Taking the day off

Johnno is taking some rec leave this week and there was word of a good south swell over the border, so we did a bit of a road trip south. It ended up being a bit of a Goldilocks story – we checked a beach that was a bit too exposed to the swell and south wind (hot), then went somewhere too protected (cold), and ended up somewhere nicely in between (just right!). Unfortunately the wind swung crosshore and mushed it up a bit before I could get many good ones but it was still fun to get some long peelers. Shots of riders were by Johnno, cheers mate.

Fat out the back with the odd mutant shorey but just not quite doing it...

I was more casual about things. So casual in fact I leaned back too far stalling for the barrel and lost all my speed when it caught up. Oops.
