First day at Giraffes Bay.
Just a quick hit to let the world know what the 2 biggest giraffes on tour have been up 2.
We are in J-Bay a little earlier than every other punter this year. It’s our rookie year so we decided to hit it early and try and get in a few head flicks before everyone gets here.
Waves have been small but fun, and – my god – the water is so bloody cold. I was cooking Rossy for bringing booties, telling him he was tripping that he would not need them, and as soon as my big toe hit that water I knew I was the one with egg on my face.
The understated look goes down well ’round these parts.
We went for a mission down the coast for a wave yesterday and were told it was only 30 minutes away, a short drive down a little dirt road … one hour later, and one missing hub, we found this little wave that looked so fun.
The only thing was it was pretty much pitch black and I am pretty sure our big mates under water were frothing at the bit for a couple of giraffe’s to hit it for a late one. So we decided to give it a miss.
Which leaves us with today, the boys were up at 5:30am this morning, pumped for a little session at J-Bay before the weekend crowd hit it. We were the first ones out and snuck a few little grinders in under everyone’s noses.
New warm clobber we got when we hit the local markets yesterday. Yew.
After the surf decided to hit our new local for a couple of hot cups of java and some eggs on toast. Pretty much summed up a perfect morning for the boys.
So, there you go world, that’s what the 2 biggest rigs on tour have been up 2 for the last couple of days.
