My group's lesson was at 7am this morning, so had to get up super early again. Turns out we did an hour of watching back videos of us surfing the other day - all extremely useful and interesting stuff, but it's just so difficult to think about it when in the water and actually try to pull it off.. I'm still having the issues with where my arms are and how to compress my body form bottom turn to top turn.
We then went to Mulawarra and there were great waves. Average 2-3ft with some 4ft sets coming through. Waves were a bit funny though so really had to pick your wave in the right spot. I enjoyed the 3.5 hours I spent in the water, but didn't feel as if I had surfed very well at the end which was very frustrating. Although I did nail one proper top turn.
After lunch was meant to be fitness, but instead I did a bit of work on the dings on my board. It appears to be taking on water, making it heavier. I knew it would only have to be a temporary board, but I'm going to need to get a good one sooner than expected. All the new ones in the catalogue would be $450-500 after discount Atleast, so hopefully I will pick up a good 2nd hand one for about $300, which is reasonable.
Had another game of monopoly this evening where I came 3rd of 5 so that was a laugh. Going to sleep now and don't have to surf till 9:30am tomorrow. Perfect.
