Back to the jungle. What a feeling. Arriving Monday, with a new swell on the cards. Since then it’s been 3 days of cooking Money Trees, with the odd launching pad & speedies sets on the high. A solid swell arrived this morning, with the first dosage of carnage! Broken boards, leggies, & plenty of ego’s! Double over head ++. Even an apology to one of the guys at the camp from Roger Ramjet – the raging Seppo who wasn’t getting his predetermined daily wave count who then chased one of his fellow countrymen around the lineup until he couldn’t swear no more. Classic!
On the med front, young Banjo an 18 y.o. charger from Barwan Heads, Vicco, had a tangle with the nose of his brand new, self-made stick, & came off second best. After air dropping out of the lip, the heavy offshore blew his board vertically, resulting in a nasty puncture wound through his left leg, cutting deep into his thigh. Closer inspection revealed a worryingsome pulsating femoral artery. Luckily, the chopper back in Bali was available, & within a few hours Banjo was experiencing his first ever chopper ride back to the BIMC, with a plastic surgeon awaiting his arrival. All the best mate!
Righto, more swell forecasted for tomorrow & the forseeable future. Photos to come. Safe surfing!
