An improvement in the weather finally! Got up mid-morning had some breakfast and went for a walk/kickabout on the beach with rory. Then we decided to give sandboarding a try so hopped on a bus to the dunes. The boards were essentially planks with footloops and our first attempts narrowly avoided doing the splits! However the longer we did it for the more confident we became and we soon trying stunts like jumps and 180s. Cue some amusing falls(All captured on video of course)! Then it was time for the big one, imagineÂ steep black runÂ with sand on it, which we got down with only a few falls!Â I should also mention rory was still finding pockets of sand days later!
Back at the hostel we went out with the lads we had met to play crossbar challenge. Basically you stand about 15m out and try to hit the crossbar. In warm ups my rugby style of kicking worked a treat and I drew first blood. Then we had a game with ollie, rory and I versus Kerslake, Chubb and Sam. I wasnt too chuffed as there was money riding on it and rory had missed spectacularly everytime up to that point. I neednt have worried as he stepped up with his first kick and smashed the crossbar and then with the scores tied at 2-2 in a first to 3 game he hit the winner! We played normally for a while and called it a night.
