Xmas day started with 2 hours of surfing where my sister stood up for the first time, and then like 2 hours of flipping into a pool at my Aunties house with 10 year old kids. Was pretty cool, but I'm so sore today. Was actually ok with doing nothing but sitting down at work … Continue reading Xmas
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
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
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.
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 today, I turned the back of my board, successfully, Not saying I'm going left and right yet, but I'm saying I'm stable enough to start playing around with moving the board for the first time :). Can't wait to go out tomorrow!
So I spent 1.5 hours up the north end today, got on a few mad ones, but the best wave of the day, my leg rope wrapped around my feet and prevented me from widening my stance so I lost that one. I then moved down the south end for another 40 mins, heapppps messy … Continue reading Afternoon small messy but fun surf
So today was 2ft, and I went down the south end of Maroubra. I started standing up more often but still falling off most waves. An instructor I know from the surf school gave me a couple of tips, and Now I'm falling off way less. I'd say I'm standing up on 3 out of … Continue reading Today was awesome!
Patiare had a crack today finally got himself on the board and going. He stayed out for a whole 10 minutes and then he didn't come back in. I think he was put off by the difficulty, but that's all part of it. He says he's coming back in future, I hope so. I got … Continue reading Patty’s First Time
