How's this for a Wave of the Day? A surfing Llama? What unfortunate creature will be next hauled onto a surfboard?

Hey Southshore,

You can send any photos to me: [email protected]

I'll get back to you to let you know if they'll run or not.

We don't run many shots of surfing llamas.

Yeah Yorkessurfer there are some strange goings on in the world of surfing at the moment. For instance a mate of mine reckons he saw what looked like a palsied gibbon bouncing around on a board out at the back beach this morning ! Weird huh ? What makes it even stranger is that I was surfing out there all morning without even seeing another person , let alone a surfing monkey . What's he been smoking eh ?

What impressed me most was the Llama's drop-knee technique then just to take it further casually lifting a front leg too! Why he needs a life vest on with that kind of confidence I have no idea?

The llama's got better style than his partner that's for sure.

They're pretty llamo swimmers.

Our brains are too small at the moment to comprehend the reality of what's happening in our forests . We're only just waking up so to speak . The big problem is we think we know everything, we are specks of dust on a timeline and we know nothing .

Doesn't it conjure up a wonderfully relaxed mood? And that's despite it being one of the more fercocious waves on the coast.

Pete said it's where he likes to hang and have an arvo beer while watching and shooting the waves.

Light Bulb!
Old mate went there in the late 70s, he has two whole photo albums of that wave. Each photo he's slotted, boring after the second page, not. Looks like that once small village is no more.

It's an interesting photo/perspective.

The thing that stands out to me is despite the mess of losmens right next to each other, not far behind it is still fairly untouched, while when you are there it feels like the mess goes further back.

Nias is pretty screwed up, but i think if the community all rallied together and agreed on things like building restrictions and code etc and worked together on re greening and landscaping and even bringing beauty back to the high and dry reef, Nias could really be changed in a positive way.

Unfortunately there seems little motivation for this :(

Please Stunet just give me that ignore button for Crypto (Herc, uplift or whatever other names he has used)

What is also clear and i did notice last time i was there was the clear line where the land is being reclaimed, going to be interesting what happens here?...will it stay wasteland like it has in recent years, or will they build in front of other losmens?..or?

Would be nice if they could replant coconut palms and landscape with that fine grass etc.

But again, highly unlikely :(

The Cronulla guys were such a big influence in the 90s. Idolised the McKinley bros, and others there, as surfers. A lot of brilliant surfers came from that region during that time.
