It’s by no means the wave wrap of the year because the waves were so amazing last weekend. Quite the opposite, the weekend brought once again less than average conditions. So I thought I just use this wave wrap to wrap up the year for Venus Goes Gidget. I know the year is not quite over yet but I’m heading to Sumbawa on Friday and my sneaky suspicion is that there might be no internet connection and too tricky to update the blog over the next few weeks.
First of all, I would like to say thank you to all my loyal readers from all over the world. Most from Australia, followed by the US and Austria but also from more random countries like Lao, Pakistan (?), Morokko, Kuwait, etc… Thanks for all your comments, feedback and actually reading this thing.
Special thanks to all gidgets and page 3 boys of 2012. You’ve been absolute rockstars aeh surfstars and set the bar high for 2013. The gidget and page 3 boy pages were the top viewed pages all year. The top 3 non-gidget or page 3 boy related post were:
All in all it’s been an amazing year, I’ve enjoyed every second of writing about my passion that is surfing and the ocean. The waves led me to Sri Lanka, Java and I’m going to finish the year with a trip to Sumbawa. I’ve made it into the Austrian surfing team. And my personal highlight, I’ve done my surf instructor…Now, some people may think so what big deal… Why am I telling you this? Partly because I’m really excited and stoked about it but partly because I know it’s not always easy out there but if I can do it, you can do it. Just remember to have fun, follow your dreams and never give up. Gooooo gidgets….
Next year I’ve got big plans with Venus Goes Gidget, so keep on reading and tell your surfing friends about it. Watch this space…In the meantime, I’m hoping Santa will bring some Indo barrels for me. Can’t wait – two weeks Sumbawa will bring some relief from the wave drought we’ve been experiencing here.
Again thanks peeps for reading Venus Goes Gidget! Merry Christmas, lots of love and may the new year bring lots of waves and sunshine for you.
