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
Me and my brother-in-law went surfing today, his leash plug broke on the board, nearly everywhere you look for them is sold out, unless overseas. He went for a drive and bought some of the "sex-wax" brand plugs that he believes should be stronger, (hopefully). Well the leash rope was stronger than the actual bar … Continue reading Broken Leash Plug
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. I went off on my own after that, I should have stayed and reminded her to move across. Anyway, Charmaine paddled … Continue reading Charmaine’s first experience!
I went left today for a nice long ride, for the first time ever, i was actually going fully left along a wave and had a nice long ride, and it was cut shorter than I’d like though, by some lesbian tourist and her boyfriend dropping in on the same wave together on 1 board … Continue reading First Left
Today wasn't good for learning but I got a few, got smashed hard in the face by my board a couple of times, beach was closed due to dangerous rips, which meant messy conditions but less swimmers and surfers out there so I could pick my own little spot often. Only people out there today … Continue reading Mad Fun, but rough surf.
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
Apparently it's windy and choppy surf today and 0.5m. so I headed out and it was a bit sloppy, north end had ok 1 and 2 foot waves. But way too many people were on them. I caught a couple of good ones and it died off back to swell. I headed to the far … Continue reading Small and choppy
My first board came today, one for me and one for my brother in law. It's a foamie / fun board 8 foot. I just dropped down to it from a 9 foot so it'll take some getting used to. But it should be the board I'm with for a long time as I improve.
