Idea of banning surfing at Sydney's world renowned Bondi Beach becomes a 'little bit overblown'

Any plan to ban surfers from a section of Australia's most iconic beach appears dead in the water.

The council in charge of Bondi floated the idea in a survey to locals as part of its annual review of risks at a number of beaches.

It asked whether any board with a fin should be restricted to the famed bay's southern end - as is now the case for boards made of fibreglass.

But Waverley Mayor John Wakefield on Wednesday insisted there was "no intention of banning surfboards on Bondi beach".

"The issue is becoming a little bit overblown," he told reporters in Sydney.

"No policy has been devised. No proposal has been received. There's a survey asking questions about what people perceive to be problems and potential solutions."

The question was put in the survey after Waverley Council moved a motion asking for a review of the definition of surfboards.

That was because "large numbers of people" in Bondi, particularly swimmers, were concerned about boards with foam tops being allowed between the flags, Mr Wakefield said.

"We're conducting a survey to find out the depth of the concern. (But) we believe we have the mix right now."

The results of the survey, which is costing several thousand dollars, are due back to council for consideration within two months.

Watch: 'Thank you for your sacrifice' - Rescued Thai boys pay tribute to Navy SEAL diver who died trying to save them

The Thai football team rescued from a cave has paid tribute to the former Navy SEAL diver who died attempting their rescue.

The team fronted media overnight, NZT, in the town of Chiang Rai, and paid respects to Lieutenant Commander Saman Kunan, 38, who passed away in the caves.

Kunan died on July 6 while installing air tanks along the rescue route needed to reach the boys.

The team were only told of Kunan's death on Saturday after doctors ruled they were mentally strong enough to take the news.

All members of the team confirmed at the conference that they will become monks to honour Kunan's memory.

The team's coach, known as Ake, said they all felt guilty about Kunan's death.

Titan, the youngest member of the team at age 11, stood in front of a framed portrait of Kunan to pay respects, saying "thank you for your sacrifice".

Kunan was given a state funeral on Saturday and the Thai king gave him a posthumous promotion of two ranks - from Petty Officer First Class to Lieutenant Commander.

Saman Kunan retired from the military in 2006 and worked at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport before volunteering to help when news broke of the boys being trapped.

He leaves behind a wife, Valeepoan Kunan, who told of her grief at losing him, but also told the boys not to blame themselves for his death.
