Dropping swell, but good times…

The swell has been dropping off but there’s still small but fun G-land to be had… and still no crowds here really….there’s been a daily crew heading to Tiger Tracks as well, just for a bit of a change, some highly rippable waves there, with the Davidson’s from Australia taking full advantage, mum and dad Brett and Joy, and their sons, Ridge (13), Kurt (11) and Angus (8) have been having heaps of fun… Photoslut’s been enjoying the uncrowded rights way too much….

After I put back the dislocated shoulder for the guy at Bobby’s camp they extended an invite for dinner and beers to myself and my sidekick the African Badger (aka PhotoSlut)… so off we went up the jungle track expecting a bit of civilised dinner washed down with a couple of cold bintangs… when we got there, the dining area was fairly quiet and we were anticipating a quiet night. Oh how wrong. It was one of the guy’s birthdays so the staff led a parade of dancing and singing happy birthday with a cake, and things escalated from there…. It was good to see that Hawaiian CJ was doing well and had a smile on his face, he came to join us for a drink, then came the Aussie crew, and with them the Duty Free Jim Beam… then JD…. then more JD… then rum…. we sacrificed ourselves for the good of others, and the next day G-land was pumping…

So since then I have been recovering…

We’ve had yet another perforated eardrum… guys take blu tack on your travels in case it happens to you- it’s the best thing for keeping the water out…

In the downtime, African Badger, with Bintang in one hand has taken to doing some surfboard art- Dan is stoked with the results, we’ve smashed our way through Entourage 6, Badger and Pat have had some epic ping-pong battles… For mellow guys, the average surfer is a competitive beast….

Stay tuned…
