Should never have left the Island

Aduh scored her again! I’m so happy – yesterday was fuuuun on south coast 🙂 Not like last weekend but still fun waves, had to wait a bit for the set but when they came long peeling and glassy. Watching the moon go down and sun come up. MAGIC. Life is amazing when you’re actually living it. Then coffee and more surf. Decided to head back home early, I’m covered in a sea lice rash looks like I’ve got chickenpox.

14 days on the road. Let’s make it 365?

We’ve just done 14 days on the road over Christmas and New Years. Back in Sydney and it’s time to start planning for the big one as in the big trip. The year of 2015 is going to be a travel year. Ever since me and Pax met we’ve talked about doing a big trip together. “If haven’t killed each other living together for a year it’s time to go”. We have a wedding in Thailand on the agenda in March but other than that the road is pretty much open 🙂 Welcome 2015 – we’re going surfing! Where?! Maybe Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Central America….

Australia must be the best country for road trips, you’ll find toilets (with paper), out door showers close to every beach almost, outside free BBQ’s and why not a little picnic house when the sun is to strong.

Happy holidays & the new GoPro 4

Guess what I got for my birthday?! Oh yes a new GoPro the version 4 – I’m so spoilt, ha ha! Anyways it’s already Day 10 of our Christmas/New Years roadtrip on the South Coast and here’s some water shots from the last few days. We’ve got so many photos and videos but not to much internet. Waves been pretty small and the summer seems to be hiding somewhere 🙂 Anyways enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you next year 🙂 Lot’s of love <3

Lazy Sunday ocean dwelling

Not much going on the last few weeks. I’ve been away for work and now it’s almost December – end of the year… We had a nice visit from the Gold Coast over the weekend – Kumi came down so we went for a drive. Not to many waves around but ocean is getting warmer and it was so hot on Sunday so nice for a paddle 🙂 I got a wrist strap for the GoPro and figured I’d take it for a try – it’s a bit to big for me but worked alright. Let’s see if I can get a wave with it next time 🙂
