Pretty boring week really. Not much surf, not much of anything really. Winter - you aren't over yet - so how about delivering some waves? Charts not looking much better for this week either. Sigh.
In the absence of surf, some of the locals have taken up slack-lining. Join in only if you have ankles of steel!
Lots of the lighties made the trek west to go surf in the Billabong Junior Series presented by Bos, held at Long Beach over the weekend. Pint size waves for the groms, but looks like they all had a fat jol anyway. Great results for the EP kids, with JBay's Kirsty McGillivray winning the u14 girls, Sebastian Williams the u14 boys, and Emma Smith the u20 girls. You can check the full wrap and all the pics here.
Local surfers Bruce Campbell and Tracey Admiral did really well in their first international Xtrerra event over in Czechoslovakia recently. Bruce got 7th in his age group and Tracey got a 3rd. Xtrerra events are off-road triathlons. Here's Bruce enjoying the scenery on a training ride over there...
Richard Swanson went on an Indo mission in June - reckoned he timed it perfectly cos all the Brazzo's were home for the world cup so the line-up's were manageable. He hooked into some absolutely smoking Nias - see for yourself...
Another local on an Indo mission is Jbay's Trevor Hansen, who's getting slotted as we speak in the southern Mentawaii's. Based at Kingfisher Lodge - homebreaks of Lance's left and HT's. They've been getting some cooking surf, with more on the way. So far he's been dinged in the eye and broken a board. Means he's charging! Look forward to seeing the shots when he gets back....
