YOU LOSE SOME. YOU WIN SOME.

Those of you drop in on this blog may have noticed I've written nothing about going for a surf lately. Because, bar a couple of very short sessions while shooting the Musica event, there's been very little to speak of in Victoria.
Weeks of absolute freezing drivel, punctuated by short periods of slop.

Not very inspiring.


Meanwhile, the east coast of Australia has been battered by swell after swell, in between storms, floods, high winds and a fair amount of mayhem.


The talk is we're entering a La Nina event.


At least the 100 year draught is over.


As I do my daily Swellnet check, I see waves, waves, waves all the way down the coast.

The day before yesterday was a classic, with the daily pic (by Sean Scott) a little more beautiful than most.

That there's hucking a big air...

Not that I'd know from any personal experience...

That wave's a little outta my comfort zone...

Hell, it's way outta my comfort zone...

What a great photo!

I have not surfed much in the last month either. Been trying to stay in shape and bidding my time for the hurricanes. Thinking about going to the skatepark again.

Hey Professor...
Sunday looks good for a wave on the Peninsula... I hope you get wet!

By the way, have you see this?:

Also, on the 70percent.org site there's an "Anything but three" event, which sounds right up your alley... check it out.

Loving you work mate. Looking forward to seeing the movie!

Cheers

Dolphins in the mist? I'm with Doc, a bit hairy for me.

Your banner says "Life" & "Art" before it says "Surfing." So, if the surf sucks (we've got the same problem right now in Oregon), you're free to spout off about just about any other topic, as I see it...
