Working on the next level of quick pop-up so , lots of wipe-outs for me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0xLNuegYl4
Today was mostly 3, 4, and 5 foot Close-Outs. couple of short rides, but the rest was wipe-outs and paddling and just survival for me lol. Better than doing nothing, but I do miss some nicely sloped waves.
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
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).

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
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 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
