I made this vid up for "theBike" from another thread.
Small waves...... but looking at the amazing conditions in the beginning makes me happy.
This reef is at least 800 yards offshore...
I was out on a 9' board, when I noticed I was surrounded by jellies with 8 ft tentacles.
Didn't think it would be good to fall into that mess, that far offshore and alone..... so I grabbed a big board and enjoyed the pure glass!
A foil may have worked but you would be using a lot more energy and it would be hot over there. The jellies story reminded me of doing an over boom catapult into a mass of Portuguese man'o'war face first while learning to windsurf in RMI. Then I had to try and convince a local storekeeper to give me some vinegar on credit. Soon after some locals I knew pulled some leaves from a bush, told me to chew em up and rub on tentacles. Worked a treat.
If you're ever in Yamba or Hawaii around Thanksgiving PM me and lets go surf.
goggo.... hot is an understatement!
95 degree air, 95 degree water and high enough salt content that I felt like Beef Jerky after a 2 hour session
Yamba? How weird is this.... I was just exploring that area on Google Maps yesterday!
Thanks, I'll do that if I get back to OZ... Yamba looks amazing!
