Welcome back to Noosa!! Sort of speak.. I wish i was there right now as i writing this but unfortunately that was a few weeks ago now. As i'm a bit behind with my blogging, my apologies.

Jingo and I had one last hooray at Noosa, surfing. And it was a doozy this time, a 6 day hooray! It was bloody brilliant! We knew that it would be our last chance to go, so we were gonna make the most of it...as Jingo is moving back to the states and i'll be moving to bigger and better places in Aus, well let's hope anyways, it's good to think positive eh.

So i'm not sure if there's a whole lot to say with our extravaganza of surfing, you really had to be there...besides that we both surfed like mofos! I am getting a wee bit better. I am able to stand more consistently, still just ride the wee wave in straight, for a few seconds and no turning..but it's absolutely brilliant, it's such a high! And addictive! There were a couple of days when the conditions weren't really ideal, there weren't really any waves at all and the tide was in really tight (that's cuz there was a half moon). But we didn't fret none, the other days made up for it totally. The one day we went to a different cove called Teatree, the waves were killer, so easy to catch and ride, not too big either. I got some of my best rides that day. Then the last day, at teatree again, it was a wee cloudy, sunny and rainy all at the same time and the waves were huge (well for my standard anyways). I got thrown around like a wet rag..and even felt violated at times..haha. Even to paddle oot and actually get over the waves was exhuasting, didn't seem like i was getting anywhere. I'm sure i was the only 'surfer' having issues as it seemed all the other pros were getting oot and over no problem. So by the time i actually got oot a decent distance, i was tired but it was super easy to get a wave, cuz they were breaking so well and so powerful..so got a few decent rides. And the other times, the wave was too big and the nose of my surfboard went flat into the water, tipped me over and around and aboot and around again. What a ride either way! Loving it!

We finally started to get smart and packed a lunch each day of sandwiches, chips and beer so we could just stay at the beach or the rocks and just hang...watch all the other surfers, try to get better that way...watch all the groovy animals, dolphins, turtles. Oh and a stingray that just magically jumped from the water..don't think they jump usually, it was well cool though! We saw another koala as well in the national park. There's a national park all along the coast where all the different bays and coves for surfing are. There's a plethora of walking trails, but we didn't venture far from the ones along the coast, far from the surfing hotspots.

So that's it...the end of a very small surfing legacy, very sad but very glad i had the opportunity. I'm not sure when i'll get the chance to surf again, depending where my travels take me and depending if i can find a surfboard...you just never know!
