelly skateboard sweets (they are actually a thing)
Macon on pizza (It looks like bacon, and it tastes like bacon, but it’s not bacon.)
Schooling ( Education is important, but surfing is importanter)
