Lots of pretty stoked people in camp after yesterday’s barrelfest… today’s a little bit smaller, but still looking good, but everyone in good spirits, despite a couple of creased boards, broken boards and broken fins… I was just finishing lunch (fresh sweet and sour fish- yum) when I saw Mick the surf guide coming from […]
