It required a disciplined approach to score a long ride. I arsed one at the start then pissed around in the crowd before returning to my original starting spot and nabbing a few.

Even smaller today. Finished with a classic fade. Guy who had been trying to dominate :roll: the micro line up was paddling back out after I had let him take the last one and he decided to paddle inside me and attempt a pathetic claim as we approached the inside peak. Not on my watch compadre.

Junky NE Windswell. Went out for a couple but my sore back saw me back……in sooner rather than later.

I caught a wave and saw the reef boiling a bit and thought there was just enough water over it, but my fin caught and I launched head first into the reef so quickly I had no chance to do anything... I saw a bit of jagged perfectly framed and thought this is not going to end well at all, I managed to turn my head sideways so I hit side on, blacked out for a few seconds. Came too disorientated, felt like I was king hit but there were was no real damage except a few bleeding scratches under my hood.

I thought it was really bad at first, like broken jaw, missing teeth, left eye badly damaged. Some friends who saw it happen came down and I was watching their expressions to try and gauge what it was like. The problem was I was moving fast on my board and when the fin hit the reef the board just stopped dead and I kept moving forward and the leggie pulled my feet out from under me.

I was OK, not concussed, just a bit out of it for about 15 minutes.

I did get a serious concussion about 10 years ago. I was hit in the head by a guy on a board as I was duck diving. I had to be helped to shore and was incapable of doing anything. Luckily there was a nurse who organised everything. They took me to hospital, someone drove my car and parked it. They kept me under observation until10pm, my son picked me up, I was still in my steamer. I had a crippling headache for about 24 hours caused by my swelling brain!
