First trip of the season...what a blast!!!! We steamed through the night arriving as the only boat at offshore Riffles. The guys, a mixture from the Goldy, Sydney, and the Gong, enjoy their first surf at the perfect un-crowded right-hander. Jason. Q clocked up at least 4 hours nonstop surfing.
Next day Bells takes its first victim snapping Wazzas mal clean in half. He learns to ride a short board pretty fast.
Day three - The Office. In the afternoon the tides pushes in the swell to a pumping 4 ft. The boys are stoked!! The knee boarders are chargers. Heaps of good shots! Bit of excitement as we feel an earthquake. Pull up anchor and head for deep water, but all is good.
The boys enjoy a day with a light offshore at Lances Left. Rob takes a few inside ones and requires a bit of first aid. Big Dave takes the wave off the day. Some celebrities drop in for a visit.
The swell drops a bit and there is a heap of fish to be caught. Michael, Rob and Brett go on an expedition and bring back a feast. Delicious fresh fish for dinner. Watch the sunset with full bellies, beers and good company...
A few sore heads the next day but once in the water surfing 4 ft glassy Frankos all feel a million bucks again. Jason.P rides his old faithful board and is ripping it up. Feel a couple of more earthquakes - all O.k.
Reluctantly our trip comes to an end and all leave with a sparkle in their eyes and many memories of white sandy beaches, coral reefs and sick pits. See you next year boys!
