Masturbating in a warm shower whilst fantasising about an old flame is a proven technique according to Messr Carroll.

Hey ... I'll try anything once.

I know just the flame too. Adriana. She was Brazillian, not Lima ... but freaking close.

I'd like to hear more about this place called Tasmania Braithy, when you get a spare minute.

Hope TC is ok. Had a good chat with him on the weekend in between surfs. Talked about Hawaii, his daughters ballet and then somehow the conversation moved onto talking about injury. TC was stoked to be pretty injury free and his ankle is feeling good and all ........and then this. Another board in the arse. Again hope he is ok.

For sure Steve. I've been totally indulgent so far and just been surfing my brains out. Getting use to the cold, the rubber, fire making and gathering. A few bush walks here and there. Haven't even fished yet, though I did eat some tuna and a few crays the neighbour bought me over from his last trip out to the hipolytes ... premium seafood.

... But in the coming weeks, I'll get out there with the camera and get some shots, and put a thread together over on the tangents board. Will be buying a video camera and putting a little Shippies piece together too, with a few of the hard nuts who tackle that for fun.

I'll take requests too.

I can say this: People here are golden. Had a car accident on the way down. Found a panel beater here working out of a decent shed on his property, who gave me his own car for the last 2 weeks to drive while he fixes mine.

there was some article on the radio the other day about the Spirit of Tassie being a drug superhighway.
Check behind the panels, Braithy, you may never have to work again.

Oh my god, it's like the beginning of one of those horror movies where the giggling young couple decide to spend a night in a haunted house on a dare
Speaking of haunted. The T.V turned itself on at 11:06 last night. All by itself. No one down there, everyone tucked up into bed. The remote was in a drawer on the tv stand.

Paranormal activity?

Discuss.

*edit. I'm taking a drive right now to check my panels.

Oh come the fcuk on, do you really need to make or receive a phone call at 7:30am on a Sunday morning while sitting on a long board on a pissy little break waiting for a so-called set to fart its way through? Do you? Make or receive your phone call in the car park and leave your phone in the car, you complete and utter wanker. The world is an amazing place, but not in an SBS-ad-at-the-cinema kind of way.

Not epic and a bit fat with a light southerly wind starting to take the shine off by the time I took this pic, but FMD... Saturday morning and 5 minutes from a Westfield and NO-ONE OUT???

I blame it on roadworks, the footy, and ongoing unfavourable surf forecasts. :D

Went for surf today. First in a long while.
Started out well, wetty fitted which was a blessing as the sou'wester had sharpened incisors that were gnawing away at my pasty flabby flesh. The walk then paddle out was sereal under the jutting bassalt and I felt a calm that I've only felt lately through intense mindfullness practice.
Finally the lineup reached, a few smiles and nods to the other assembled players on this stage and we wait for the next act to begin. Sets come and others go, I wait my turn, my calmness now focused on catching my wave. It comes and I dig deep and paddle hard, I struggle to stay with the wave but gravity finally came to my aid and I'm reaching down for the deck and pulling my legs up under me. I ride, no, its more glide along the face and slip out into the channel and collapse.
I'm fcuked, sheer exhaustion and sensory overload.
I'm back on the horse

Fcuk there were some swell periods on display this arvo.
I sat on the Point with Carcass and watched 18seconds of S swell marching up the coast. Neither of us had ever seen those periods before.

Unfortunately that tremendous pulse of stormsurf energy around lunch-time had sent rivers of sand packing out to the storm-bars and the opportunity for some unbelievable surf was lost.

The deckchairs will be scrambled after this lot.

Went from 1 ft and unsurfable to 4ft and great to 6ft and not much fun in an hour mid afternoon.
Least, that's what I heard, phone ringing as I did paperwork all arvo...

Swings and roundabouts.
