Not one of your best Steve. A lot of fluff, not much substance.

How many standard drinks over the course of the week?

Just an approximate, of course.

God that's depressing steve. I would have enjoyed mercilessly burning the Quebecois.

Did it sound depressing?

I had the time of my life.

Took to paddling out in the dark, dunno why, never been much of a dawn patroller but I guess I got into the habit this winter and carried on. It felt nice surfing a break I'd never surfed before before the sun came up: Macaronis, Lances Left, Telescopes. You couldn't see but you knew the wave was alright so you could let go and surf by feel. That felt great. Just a pair of boardies. No suncream, or any other shitt.

I rode a brand new 6'1" 90% of the time. A lost sabotaj. Very much in the Pyzel Ghost, DHD sweet spot mold. Took about 3 waves before it felt like an old pair of blundstones. Very reliable. Thruster.

Normally 2 or 3 beers after that dawn session. Breakfast. Tried to get some shitt done. Couple Gudam Gurangs.
Tended to have a couple more beers then a really long midday sunburn session.
Couple more beers, then a late lunch.
Usually another surf before or on dark.
Then 5-10 beers. Couple shots of rum.

Never drank after dinner.

My theory was, if you drank enough water and were active enough, the body would use the carbohydrate from the beer as fuel.

Although I drank a fair bit of beer every day I coward dodged a really big blow-out on the piss when my brother and mates polished off a bottle of tequila and rum....I had a couple of tequilas on my birthday.

I did the work before the trip, mostly strength and conditioning training, so felt fine there. No need for paddle endurance , take your time paddling back out. Easy enough to surf 4-8hrs in a day if needed. Got a bit knotted up in the back at the back end and a weird tendinitis thing in my elbow but a couple of nurofen seemed to deal with it.

Rode a 5'6" Cymatic at times and had some brilliant moments on it, but also some dreadfully kooky ones. If I was feeling sharper I would have rode it more. The reaction times of the hull and EPS were just a bit beyond me, most of the time.

The kooks didn't bother me a bit. Not a scintilla. It's their time now.
In fact it changed my paradigm thinking about what is possible for adult learners. Cut loose in Indonesian reef breaks, very big performance leaps are possible for them.

Last day I was off the boat in the dark. Telescopes was oily and roping. There was a full moon hanging low in one end of the sky, the first hint of purple on the other. Last strains of morning prayer wafting out of the jungle somewhere.
I wasn't the first out. There was a pair of frenchmen already sitting out there but they'd been drifted way up the reef.
Waves came to me, one after the other. By the time the sun came up I'd had my fill.
But I still had two more surfs.
We drank the boat dry on the way in.

I guess by Mentawai standards we got skunked but it was grand times.

It was descriptive really. Peachy buttocks are peachy buttocks.

Doesn’t mean you were perving, just observing.

Right?
