She’s already there LA, Mark used water-based paint so not aqua anymore.

yes, yes - my mate is an avid reader, a profound thinker, a sharp dresser, a heavy drinker and a hard rocker, a connoisseur of fine cheap handjobs and rashly concocted assortments of over-the-counter drugs and the sworn enemy and bain of all sorts of injustice, hypocrisy and imperialism, a grand eccentric and poet-warrior in the classic sense. if he makes it over here with the bat board and we make it down to dragon head in time for a storm in the south china sea, for sure there'll be a story to tell. good thinking, ric!

ok, no footage of Campbo coz of shit waves and bad weather and he flew out to the next event, so unfortunately, no footage of Mick testing the AquaBat out...Craig at Solitude Surf tried hard to make it happen so thanks...he will get some footage and a few surfs on it before it heads south to' Slowly ' at Newy and then he is taking it to Sydney on the 2nd...so will need to arrange Sydney surfers and some photogs too, let me know if you are keen, Rv and Butts will go first, then dunno, will have to suss it out as we go...cheers...MORE pics coming soon....

Haven't heard from Craig yet to pick the board up!?

Slowly and I are Qlders so it'll be ok...but I do know what you mean about the courier stuff, I appreciate Craig from Solitude Surf payin for it and gettin it there but that was never the plan, wanted the surfers to work out ways of passing the board along amongst ourselves and hopefull meeting each other too, chattin about surfing and talkin boards and maybe make a few new mates out of it ???? anyway it should be in Newy today and then in Steak n Kindney on the 2nd...Butts is doing some pics and SDC is keen to get the posca's on to it...should be interesting....still would like to send it OS or on a road trip or something ????

MMMM..still no sign of the Fatbat and it is now Friday morning!

I would have loved to have a crack on it..especially as the waves were pumping on the central coast yesterday, the "test pilots" still all scored great waves ..luckily as the mob was starting to turn on me with no fat bat 2 days in a row!
Hope to still get it today so I can at least pass it on to RV when I get to Sydney tommorow, since I am responsible and not a useless fark..yep thats you Craig..tosser!!
So mark have you heard anything from craig at all since Tuesday.

Cheers Ben

PS Must be said that mark has been in full contact and very helpful the whole time...not like this wanker Craig...sorry, sorry. deep breaths.
