Wollongong musician dies in Bali surf

Wollongong surfer Jae Haydon has died after surfing record waves off the coast of Bali on Sunday. Haydon was 35. He was known as a member of Lost in Line and a passionate musician. He was touring Indonesia at the time.

Two surfers reportedly pulled his body onto their board, but was washed off. His sister has released a statement asking for privacy during this time.

“Obviously in the 10-15-foot conditions the whitewash would have been powerful and obviously they weren’t able to maintain him on the board and lost him,” said Mark Brightwell, a friend of Mr Haydon’s.

Friends became increasingly alarmed after a broken surfboard identical to the 35-year-old’s later washed up at the nearby Uluwatu beach.

Indonesian authorities confirmed Badung lifeguards found a body floating in the water on Monday night, News Corp Australia reported.

Yesterday was a very tragic day not only for our local community but for the surfing community as a whole. @jaehaydon was surfing solid Uluwatu when he had a terrible accident finding himself unconscious and after failed attempts by a few fellow surfers to get him up on a board he was eventually lost in solid 6-8ft waves beneath the uluwatu cliffs. Jae was one of the nicest most well liked and not to mention talented young guys around! He would always light the room, stage, yard whatever venue with his warmth and incredible tunes that he was so good at and so well known for! These are a few pics jay sent me on the same board surfing the same place a year ago looking very comfortable! R.I.P jayboy you will be missed sending love to your family ❤️

Dagwood Dogs around the World

It might be the treat most synonymous with the Sydney Royal Easter Show, but what we know as the dagwood dog comes in many different forms around the world.


In Argentina, the dagwood dog is known as the panchuker and can be found at busy train stations for a hot snack for commuters. Instead of the batter we know and love, a panchuker is covered in a waffle-like pastry.


Only America could dream up a deep fried sausage on a stick. In the US, they’re known as corn dogs and are readily available in supermarkets and convenience stores. They were invented in the mid-1940s as a dinner time delicacy.

South Korea

Funnily enough, a corn dog is an extremely popular snack in South Korea. A corn dog translates to “hot dog” in Korean, confusing it with a genuine hot dog.

RECIPE: Cheese and chive scones

Scones have been around for centuries – they were first mentioned in text in 1513 in a Scottish poem, but were around even longer than that. There have been many varieties of scone all around the world, from Australia’s pumpkin scones to the American ‘biscuit’, so they’re always a favourite.
We all love a scone smothered in jam and cream alongside a cuppa, but for those who prefer a savoury taste try out these fantastic cheese and chive scones – perfect for afternoon tea or atop a casserole.
