Greenhills beach first time today, small ranging from half a foot to 2 foot (rarely). I got my first right, but yeah it was very small and died off. Had fun though! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1tBV-qJwuqI6qK9S9wJH22hmjq7cbDx0s
Surfing today, I got a blue bottle tail stuck on my hand and palm when paddling, it wasn't that bad to be honest, I don't remember them having such a weak sting. Anyway I got some good waves today and realised - I did the best i could. It may be time to find a … Continue reading Blue Bottle
My sister came out today, had mad fun, more than I bet she thought she would!, she almost stood up on her first time. But the best thing was - It was small, and easy for her to stand at low tide. Ben's knot came undone on his new leash attachment, I re-tied his lesbian … Continue reading Sister
Today was the first time I ever went to a different beach, I went down south to meet my mate Chad, who was already out the back at the north end. The setup of Rip currents was different st this beach they went out then fed into a set, then you had to paddle left … Continue reading Sharkies
Charmaine had her first try today, after just a couple of goes lying on the board, she figured out to push up, and then move the hands back a bit lower and push up.

So I took Jack out yesterday, and I walked out with him in the South end of the beach. It was low tide so we could walk almost out to get on the wave with no paddling, which was perfect for Jack to learn. I gave him a demo of where to lie, how to … Continue reading Jack’s first ride.
Today for the 2nd time, my brother in law came surfing, he used his new board for the first time. We had amazing conditions at the South End, and 1ft 2ft waves, I think there was a couple of 3 ft. But they were all a great ride when we could get them. I'm hoping … Continue reading My Brother-in-law
Finally I am going left, which is mad, only for a short time, but any progress is good! Today was around 1ft and 2ft waves. They looked better than what they were, I could basically paddle through any wave that broke on me on my foam 8ft board, and the wave would hardly push me … Continue reading Finally
So it makes sense that, when it rains, the surfaces of the streets get rinsed, go down the drain and get run out to sea. And it explains why there is so much pollution in the water after it rains a while. It might be worthwhile me investing in ear plugs for the water so … Continue reading Pollution.
Yesterday I was out at the north end of Maroubra Beach and I decided there was too many other people out in the water. I tried to find a better spot, there was a bit of a better spot near the flagged area. The flagged area is for swimmers only, no surf-craft allowed. As I … Continue reading Lifeguard
