Our lesson was at 7am this morning which was pretty good - it was considerably smaller than yesterday, other than the odd set, and there wasn't much wind. I enjoyed it a lot more and got a couple of stand out waves. One of which both Rhys and I were on so I'm looking forward to watching that video in theory at some point.
After our lesson I came in for a 2nd breakfast before going back out with the other group. By then the surf was pretty rubbish so I got out after about 40 minutes.
The between about 11am and 3:30pm all I did was chill, eat lunch and watch the Ripcurl Pro Bells Beach. The final was absolutely amazing - Kelly Slater V Mick Fanning. In the end Fanning won but it was a fantastic 40 minutes of surfing to watch.
After everyone had watched the final (including Rhys) we had fitness...ocean mission. It consisted of swimming out back through and back to the beach in 3ft surf, running 200m, paddling out back and back on a foamie and another 200m run.
It was really good fitness training and it's part of our assessment so good to practice. Coincidently I came 2nd out of everyone behind Lennie, and completed it in 12 mins 30 secs, which is apparently a really good time..?
All I have done for the rest of the afternoon and evening is chill out so in bed now at 8:45pm as everyone is super tired. Going to go for a dawnie surf at Mullawara tomorrow..
