We went for a little camera walk tonight and found where heaven meets the Earth..
What do ou do when it’s 45 outside and you can cook a egg on your head its so hot ??? You take the Gopro out for a swim,then take some fun photos to blog about when you get home (under the fan).. After about 20min you can feel the sun burning your skin so we where quick, but here are the photos from our outing 🙂 have a great day day and see you all soon with some new Photos..
Hmm someone told us there would be waves here 🙂
Found one or three with the Mikey Viv & Sara
Mikey killing it on my 5’11 Fatito don’t know if he’ll give it back next time he get’s his hands on it, he got all the fun one’s that day GRRRRRRR…… Went to the Dewmini Roti Shop for some great food, i could have eaten there all day. If you are in Mirssa you need to go if you will regret it !!!!! Sara & me with happy bellys
This is that happens when you drink with the cazyz all afternoon, you end up doing a drunken photoshoot 🙂
Uh no not me – so we went down the coast on Saturday morning looking for some leftover swell. There wasn’t much left so I settled for some cheese & spinach rolls, a pod of dolphin and some little ripples at sharkies beach.
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….
Some photo’s from the road below.
Pedro our trustworthy van is staying at home this year.
But he fits 4 surfboards, 3 camping chairs, a gas stove, 10 liters of water, two hammocks, cooking stuff, camera gear, lap tops, skateboards. Pretty much anything, it’s so nice not having to pack and travel light for a change.
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.
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
This is one of my all time faves on the South Coast – Green Island or Cunjurong point.
Let’s go surfing Paxito!
Water was even nice for body surfing…
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 🙂
I’m pretty sure I’m suffering from some sort of post holiday trauma by being back in the office and not eating enough nasi goreng…
So Friday at 5:15 PM – here’s my pick up!
Heading south on the M1 – just flying through traffic and watching the sun go down.
Woke up to this, photo’s might not show it but the Golf Course looked pretty much the best I’ve ever seen it. Just that there was a bloody longboard competition on so we decided to keep looking for waves.
To messy/small/windy/wrong swell direction/ugly/not feeling it – you name it – we found it.
So back to the drawing board = keep on heading south…
We probably would have paddled out here but then skippy said locals only and scratched his nose and I’m not sure what that means so back on the road. Again.
This looks like a brand new spot for us – and only two people out? We would have paddled out here if it wasn’t to crowded?
Here we go – did not find waves but Noel, Billy & Takea!
& this guy wanted to join to…
So now it looks like we might have found some surf but not to sure, so just doing some board drumming…
Really looks like we’ve found something?
Oh yes when in doubt – let’s surf the pond!
(Actually we did surf and I borrowed Noels mini-mal and I had about a million fun waves so now I feel like I have to buy a long board. Like a 9 feet log. But with that comes a logistic issue since someone is very against having roof racks on top of the VW. )
It doesn’t take long to get used to the traveling life again, we’re spending a lot of time doing not to much which takes up a lot of time for some reason. Since we spent a lot of time here there’s a lot of familiar faces and Bali is just one of those places that people come back to and tend to stay for a long time so we’ve been pretty busy doing some catch ups with friends we haven’t seen in a while.
Surfboard parking outside room number 9 – sembilan.
Stopping by Maruf and his lovley wife Dewi who has a cute little warung up the street for a coffee and some food.
Maruf does surf trips to G-land (Pax has been last time) and Red Island – much recommended. This time we don’t have enough time for it.
Picking up our washing – now we smell good again.
Longest left hander in Bali? Anyways so much fun!
Another coffee – tastes so good after surf 🙂
Bintang and sunset time
After a great afternoon surf its nice to come back to the best outdoor shower ever.
