Surf Trip: Gnaraloo 09 ( 20 June 2009 - 27 June 2009)
Wind Strength: Strong
Nb waves ridden: 3
Surfboard ridden: 7'6
Waves height: 1m-1.2m / 3ft-4ft
After the last session I really wanted to get out there and combine the skills that I have with the confidence to ride the waves we had. The last session I hadn't surfed to my ability but had learnt some important lessons.
Unfortunately the conditions weren't lining up for us and today was bigger than Monday but with less shape. I caught a few waves and fell off them. I caught one in the foam and got angling, but just couldn't quite get around it and onto the face. Went for miles though... then paddled back out. I was chuffed that I was catching the waves, though. Finally I caught a nice one and got angling along the face... right up until it sectioned and I didn't manage to get round it.
This was the last session we got. The other days were either bigger, the wind was screaming onshore or the current was so strong that getting into position would have been next to impossible for me.
I've learnt a lot and can't wait to get out at my home breaks with a different view on what 'big' is.
Hoping for small GLASSY conditions when I head back next year. :) Can't wait to see it at its best in offshore conditions.
