"...wave his machete at us to keep us away from the cows when they were mating"

Hmmm, perhaps I could have phrased that somewhat differently.

Count me in. Mating cows may be a thing of the past but there's still plenty of room for vigorous outdoor batting. Surely.

Offie, cows still mate....usually with bulls though. The small elegant Balinise Cows are no exception.

For a realsurf bbq it'll be a line of saggy, hairy bean bags in a row.

That's just your old fashioned gender bias.

I went to a great little event down in Thirroul on Friday night, a slide night basically, with photographer Mick McCormack. One of the pioneers of the 'action' shot, getting in behind the surfer in barrels etc. amazing stories and shots from Cowries, Aussie Pipe and Hawai'i. Mainly late '70s-80s.

Man, so many great stories behind the camera. He talked about how fit you have to be to get out there, ran 13kms every second day and swam 2kms in between.

He's got a good IG of some of his most iconic shots.

My brother was down at Bendy on the weekend and called me to say that you’re doing the South Coast for Swellnet. I said that that would be extremely unlikely. :-D-:

I'm forecasting NSW on the weekends. So, mostly just minor tweaks to what has already been done.
I'm there to keep a hand on the tiller.

While I'm up front, spread eagled across the bowsprit, screaming "I'm the King of the World!"

These are great days, my friends.