Great way to finish the day a chill in the hammock and watching the sun go down.. xx
Someone said there’s a new September weather record with two days over 30 degrees in a row or something like that. Doesn’t matter it’s like summertime again – the last days has been so freaking hot here in Sydney! I’m loving on walking in thongs again and finally it’s still a bit of daylight left after work. Some photos from last night, we had take-away dinner by the beach down in South Cronulla after checking the waves on our way home. Wish I had time to surf after work because it looked so clean and fun, maybe after next week when we change the clocks. And it’s 2 days left until Bali…
Yesterday – talking about the labor day-Pax birthday week that we’ve both have off in October. Figured we’d do a roadie maybe up north somewhere. But then I’m not sure well I ended up booking tickets to Bali instead. It’s just for a week but still bikini surf and 5 dollar massages – here I come. It’s the most expensive tickets to Bali I’ve ever booked from here and also the shortest stay with only 8 nights but we’re off next Friday and I’m so happy!! I can’t wait for that heat to hit me when I step out of the plane, waking up somewhere in noisy Kuta complaining about how much things have changed since last time. Getting a bike and driving off to find some waves somewhere. Eat Sleep Surf on repeat.
We’re back on the road, or at least we where for the weekend. Drove down to Gerringong on Friday night, Pax watched the game (uhmmm the AFN, NRL or whatever it’s called) at the bowling club while I lost my money at the pookies. Saturday morning we headed for Bendalong and Green Island hoping the waves where gonna be alright. Uhhh not quite was just a 30 minute non stop paddle, every time I stopped paddling it was like the island was moving forward.
How a beach can be owned by a private company itself… well anyways if you follow the beach as far north as you can from the south of cronulla you’ll get to Boat Harbour. That’s what we did on sunday after – deciding the surf was too small and full, going back home to pick up something someone forgot. Boat Harbour is a tiny community with a few small beach shacks that reminds me a bit of Christiania in Copenhagen but a bit more low key or maybe a lot. There’s no electricity and the people who live there’s pretty much off the grid I guess and I always find that so fascinating. Let me see where I can sign up for my own shipping container. Before they bulldoze it all away and build a business park.
Photos below I snaked from the internet.
Was a long weekend for us since I had the Monday off and Pax usually doesn’t work Mondays so – Hello to you again Crescent Head! Crescent Head is a sleepy beach town five hours drive north from us (depending on traffic ;)), somewhere in the middle of us and the Gold Coast maybe. I’ve been there a few times before but this is the first time I actually surfed the main point. It’s been so overcrowded when we’ve been there before and there’s so many good options for uncrowded waves in the area but Saturday morning I had some super duper fun waves again (hello right hand point break I missed you). Then the swell and some stormy weather rolled in and made a big mess of the ocean so we resorted to the pub for pool, drinks and a few games of shit head.
Our on the road home.
Stopping in Forster on our way back to Sydney.
Cold pressed juice stop – so nice when you find some good food on the road.
Boomerang Beach outside Forster, we need to do some exploring around this area to.
While my colleagues been out and about I’ve been working from home which means I have time for early (7:30 is earlyish enough in winter right :)) morning surfs, coffee walks to check the waves and maybe a lunch time run along the esplanade. Pure winter bliss!
Photo from the car this morning. It’s a record low for me in Australia I think, it was 5 degrees outside so freezing. School holidays and surf looked like so much fun for all the groms out there, westerly winds and yeah we went to work 🙂
Got up the other morning and this is what i found, hope you like it as much as i did !!!!! 🙂
The west coast side , Taranaki was windy, rainy, choppy and just to messy to surf so we cruised over to the east coast trying to find some waves. One really good thing with being on an island, two sides of coast. How much fun can you have driving the kombi?! Ha ha I’ve lost the gears so many times, but everyone want’s to be your friend. I say let’s get one in Australia.
Nice sunny weather on the other side, perfect little offshore wind, waves where so clean and yeah pretty much no swell, we had a quick paddle but just to small. Wish we had a longboard with us. I want to come back and explore this side of the coast some more next time.
Walked up the mount instead, look at the lines of swell coming in… but not happening.
