DELIBERATELY STRANDED IN OZ

Well … still in Australia. My family and I have decided to stay through until Bells finishes. We were thinking about heading back to America but Charlotte and I like it here so much we decided to stay. We are headed to Sydney right now; to cruise, see some friends and just be tourist.

Just one of the reasons to be a tourist in Sydney.

Just one of the reasons to be a tourist in Sydney.

I caught some really good waves after the contest and that really helped heal the disappointment I had about my result at the first event.  Also (during the semis and the final of the contest), Greenmount – which starts where the competitors kick-out – was firing!  

Everyone out was getting so barreled it was crazy.  I think if you could get to your feet and set a rail – you were getting barreled.  Caught some good beachbreak action at Straddie and saw Taj, Clay, Kelly and a few others enjoying the perfect A-frame peaks.  

Which brings me back to why it’s so hard to leave Australia, I think they have so many good waves over here it’s just not fair. Most of the other competitors I talked to ended up going home but when your family is with you and everyone is having a good time, there’s no need to take the long flight home.  Sydney should be fun, there ‘s a lot of stuff to see in this place.

  1. Did you have a good time? A surf at Avalon, the wedge or Palmie followed by a burger at the boatshed or a pie at collaroy followed by a few beers and dinner by the harbour. Perfect!
    That shot must be the bower but who photoshopped out the 40 guys usually on it (sup Stu!) and made it look bush?
