So this morning our surf lesson was at 9:30am, which was pretty lucky as I had a lay in again and sorted some stuff on my NetBook.
The group before had gone off to surf at Sandys and hadn't got back in time for our lesson, so we went off to surf Mulawarra and Linton met us there. Unfortunately the surf was absolutely crap - about 1-2ft max and choppy as hell. Despite having a really rubbish surf I came out in good spirits though, it was just fun to be out in the water with everyone.
I'm still trying to improve my technique with Lintons advice but its so difficult to remember it all.. The 2 key ones are 'reaching' for the top of waves to get lift out my bottom turns, then following on from that I need to do top turns right up by the lip, not just half way up the wave..
As standard over the last few days we just got back in time for lunch, then sat around in the movie room chilling out afterwards.
This afternoon I sorted out some more things on the NetBook, like backing up all my photos etc.
I also looked up when I had booked my flight to Singapore for. It turns out I had set it for the 5th of July, which if work as a Grommie here and go fruit farming I will never make. I only have 3 free flight changes, so I guess I will have to try and leave changing it to as late as possible so I don't have to change it twice..
I am also getting drips and drabs of stories about amazing jobs people have managed to get out here - one guy knows someone and all he had to do for his farm work in the outback was shoot kangaroos with a rifle, all day,everyday!!! How much better is that than fruit picking!!
Daveo, Dan and Charlie are still set on going up the coast to earn some money and get the VISA sorted though, so hopefully we will go off and do that eventually..
Anyway, only other thing worth mentioning is that it appears I am missing nothing what so ever back home. Even the boys in Wiltshire arnt meeting up as much as when I was there, wonder if they regret going straight into working..?
Oh yes - I shaved the beard, as is visible in the photo. However I was convinced to keep the goatee as a laugh for a few days..
It's now 9:30pm and I am exhausted so time for bed. Surfing at 7am tomorrow too, wahoo.
