This morning I woke up about 8:30am when I heard everyone moving around in the kitchen etc. I got up and had breakfast and got the low down for the weekend. We were thinking of going to Noosa to walk around with some friends, but the weather was horrible so we didn't have anything to do today.
I checked the webcams to be pleasantly surprised - Carrimundi was meant to be really good, for the first time since I have been here. I threw all my stuff in the car and went straight off for a surf.
I got there to find glassy 2-3ft peaks breaking all the way down the beach! Super excited I jumped into my wetsuit and ran straight down the beach to a peak with just a few guys on.
I was having a brilliant time and getting some really good waves, until about 45 minutes in. I tried doing a little air off the top of a 3ft wave and landed badly on the board. It turns out my knee had smashed up the rail of the board really badly, and also put a big dent in the bottom causing a crack along the stringer. Absolutely gutted and pissed off I had ruined the session I got out and came straight home.
Having cut out all the smashed glass and foam it's even more damaged than I thought. I am going to see if I can get a shaper to fix it, as they will do a better job than I will..
Having had some lunch and with nothing else to do with the afternoon, Diggor and I went back to the same beach. I had waxed up and swapped the leg rope onto my other board so took that out, and Digs went out on his body board.
Unfortunately the tide had come in and completely ruined the surf, plus the rip down the beach was a nightmare. We were only in for an hour or so, then went down to Moffat beach to mess about in the shore break barrels on body boards.
We came home once it got dark, had showers etc then got takeaway pizzas in for dinner, as we still can't use the kitchen properly and Cecily had a friend staying over.
We then watched a film called 'Few Best Men' which was pretty funny.
I skyped home too before i went to bed, as they are all off on holiday for 2 weeks in Portugal tomorrow. Hopefully they will get hot weather and have a great time!
