Woke up at 7am this morning to very very windy conditions, and having not got to sleep till 1am last night I didn't fancy the surf, had breakfast and slept through till lunch. Apparently I didn't miss out on all that much, and it's good to have a day out the water to let all the cuts have a chance to heal. Been putting antiseptic cream on quite a big graze on my ankle, apparently you have to watch for infection, especially after a lot of rain when the creek washes swamp water into the sea. Touch wood that'll be ok!
Paul (the New Zealander) bought a board from a local Aussie today so Yoya (the Sweed), Paul and I went off to get it for a day out of camp. Chilling here and being away from all the local civilisation (only 5-10 mins by car) doesn't bother me at all, especially as I am surfing a lot, but some of the others are getting 'cabin fever'...
Spoke to Mum and Dad on the phone for the first time since Dubai today which was really nice. Glad to hear everything is well at home. Hopefully wifi will work next time so I can do FaceTime with them!
Hopefully the wind will have died down tomorrow morning as its blowing an absolute gale at the moment. Swell still seems to be building too. Our lesson with Linton is in the afternoon, so will get a free surf in in the morning if possible...
