So yesterday was my first full day off since I started working as a Grom, hence why I got on it the night before with everyone else.
I woke up about 6am, still merrily drunk.. I got up about 6:30am and went to see some of the academy who were in just the same state as I was. After discussing the night before at some length, we got some breakfast about 8:30am.
Once again at breakfast we discussed the happenings of the night before, which was truly hilarious!
After an hour or so I decided to go out on a foamie to splash around, as it was a beautiful warm day and the waves were really small but fun.
A surf soon became a swim, as the waves got so small, I just was swimming around in one of the lessons talking to charlie and another instructor.
I got out of the sea and laid on the grass with academy until lunch to dry off and get rid of my hangover.
After lunch we were all bored and just laying around doing nothing, when someone had the 'bright' idea to use hair removal cream on my chest. After a bit of persuasion I conceeded it would be a laugh..
An hour later and the whole front of my torso is bald as a baby's bum, which everyone found highly amusing.
Once my skin had settled down again I went out to the point with Ross, but to snorkel as there was no surf. The water was incredibly clear, you could see about 10+ feet down to the ocean floor! We didn't see anything particularly interesting, just a lot of normal sized fish, but it was a really nice way to spend the afternoon.
After snorkling there was a tiny wave out front, so I took out a foamie and just messed about for an hour or so before dinner.
After dinner everyone was exhausted so about 5 of us watched 'Lords of Dog Town' on someone's laptop, and just generally chilled out. I think I eventually got to sleep about 10:30pm ish..
