Ok, I’m officially over winter. It’s far too cold. In fact, it was so cold today, that I chose not to go out for a second surf. It’s true. I’m not making this up. The Austrian did wus out because it was too cold and maybe I was a little bit surfed out too after another weekend of great surf.
Rewind to Saturday; Saturday was amazing. I went up to Curl Curl. I love Curl Curl. The surf was a 3-4ft, clean and peaky. So much fun. And it was warm as opposed to Sunday. It almost felt a spring day. I got a head-spa (a little barrel) and the caught the wave in the set of the day. You know it was a good wave when the old seadogs in the surf congratulate you (put Aussie accent on here): ‘noice one, darl’. By the time I was back in Bondi I was so tired, I face planted straight into my bed for the longest nap ever missing the rest of the beautiful spring day.
Sunday, we were heading to Maroubra and oh it was so much fun again. It was still around 3 foot out of ENE. But f… me I was so bloody cold. I had to get out of the water just after an hour. My mate and I were both frozen. Thank god for ugg boots and car heaters. Even with the sun out, it would not quite warm up though. I periodically kept on checking the surf throughout the afternoon. Even though it looked quite good, I just could not get myself to zip up again and jump in for another one.
I better brace myself for tomorrow morning. Just saw the weather report. It’s looking like temperatures are not going to get above 7 degrees in the mornings in the upcoming week and 20 knot Westerly winds…The surf’s better be really good to justify myself rolling out of bed. Maybe it’s time to get a 4’3 after all.
